Patient Comments (1)
Knoxville, TN |
He is very knowledgable & is a nice guy. However, I feel like he is rather hard to get ahold of & consults only through voicemails left with his nurse Kathy. I feel like there were a number of communication breakdowns with this process. Most of the issues were a result of his nurse being impatient, pushy, & down right rude with me. She crossed the line & is inconsiderate. Dr. Stancher did not spend much time with me at appointments & was constantly changing information discussed at visits.
