I never have anything bad to say about Dr. Schweitzer or her staff. I have always been treated with exceptional care and respect. I tell my family and friends all the time what an excellent Doctor she is. I'm so fortunate to have her as my Doctor and friend.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

I'm not sure if my first recommendation went through successfully so I am sending a second one. I would (and already have) recommended Dr Schweitzer to several co workers and friends. Dr Schweitzer always listens to me and address all my health concerns in a very easy to understand and follow manner. I thinks it's rare to find a great doctor and I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Schweitzer. Thank you for your patience.

Dr Schweitzer is one of the most through primary care doctor that I have dealt with in many years. She is patient and reviews all results of tests with you, referring you to a specialist if you need it. Her follow up practices are excellent and her office staff is wonderful.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

It's a bit of a drive for me, but it's worth it to have a physician who listens carefully to me and cares thoroughly for me according to my own lifestyle. I have an ongoing medical condition and rather than just throw medicine at it, she listens to what I like doing, what my goals are, what I feel good about, what worries me, and makes a careplan that addresses those things.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

I love Dr. Schweitzer but I really think it kind crapy that the office will not call in enough of my anti depressant until I can get in to the office. #1 its dangerous to not have this stuff in your system COLD TURKEY- I feel drunk driving into work and I feel like I'm drifting back in forth in my head like I'm on waves in the ocean. I can barely get up and when I do I feel like a zombie. I spoke with the clinic today and they wont even prescribe me a few pills until I can get in to the clinic!!
We are so sorry to hear about this. Please call our office manager, Heather @ 615-641-6767 so that we can address these concerns and work to make improvements at the practice.

Hello My appointments with Dr. Schweitzer always go well She has perfect bed side manners. Every visit she comes in with a smile and immediately begins my visit with ease by first asking how I am doing. She is thorough with reading over my history to make sure she is knowledgeable on my condition. She listens to me and she also provides feedback as to what her professional opinion is based on what I am dealing with.

So happy to have scheduled an appointment with Dr Meredith Schweitzer! Great team of compassionate caring people. From the moment I walked into the clinic I felt comfortable and relaxed. The Doctor was so professional yet amazingly kind and interested in really listening to what I had to say. The Nursing staff was reassuring and helpful. I feel as if I won the lottery with my new team of health care providers. If you are looking for someone to trust, I suggest you this clinic.
Thank you for connecting with us about this experience with our staff. We will be sure to pass this appreciation along.

This clinic and Dr. Schweitzer are like doctors used to be. They are going to give you the best care they possibly can. I wouldn't want anyone else! They actually read your records, and make calls to other doctors on the spot if they need more info.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

This dr. Is very personable, always smiling, and remembers everything about you. Takes her time with you, no rushing. She is very knowledgeable, for I ask ALOT of questions. And I don't always take my meds, she don't judge me. I drive 23 miles to go to this dr.

She was my doctor for over a year. During that time therewere several incidents where I felt like I was being dismissed, a guinea pig for whatever the pharmacy reps were hawking in spite of my preference for affordable medication, had to correct them on insurance billing issues more than once. The deal breaker was after waiting almost an hour first appointment of the day for a well care check up being told from her that she didn't have time to listen to me about a health concern I had.
We are so sorry to hear about this. Please call our Practice Manager 615-731-8390 so that we can address these concerns and work to make improvements at the practice.

I am more than pleased with Dr. Schweitzer. While looking to start a new relationship with a PCP, I located Dr. Schweitzer online. I was able to get an appointment within the week on the day and time I needed. My wait time was brief, and Dr. Schweitzer spent a good amount of time getting to know me and my medical history. The nurse called me in a couple days and asked me to return to the office so Dr. Schweitzer could go over my lab work. She probably saved my life.
