    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.

    Dr. Vandevender and his staff are the most caring, kind people and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else for my medical needs. Just calling their office for assistance is always met with the most compassionate nurses, Leslie and Mickey, you could ever ask for. And there's not enough good things to say about Dr. Vandevender. He takes time to find out what you are experiencing, asks questions and gives the best care possible. My husband (also his patient) and I think he is just the best.
