Maryville, TN |
You must sign a pain management consent form before you are allowed to see the doctor. I asked to discuss it with the doctor before I signed it and the front desk staff said no, "you must sign the form before the doctor will see you". If that is how they treat you before you are an official patient, I can't imagine how they must treat you once you are a patient.
Nashville, TN |
He has a very bad after care attitude. When you ask for answers to genuine questions, his replies are vague. Takes no accountability for things that may be wrong. Treats younger patients with ill regard and offers no alternatives. Releases you to go back to work to your insurance company but neglects to tell you. Offered no note or update involving restrictions. Would not recommend this physician to young adults.
