Patient Comments (6)
in Spring Hill, TN |
Had a piece of chicken lodged in my throat. Dr King came in an explained for 10 minutes what he was going to do and what some of the causes may have been. While I was knocked out, he reassured my wife everything went well and explained in detail what he did. I can highly recommend him and thank him for his professionalism regarding my situation. Couldn't ask for more from a Doctor

Excellent surgeon. Does a great job explaining about medical issues and takes time with his patients. Caring manner. Highly recommend.

Dr. King got to the root of the problem, he is staying on top of the situation with frequent and necessary procedures. His bedside manner is impeccable, he shows he cares, he takes time to answer all of the questions asked. By far my favorite doctor.
in Gallatin, TN |
I have had doctor King for my Gastroenterologist for 15 years. He is my favorite doctor!
in Nashville, TN |
Very knowledgeable and efficient. Stays very busy but the N.P. Can usually work you within 5-7 days. I always like seeing N.P. anyway, probably because they are usually female and take more time with you. He tries conservative measures prior to surgery. They handle things on the phone when possible. When you call in, you get usually the same guy who is extremely nice and caring. You don't get a machine. He did surgery on me, and I had very good results. I have been an R.N. for 22 years.
in Franklin, TN |
Too much in a hurry to get on to his next procedure to appropriately address my problem. I have a malabsorption issue that he completely shrugged off, and it took years to discover the root problem. He had an opportunity to really help but chose to path of least resistance and most profit. Do not recommend if you have anything other than a straightforward problem that is going to require any effort.
