Patient Comments (5)
Nashville, TN |
Smart doctor and good technician but there are a lot of good technicians. He is late... always late... sometimes HOURS LATE with no apology or reason. I have found another GI doctor
Nashville, TN |
My mother became his patient in the hospital. She went from there to rehab. The nurse practitioner tried on several occasions to call him for a consult. He never returned her calls. Finally, she scheduled an office visit. We went to the appointment. He was an hour late. He came in there with a chip on his shoulder . He is not a good communicator, rude, and is not compassionate. We left the appointment with 0 help. We won't be going back and have already found another doctor. 0 rating

I can't recommend anyone to this office!! I don't have issue with any staff on a personally level BUT the wait time for results is ridiculous.
