First appointment so we aren't in too deep yet. so far I am the most confident I have been in the last six months that I finally have a provider who is knowledge about my potential condition and takes a whole health perspective. Finally feel on the right path to getting the correct care for a potentially rare and unknown condition.

dr sergent is an amazing doctor. what other doctors couldn't figure out in the past 9 yrs dr. sergent figured out in less than a week. I'm very blessed to have found such a talented doctor
Patient | June 27, 2018

I was very impressed with Dr Sergent. He completely explained everything that was going on. He gave me every possible side effect from the new medications I was about to start taking. He forgot to tell me one in the office and he had sent me a message through my health by the end of the business day. I would reccomend him to anyone!
Patient | June 19, 2018

I love Dr. Sergent and he can never retire!

We completely trust Dr. Sergent.
Patient | April 3, 2018

One of the best doctor at Vanderbilt, would recommend him to anyone.
Patient | April 3, 2018

Dr. Sergent spent 5 minutes in the room with me. I timed him. while testing the reflexes in my ankle he used the back of his stethescope, which was uncomfortable not to mentuon not very effective. He asked me how long I have been seeing him, but my record was in front of him on the computer. He dismissed the diagnosis a neuroogist gave me, but offered no other solutions, when the diagnosis would be related to my diagnosis of RA. He dismissed me when I asked about the side effects of my medication. His attitude was unpleasant and dismissive. I spent 3 hours at the clinic for a 5 minute appointment. I will be looking for another Rheumatologist. He is supposed to be the best in the city. If that is the case, those of use needing a Rheumatologist are in big trouble.
