Patient Comments (2)
in Nashville, TN |
My daughter has been in pain for years like myself as a child. I made an appt. earlier this year for her. Her appt. was at 11:30am and she was not seen until after 6pm. We waited on him 6.5-7 hours after her appt. because her pain is that important to me as a mother and knowing what she is going through. We got about 5 min. I have yet to find help for my pain but when it comes to my child I will not stop looking for a doctor that can and will help her. I don't think he even looked at her x-rays.

Misdiagnosed while cracking jokes. Told us to research on the internet for further information and as to decision making.
