She cares about you as a person not just as a patient.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr. McCafferty is great. As a new patient she took the time to get to know me. And with every visit she asks lots of questions so she can accurately access my health. With Dr. McCafferty I don't get herded in and herded out like other doctors do. I'm a person and she's truly concerned about keeping me healthy.
Nashville, TN |
While Dr. Linda McCafferty looks well put together and is an experienced, savvy Physician, her bedside manners need improvement. Also, at times, it is very hard to get in to see her. Overall my experience with her as my PCP has been only fair.
in Smyrna, TN |
Dr. McCafferty is very thorough and kind as well. She also has a sense of humor.I know that there are not many physicians like her and feel lucky to be one of her patients. I would recommend anyone to make an appointment with her. I have multiple health issues and she takes the time to take care of me. She also follows up with me when needed.

most amazing Doctor always spends time with me and always gets me the help I need
Brentwood, TN |
Excellent doctor and nursing staff. I have a complex medical history and she spent a lot of time with me to obtain my history as well as provide a game plan to improve my health. Prompt notification of test results. Did not think doctors like her still existed. Look forward to working with her to get as healthy as I can. Highly recommend her.

Dr. MCCafferty' s office was very efficient. Loved their new tablet sign in system. I was seen promptly and greeted very warmly by the doctor. She listen to my problems and made several suggestions as to how to handle my situation. I was very impressed with Dr. MCCafferty.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr. McCafferty has been my doctor for a few years and for a good reason. She is thorough, competent, and current. She has always helped me through any health issue I might be having and she does so with a sense of caring and a sense of humor. I completely trust her with my care and recommend her to all my family and friends.
Murfreesboro, TN |
Had a wonderful experience with Dr. McCafferty. Her staff and her were great. Took time to listen and explain in detail recommendations and explanation of results when available. Doctor was kind, considerate and extremely knowledgeable on various subjects. Great bedside manner! Would definitely recommend for someone looking to establish with a new physician!
in Murfreesboro, TN |
I've found her to be direct and precise in all that she does. Her questions are open and pointed to find any areas of my health that need attention. She's always been very thorough and has someone follow up with me if needed. Her staff are just as caring and helpful as she is. She has always encouraged me to push through if I have an issue and to tell schedulers that she prefers to see me rather than to seek out fast paced medical clinics. I've been very happy with the medical care there.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
They canceled and rescheduled my appointment twice. The second time, after waiting a couple months, was canceled less than 24hrs before my scheduled appointment. Then, the next appointment they had available was not for another 3 months!! Looks like I'll try to find another doctor...
in Murfreesboro, TN |
I picked Dr. McCafferty as my PCP when I enrolled in Humana 2-1/2 yrs ago. I never seen her. They always give me appt with the Nurse Practitioner. Today after being told the Nurse left, Dr. McCaffery would not see me because SHE DOESN'T TAKE HUMANA This is even tho she is STILL listed in the directory as taking new patients w/ Humana.Humana got me a new doctor but won't pay for me to see the new dr til next month I'll be out of blood pressure medicine before then and Dr McCaffery won't help me
in murfressboro, tn |
Best physician I have ever been to. Listened to all my problems and provided empathy as well as recommendations to improve my health. Felt like I was her only patient. Appt on time as well.
Murfreesboro, TN |
Is not at all communicative. I called the office for information about a referral to a specialist and had no follow up, only to find out she referred me with no context of the situation to someone I was not comfortable with. I also felt I couldn't trust her to remain unbiased in regard to any decisions about sexual health. I left my one and only appointment feeling like she cared more about the preservation of my virginity rather than giving me informed info on the upkeep of my sexual health.

I've seen her several times and have been Impressed with her dr. patient professionalism. Unlike some physicians, she doesn't keep you waiting for ever. Most importantly she is a great listener and very through, which means a lot.. I hope to continue to have her as my physician and life saver.

Dr. McCafferty is very compassionate and efficient. She seems to care about me as a person, not just a patient.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
Zero beside manner. Treated me with brisk 'efficiency'. She may very well be quite a competent physician but there are no lack of doctors in Rutherford county. I would much rather not be talked down or treated with such arrogance.
