Dr. Zubkus was very condescending during my visit. I was referred to him, and I will never go back. He was very dismissive and rushing. I was treated as unimportant. I guess I was his last appointment of the day. All the office staff, nurses, and lab techs were great, though.

I am from out of town and went with my sisters to our other sister's appointment with Dr. Zubkus . He was very knowledgeable, very focused on her care and her well being and quality of life plans for her. Please understand, this doctor was being compared to my very own Oncologist in Charleston SC, whom I adore. I was very pleased to see and listen as he explained and answered each and everyone of our questions. I have the up most respect for this physician and feel confident with his care.

Dr. Zubkus is fantastic. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my hematology care. He was very patient, compassionate, and thorough when I was super freaked out.

I wish I could rate ZERO for Dr. John Zubkus. NEVER refer him & I am reporting his terrible patient care to the TN Med Board. Wait times are ridiculous (even labs). He doesn't answer questions, offer help unless you are at the end of life. ($/Claims=his ONLY care). If you need Oncology care, DO YOUR RESEARCH! Just because TN Onc is the biggest and most prominent DOES NOT mean they are best! SO MANY OPTIONS, wish I had done MY research before wasting my precious time.

Definitely will not come back and hopefully no other cancer patient. If you are an older patient like my grandmother, who is a breast cancer survivor, you will be told to not pursue cancer testing because it doesn't matter because he deemed her too old. Very disappointing and disgusting how he treats patients. His nurses were sweet and the only good there...except a certain nurse practitioner who was rude to any and all.
