Patient Comments (2)
in Cleveland, TN |
I have worked in healthcare for over 12 years and I have never encountered a more pompous, rude, and inept physician. He walked into the room during the initial appointment with my mother as if he was irritated to be there. His first words to her as he shook her record at her were, "Why are you even here?!". Apparently, her brain tumor was not big enough for his brilliance. After 3 months of me calling with no response, I transferred her to Vanderbilt. She died two months later. Stay away.

Please choose another physician from this group. This dr will belittle you, be very abrupt and act as though you are wasting his time. From the way he treated my mother, had she not be the strong person she is, he would've made her cry!!!!!! Because of his status as a neurosurgeon, you will be told he is brilliant. Ask the staff, who in this group isn't a brilliant surgeon, the answer they all are. We now have to go Knoxville/Nashville because we stood for our beliefs.
