Nashville, TN |
The first appt for my child was at the Nville office.I had to wait an hour because someone in the office scheduled the incorrect time.We did find out,my son had a polyp in his nasal cavity.I had to schedule a 2nd visit after X-rays.On a Monday the ofc staff called & asked if I could come earlier for my Friday appt.On Thursday at 5 o'clock,I get a phone call stating that Dr D won't b n the office!We've gone to Vandy since then & the dr is treating the polyp rather than surgery like Deaton wanted.
Dr Deaton is thorough and uses lay men's terms to explain medical situations and practices. I will recommend him to family and friends.
