Dr. Geiger spent an incredible amount of time with my wife and I. I feel like he would have spent longer had we needed it. We were very appreciative of that.

Not only did they answer questions tell me stuff I did not even know whatsoever They would not just operate on me even if I wanted them to they put up a team to see if I could even have an operation The time and the caring that this doctor has and his whole team was some thing I've never experienced by another doctor in my life They were easy to talk to really cared about me Telling me stuff that other doctor had talk to me about Even tests that other doctors gave me and I did not get the full report they gave me the report and answer questions and explain to me test other doctors had given me I've never seen anything like it It was the most wonderful experience ever !

As a VUMC employee, I have great respect for our service providers. The ability to get in to see one like Dr Geiger at short notice is awesome. I can't express enough the peace of mind I have working and receiving care at VUMC.
