Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.
