Best Doctor I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
Brentwood, TN |
Dr. Vandevender has been my primary care physician for several years. He is the kindest, most caring physician I have ever known and would recommend him and his staff to anyone looking for a physician. There are not enough words to describe how much I appreciate him being my physician.

Dr. VanDevender is an incredible doctor, and a caring individual. My family and I have been in His care so long that I can't tell you exactly when we began going to him, but what I can tell you is that the care we receive from him is second to none. He likes to treat families, and over the years our family group (by recommendation to each other) has grown to the point that he treats nearly all of us. I would recommend him to your family as well.

Always the expectation of being treated cordially with a friendly, collaborative attitude. All my concerns , whether trivial and misguided or significant, are addressed in a friendly, professional, serious manner with rational, effective recommendations and treatment based on Dr. Vandevender's training and attentive well-focused observations throughout his career. The highest level of care and the feeling of great concern for the welfare of his patients

Dr. VanDevender Has been my doctor for over 33 years. he has always taken care of me and has sent me to other physician as needed over the years that he knew would take good care of my health needs. He has always explain to me all my health question and cares for me very well. Each time I visit for a check up, the first thing he always ask how are you doing and what trips have you taken since the last time you were in to see me. His is my doctor but also my friend. His staff are great also.

I was blessed when moving to Nashville from out of state twelve years ago to be introduced to Dr. Vandevender. Through his extreme knowledge and personal interest, he has made suggestions and directly connected me with specialists, in different medical fields, that led to life altering and potential life saving treatments. He went above and beyond what I had grown to expect from my prior doctors.

You will get no better care anywhere than with Dr. Vandevender, his staff and the Frist Clinic staff. I have been going to them many years and they are hands down the best. I do have other physicians that are specialists that I see so i do have other practices to compare to.
