Loudon, TN |
I would never recommend the doctor for anything. She was rude, hateful and diagnosed me wrong even after being sent records from the neurosurgeon.

Dr. Cross is a fantastic physician and has been a continuing source of care along my path for recovery. I had a hemorrhagic stroke 8 months ago and it has been a long road. She seemed to be focused on my heart so I didn't really know what to think. Of course she knew what she was doing. I apparently had a hole in my heart so she referred me to a Cardiologist. My Cardiologist (Dr. Foster) patched up the hole last week so hopefully I am on the mend.

I went to see Dr. Cross for help with migraines and Thoracic outlet syndrome, which I had already had surgery for, but my surgeon wanted it to be managed by a neuro. She acted like she didn't even know what TOS was, never even touched me or examined me, and just increased medications for my migraines. I am an RN and feel as if I could have done a better job at taking care of this. I've worked with many doctors and Dr. Cross did NOT impress me at all. I will not be going back to this office.

Does not listen. Spent maybe five minutes in room with me. Prescribed medicine I had already taken in past that didn't work. Very disappointing experience.

Dr. Cross is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever had. She is top notch in every way.
