Patient Comments (5)
Memphis, TN |
There has been a serious decline in the services of this office since I started in 2009. Since April, 2017 my care has not been taken seriously, the crowning blow was a Friday afternoon 1:45 endoscopy appointment that finally took me from my room at 4:45pm---intolerably inexcusable. There was obviously an overbooking problem and this is not the first time I've experienced this. Now I see there is incorrect information on my chart saying I was tested at 2:15.

Dr Fields or his nurse do not listen to the patients regarding symptoms.
Memphis, Tn |
Dr. Fields is nice and thorough but i was told multiple times by the nurses that i would be called back with my test results and each time i never recieved a call when promised. That is just ridiculous and not necessary. There are too many good doctors in Memphis to go to a facility who do not care enough to call you when they say they will!!!!

Dr. Fields is very professional and courteous. He cares about his patients and looks after them. The staff are kind and helpful. I had both upper and lower endoscopy with Dr. Fields. It was great to be under his care.

Doctor Fields is hands Down the BEST Doctor that I have ever had. Not only is he very patient and kind, but it's clearly obvious that he actually cares about you & your specific condition. Doctor Fields is extremely through during exams & checkups. It's really nice having a Doctor who I can completely trust. I am very lucky that he was able to both find and remove a Polyp that I had that usually doesn't occur in women my age. Dr. Fields and his staff are absolutely amazing!
