Patient Comments (2)
in Nashville, TN |
Very efficient and caring physician. Thinks outside of the box. Can get you in quickly if necessary. Caring and has his nurse check back several times after the procedure to see how you are doing. Good bedside manner.

Dr. Sumner performed my latest colonoscopy and after explained with pictures so I could easily understand the procedure. Very personable and I think a real nice person.
