Patient Comments (2)
in Nashville, TN |
I had broken my finger in several places and Dr. Baxter had my case added on the following day for surgery. He is a spiritual man who prayed for me right before taking me into the operating room. I would highly recommend him as he is also thorough, knowledgeable and kind. He listens to the concerns of his patients and is willing to answer any questions you may have.
in Tullahoma, TN |
I suffered a burst bursa. It became infected and he kept me on continuous antibiotics for several months. Causing severe hemorrhoid issues requiring subsequent surgery. Would not order MRI until I threatened to change Doctors. When he did, he filed with the workers comp carrier that the MRI was not work related, even though he knew it was and I had been referred to him by my employer for treatment under WC. > 1 yr collections agency trying to collect. MRI indicated surgery. Poor attitude.
