Brentwood, TN |
Dr. Rochester and his team have gone above and beyond their call of duty to assure that my treatment and medications are working for me and that I continue to improve. Even when I gave up, they didn't. He and his team are easy to deal with, friendly and confident. They instill confidence in me that they know what they are doing and are doing all they can for me. deciding to come to him is the best decision I've ever made.

Thought he was a godsend. Worked in tweaking my medication until we had it just right. Saw him for a couple of years - always impressed with his professionalism and memories of my specific situation. Then, my life fell apart when my Mom and Dad died within three months of each other - All aspects of my life, including paying bills or even opening mail. Unbeknownst to me, I had a past due balance of $125. Once I finally opened the bill, I paid immediately. He refused to see me again. Devastating
It would be highly unusual for the office to terminate care based upon payment (or lack of payment) on an account. There are always other factors that should have been clarified for you. I am sorry if that failed to happen. Hopefully you have connected with a new physician and are healing from the loss of your parents.

Dr. Rochester is very cool. He really listens and remembers, and it's like a pleasant visit with an old friend. He doesn't talk down to me, and he has this consistently calm, intelligent, gentlemanly professional manner that inspires my confidence and trust. He explains things in a useful way that allows me to make sense of my experiences, he allows me input into my treatment decisions by giving me options to choose, and he's NEVER impatient. He has a great reputation with other docs, too.

Dr. Rochester is very caring and has been very accurate in assessing my medical issues and recommending changes to my current medications. I would definetely recommend him.
in Eagle's Point TN |
Very patient-oriented beyond all the other Dr.s I have seen over my long and treacherous life. He listens intently, asks pertinent questions, lets me express my concerns and them makes studied, and helpful suggestions and diagnosis.
