Franklin, TN |
Great doctor! He also looks at your total health, not just the kidneys! I have always been told by other doctors that he is one of the best in town! I know that he really cares, he spends as much time with his patients as is needed. I've never felt I was rushed to end the appt., and totally trust his medical diagnosis and treatment!
