Nashville, TN |
I was very impressed how he handled my daughter and was able to diagnose her using "unusual" tools for a doctor. He brought in a doctor bag full of "toys". A puppet, balls, and other kid things. He was amazing and had great patients with my child. He wanted to make sure he had answered all my questions before he left the room while still putting me at ease with everything.
Thank you for your positive feedback. We are committed to the care and improvement of our patients healthcare.

Nothing like trying to diagnose a problem with your child...DR. VALERO has a tendency to talk down to the parents rather then talking to them. Doesn't likes to be questioned too much. His time is too sparse. We got to see him once or twice with each visit lasting 5 to 10 mins with nothing but being told... Let's try this medicine. If a doctor can't relate and talk to the family rather than talking down to them... Well it's the reason we switched Dr's.
We are sorry to hear this and truly value your feedback. Patient experience is important to us at Tristar Medical Group Women's and Children's Specialists, so we will make every effort to address any concerns you may have. Your comments have been shared with the practice manager, Deborah Clinard. If you would like to speak with someone about this experience, please call the practice manager at (615) 341-9333.

Absolutely amazing! Dr. Valero will try and do every means necessary to take care of his patients. Truly a caring doctor. I am not even from Nashville Tn; yet, the trip to make sure my son is getting the best care is definitely worth the 2 hour drive. We love Dr, Valero and you will too. I recommend Dr. Valero to everyone!
