I hope you never need to see an Neurologist but if you do, I highly recommend Dr. Dongas. She has been an amazing help to us as we have been taking care of a mom with Alzheimer's.

Ted Ingram's initial appointment was February 1. She saw us in Dickson. She spent considerable time with us, which I (Judy) really appreciated. We will see her in six months. On February 13, I called the Nashville office to report the anxiety that Ted was having, he has Parkinsons. I told her nurse and I actually talked to Dr. Dongas. She prescribed Alprazolam 0.25mg and explained I was to watch closely if he stumbles or fall. None of this has happened. So he has taken 4 1/2 tablets. I appreci

Dr. Dongas is a good and thorough doctor. However, trying to get through to her office on the phone is almost impossible. The same is true for leaving a message and waiting on a reply - almost impossible to get a call back. We are taking our brain business elsewhere.

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.

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!
