Patient Comments (7)
Hendersonville, TN |
Dr. Hande is very good and helpful. He fully explains terms and conditions and listens/thinks of his patients very well. The office he is in is a different story. Wait times are horrible, both in the waiting room and the exam room. They underestimated my total care costs by half, and were unsympathetic about my surprise extra costs. Probably would not recommend.
Gallatin, TN |
Less than a star for office staff. I saw Dr. Hande and he was average. If you want rude service this is the place to go. I spoke to 3 differant office girls not gonna mention names however a previous post explained her to a tee.... but they need a attitude adjustment and not work in the public .....Dont go to this place you will be disappointed in his staff. I was very sceptic on going here because of the reviews....and needless to say reviews don't lie.....

My wife saw him first, then referred a family friend then myself. All 3 of us had very good experiences. He has a great bedside manner and really cares. Highly recommend Dr Hande!

Would not recommend this Dr. or office. Don't know if he's good or not. His office staff is the worst I've even encountered. Absolutely incompetent and rude.
in Gallatin, TN |
The most inept and rude staff I have ever dealt with. Doctor does not return phone calls regarding important medical concerns.
in Hendersonville, TN |
biaca or diaca is one of the rudest people I have ever spoke with. I called the office two weeks ago & never heard anything back. I work at a PCP dr. in Goodlettsville and had somebody call for me. She said Bianca was rude. She said that she had called me twice and she wasn't going to call me anymore to make a appointment. I am a long time patient of dr. Gillespie so needed to get his records over, she said I would have to come by & fill out a form for me. I cancelled my appt. & never recommen
in Greenbrier, TN |
I highly recommend Dr. Scott Hande. He has been my doctor for overy fives years. He is a very good listener, patient and takes all the time needed to answer your questions and explain anything that you need to understand. He has to be the kindest doctor that I have every met. His office staff is great, very efficient and it's easy to make appointments. The wait time is short and the waiting and exam rooms are very clean.
