in Nashville, TN |
Dr. F is the best doctor I have ever had - ever! He has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever had, and he maintains focus on you (not tapping away on a laptop or distracted). He is extremely patient, answers all of my questions, and is open to a more natural (less medicine) approach if that is what you prefer. You may have to wait a bit longer to see him, as he's in high demand, but it's well worth the wait. I'd refer anyone to him without hesitation and will stay his patient!!

Personable and well informed.

Excellent personality. Appears to be genuinely interested in the well-being of the patient. I'm very confident in his abilities//knowledge as it relates to Gastroenterology.

I have seen Dr. Fakhruddin two times now for procedures and both times he has incorrectly coded my procedure. He was not honest in informing me what my risks were, telling me I'm high risk but then billing me as the opposite. After speaking to his nurse, the hospital, the Frist clinic, and the anesthesia group multiple times no interest or help has been offered. I would literally rather get sick than ever go to see him or visit this hospital again. They are completely incompetent.

Dr Fakhruddin clearly loves what he does, and his patients. He has the most amazing bedside manner and is a completely genuine person. I trust he is taking the best care of me and has my best interest at heart. I've had tummy issues for so many years & feel like I have finally found the best physician for me. If you need to get in to see him urgently...he can make it happen. Dr Fakhruddin is the best! I will continue to see him as long as he is I practice & refer as many other folks as I can!
