Dr. Dongas is an absolute professional. She is always on time and somehow manages to take her time with my mother. She is very patient. Awesome Neurologist!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share these thoughts. Our staff will pass along the kind words!

Dr Dongas is one of the best doctors I have ever been too. She genuinely cares about her parents.
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!
Dickson, TN |
Dr. Dongas goes above and beyond. She is kind and listens so well. We trust her judgement. When things are not going well with the medical condition, she is right there, by your side, walking the walk with you. She realizes that this kind of medical issue is a "family affair" and includes all who are involved in the patient's care. The staff is second to none. They make you feel like you are going to see caring friends and treat each patient as individuals, not just a chart number.
in Burns, TN |
Dr.. Dongas is very professional and caring. She takes the time to listen to all questions and concerns, and then gives meaningful and insightful answers. In my experience, she is one of the best physicians I have ever had. Highly recommended!!!!
in Portland, TN |
Dr. Dongas is a great doctor. She takes time to listen to you about your concerns. She treats with great respect. Very knowledgeable about my condition. She does not demean you or use medical terms without explaining what it means. ALWAYS ask if there are any concerns that you may have. The staff are always pleasant and courteous. She has called me on the weekend to discuss the results of my tests. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a neurologist for their condition.
Smyrna, TN |
This was our first visit to Dr. Dongas. She was very helpful in explaining my Mom's dementia condition and conducted thorough testing. She explained things in terms we could understand. The staff at the window was a pleasure. We forgot my Mom's identification and insurance cards and realized it as we were half way there. Nashville traffic at 8:30 in the morning can be brutal so I called them and they said "bring her on, just email them when you get home". Can't say enough good about them!
in Hermitage,Tn |
