Dr. Bessom has provided me with an extremely rare combination of care: both compassionate and exemplary in quality. Being a healthcare provider myself, my standards and expectations are abnormally high. Dr. Bessom not only meets them but has repeatedly exceeded them. I recommend and refer others to him regularly as my first choice.

Dr. Besson is a great physician full of competence, caring and compassion. He asks questions, and wants his patients to ask questions about their health. He has been the physician my wife and I have seen since he came to Knoxville. I have also referred my sister to him.
