I have been a patient at Vanderbilt since a very early age. I have always had a great experience with every Doctor and Nurse I have had to care for me. Over the almost 50 years I have been a patient, I have had some long wait times, but this year it was not incredibly long, neither was my wait when I was in the exam room
