Dr. Southern cut my hypoglossal nerve while doing surgery on my carotid artery leaving me with half my tongue paralyzed. He said he was sorry and sent me his bill.

Dr Southern and his staff have been wonderful. They have been professional, caring, and at times, have been remarkably flexible and patient with my schedule. To make things easier for me, Dr Southern once made a house call, a fact that still wows me. They are the best!
