    Dr. Cornea is awesome, but one of the senior nurse practitioners is extremely snarky. When I went back, there was a confrontation that could have easily been avoided, if I was the only one that went back there. It doesn't completely effect my views of the place. But if a General Practitioner has inconsistent information, do to blood work. That unevenness should be clarified, rather than leaving it to the patient to make sure events are on working order. The patient has enough on their hands making sure they consistently do whatever they need. I've had a rescheduling at my GP and this place, that could have been avoided, if such information were kept consistent. This is not the patients responsibility. The reason I give it three stars, is Cornea herself is extremely professional and polite.

    Dr Cornea helped end a two year roller coaster ride of antibiotics for chronic bacterial resistant EColi prostatitis. He reviewed all of my medical records and he researched latest treatments and presented two choices. The first treatment worked to eliminate the EColi from my Urinary Tract. No other doctor from Vanderbilt, Mayo Clinic or surrounding area offered successful lasting treatment. Words can not express my gratitude for his care in eliminating my complicated infection.
