Hendersonville, TN |
He was FANTASTIC with my daughter, and was able to answer all questions we had. He didn't spend a lot of time with her, but ordered the proper test, had excellent bedside manner and didn't have to spend a lot of time with us because he was informative and easy to understand in his explanation. Totally worth the drive!!!
Thank you for connecting with us about this experience with our staff. We will be sure to pass this appreciation along.

He seen my daughter while she was inpatient. He was very rude and did not do anything to help my daughter. Actually told us not to bring her back or go to er that her seizures were not epilepsy. We asked for further testing he denied. He recommended a psychological evaluation immediately but released her and did nothing to help us get her in to see anyone. Very disappointing.

Patient experience is important to us at Women's and Children's Specialists, so we will make every effort to address any concerns you may have.

Good doctor so far but long drive and appointments are hard to get any closer than a month away.
Thank you for this feedback and the positive comments about our physician. We want to apologize for any prolonged wait times for appointments, as we strive to provide patients with the timeliest care possible. We are recruiting additional physicians to help minimize the wait times.

Outstanding care, education and information for my son's epilepsy and its monitoring recently at TriStar.

After seeing multiple specialists, we travelled 560+ miles one-way to consult Dr. Pina-Garza. He has changed our son's life. I cannot express in words our gratitude. I would highly recommend him.
