Patient Comments (4)
in Lynnville, Tennessee |
Dr. William Schooley is a great doctor and a very nice individual. I have been going to Dr. Schooley since January of 1998. I was so thankful to have Dr. Schooley as my doctor because he never gave up on me. I had several operation on my head because of brain tumor and I have a shunt. Once the shunt starting removing to extra fluid I had on the brain, things started to get better and I do have great respect for Dr. William Schooley and his staff. Dr. Schooley is a great doctor.

Got me through 7 operations over the past 9 years. Condition is very greatly improved after surgery than before. Highly recommend.

No problems since my surgery in 2013.

I waited 6 weeks for an appt. with Dr. Schooley. He barely gave me 5 minutes of his time during my appt. He gave me no specific diagnosis, course of treatment, or other options. I found him to be very arrogant and apathetic. I called his office to express my dissatisfaction and was assured Dr. Schooley would be very upset and would call me back. It has now been 3 weeks with no call! Maybe it's just me but I want a doctor who genuinely cares about his patients and that was not Dr. Schooley.
