What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Bushkell Jr, MD
Reply
I didn't have a good experience with Dr. Bushkell. He was impatient when I asked questions, and as a nurse practitioner I know he gave me an incorrect answer to another question I asked for professional opinion. He didn't know I was an NP. He handled my problem skillfully, but I would have appreciated some kindness and courtesy. Maybe my comments might encourage him to work on his bedside/exam table manner.

Bushkell the Butcher mutiliated me, and his own Nurse Ratched has the empathy of linoleum. You think that One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a horror story? Try Knoxville Dermatology Group. As I learned from Paul Maben, P.A., and his own nurse, the Butcher had two choices: make an incision and close it with stitches (which would have required only Vaseline and a Band-Aid) or perform a crude procedure that has resulted in my wearing a large and bizarre cocoon that I'm unable to change myself.
