Compassionate knowledgeable doctor.
in Lawrenceburg, TN |
I've been seeing her for over 10 years & couldn't imagine seeing another neurologist. You may have to sit in the waiting room a little longer than you'd like but it's worth it when she stays in your room. She will answer all of your questions & spend as much time with you as needed. She listens to you & will do things that you ask if they are needed. If they aren't then she explains why what she is ordering or prescribing is the best for you. Dr. Ledbetter is the best doctor I've ever seen!!
