She took time to explain my options and worked with my others doctor to find a solution that did not require surgery, she also returned call in a timely manner Great personality
in Nashville, TN |
I tell everyone I meet about Dr. Baxter. I am a little old in years and have had several physicians throughout my life span, but I have met none like Dr. Baxter. In fact her entire staff is more than exceptional - they must really love what they are doing. She was very thorough in explaining the process before and after surgery as well as my follow up final visit. When it comes to her treatment of patients, many physicians could learn from her. Caring, patient and takes necessary time.

Dr Baxter is very thorough in explaining options and what the likely outcome and recovery experience will be. Recovering from Thoracic Surgery isn't the easiest thing I have ever done but knowing what to expect and how to cope with possible issues has made the recovery so much easier.
in Lawrenceburg, TN |
I could not have asked for a more skillful and caring surgeon. Dr. Baxter is the best.
