Paid 50.00 to see the doctor,she wasn't in that day,, so got some test run and rescheduled a appt to see Dr Abernathy ,Went back 2 days later paid another 50.00 and the same test run,, wouldn't even come and talk to my wife witch was very upset, so the PA diagnosed her,, so a month later got a appt with a Dr out of Johnson City,,very very nice dr,,explained everything that was going on,,was not even close to what Abernathys PA diagnosed her with,,I will never ever recommend anyone to go see her
in Greeneville, TN |
Went to see her because I was referred by my PCP. I had violent nosebleeds every day. She looked in my nose and said "Don't irritate it by snorting illegal substances". I have never in my life snorted anything that wasn't nasal spray. She is a disgusting human being.
The office personnel was more than rude. I tried to talk to the Dr about the interaction I had and I was told, she does the surgeries and wasn't familiar with office procedures. I wouldn't recommend after today's interaction.
