Patient Comments (3)
in Bells |
He is moody and can change on a dime. In front of patients. I have seen him rage at a colleage that worked for him and had only asked his opinion on an MRI. He has called and moved and changed appointments 5 times on a patient that was trying to see him for the first time. In 5 years, everytime that I come in there has been a full staff change. Maybe that is due to his anger issues. He is referring me to another neurlogist and MRI images that is some one elses but with my name on it!!!!

Dr. Hunter was the only doctor that could find out what was wrong with me. He is the best Neurologist in or around Nashville.
