Patient | February 5, 2017

Dr Gore is the Best! I am so thankful he is my Rheumatologist
Patient | January 30, 2017

I drive a good distance to have Dr. Gore as my doctor. I would recommend anyone!
Patient | January 27, 2017

Very good! #10. Great!
Patient | January 24, 2017

Dr. Gore knows what he's talking about and always gives me resources that will benefit me.
Patient | January 17, 2017

I travel long distance to see the dr. I am reluctant to take new meds and I feel that I may not always understand the consequence of that. I am overwhelmed by my condition and I guess I just need more information about my condition also the future and the risks/ benefits of treatment. I also want to make sure I have had all necessary test to determine diagnosis and outlook.
Patient | January 9, 2017

I have recommended several friends to your office already
Patient | January 9, 2017

Dr. Gore is ALWAYS the most Compassionate & Professional of ALL the Doctors on my sons team as well as his staff. We Appreciate all he time and attention he and his staff provides, he is the Most Dedicated Doctor we have.
Patient | December 12, 2016

Dr. Gore is friendly, professional, and always willing to discuss my condition, medications, or any other concerns that I might have. I believe I have done well under his care and would recommend him to friends and family.
Patient | December 1, 2016

Patient | November 22, 2016

Dr. Gore is an excellent example of how a physician should act toward their patients!
Patient | November 20, 2016

always very friendly and listen to me about my condition and provides the care I need
Patient | November 5, 2016

Always a good experience.
Patient | October 27, 2016

Good experience always with Dr. Gore
Patient | October 17, 2016

Dr. Gore and his staff are among the BEST in this country!
Patient | October 17, 2016

I am concerned that he had not read the lab results that I had done two weeks before my appointment. He told me he guessed it was in the stack on his desk. I left there not knowing the results.
Patient | September 26, 2016

I just can't say enough good things about the care I received in all aspects.
Patient | September 14, 2016

Dr Gore is my favorite doctor. I have recommended him to many people.
Patient | September 8, 2016

I didn't feel that he was very understanding of how I was feeling about what we were discussing. When I asked him a couple of questions he said 'it is what it is.' I don't feel that is very professional nor did it help with what I was asking. He is good at providing different options and choices but his bedside manner is not welcoming or friendly. This is an ongoing thing but this visit upset me
Patient | September 6, 2016

I have suffered for decades with my problems. Dr. Gore is the only physician who has ever stopped to take the time to piece everything together and give me a proper diagnosis. I have already referred my sister to him. She is now under his care. Furthermore, I am referring my clients, who have arthritis/bursitis to him.
Patient | September 3, 2016

I believe Dr. Gore is a good physician. He is always very informative, patient and listens, and is very good to explain any concerns or questions so that I can understand. He always takes in consideration my concerns and includes me in my treatment plan.
Patient | August 30, 2016

I have referred several people to Dr. Gore. He is excellent in my opinion.
Patient | August 28, 2016

I am constantly recommending Dr. Gore to others. Though I live 90 miles from his office, the travel is well worth being in his care. I've had other Rheumatologists in other states, but feel blessed to have moved here and found him.
Patient | August 16, 2016

I only wish I had more time with Dr. gore to discuss my increasingly bad condition.
Patient | August 15, 2016

I am very thankful to be a patient of Dr. Gore's. I would refer anyone needing a rheumatologist to Dr. Gore.
Patient | August 15, 2016

I have recommended this care provider to numerous people.
Patient | August 8, 2016

very professional ,caring physician. hard to find doctors like this
Patient | August 1, 2016

Very professional and thorough in making certain i understood everything.
Patient | August 1, 2016

Dr. Gore treated me as a partner in treating my illness, respected my intelligence and fully explained all his diagnosis protocols. He was open to questions and answered them thoughtfully.
Patient | August 1, 2016

I would not travel 100 miles to see Dr. Gore if there was a rheumatologist in my area. I have been told by a neurologist and my family physician that I need to be followed by a rheumatologist. I usually only get refills on medications and routine bloodwork. If I have other issues Dr. Gore just refers me to another Dr.
Patient | July 28, 2016

repeated himself three times with everything. good for the average person, I guess.
Patient | July 26, 2016

I recommend Dr. Gore as much as I can. He is the best dr. for R.A I have ever known.
Patient | July 26, 2016

Great doctor!
Patient | July 21, 2016

Dr. Gore inherited me as a patient when another dr. in this practice relocated. He is excellent and I would not want to change rheumatologists.
Patient | July 14, 2016

Patient | July 4, 2016

Only great experiences so far.
Patient | July 2, 2016

Dr. Gore spent a lot of time with me, was very kind, and highly knowledgeable.
Patient | July 2, 2016

I have recommended Dr. Gore as an excellent rheumatologist many times.
Patient | June 28, 2016

Dr Gore works with me and my arthritis and other pain conditions ( along with 4 spine surgeries) and is what a doctor should be. I've not met or worked with any better that Doc.
Patient | June 25, 2016

(Very happy.)
Patient | June 15, 2016

As I previously stated, Dr. Gore takes extra time to insure that all my questions are answered and he follows up with additional information if I need it, through his nurse and/or staff. We travel further from home to use Dr. Gore in my son's team of medical professionals because he is very intelligent, patient, compassionate and that makes it worth the travel of 1 & 1/2 hors to his office.
Patient | June 14, 2016

Very professional!
Patient | June 13, 2016

I cannot over emphasize the respect I have for Dr. Gore professionally and the medical care he provides.

Patient | May 9, 2016

Patient | May 1, 2016

Fantastic doctor, don't know what I'd do without him.
Patient | April 21, 2016

I was recommended by a patient and I would do the same!
Patient | April 14, 2016

see earlier comments. This care provider came highly recommended. He was everything we heard about and more. we are so grateful and even more grateful that it wasn't hard to get in. we are from East TN and were nearly at our wits end prior to getting the appointment and being seen by Dr. Gore.
Patient | April 10, 2016

Always great - excellent and compassionate. Never had a bad experience in around a decade as his patient with routine visits at least every 3 months and more often with disease flare ups. My wife also sees him and feels exactly as I do.
Patient | April 10, 2016

Outstanding - I HAVE referred others to him.
Patient | March 29, 2016

Dr. Gore is very knowledgeable and is always prepared for my routine visits. He takes my questions seriously and provides thoughtful responses.
Patient | March 17, 2016

Before my first visit, I had seen multiple specialists outside the Vanderbilt system that were unable to diagnose my condition. At my first visit to Dr. Gore, a sense of peace came over me, that I had finally found a doctor that understood what I was feeling, and explained my condition and treatment plan in a way that calmed my anxiety.
Patient | March 17, 2016

I've been seeing Dr. Gore for 10 years now, and would recommend him to anyone! :)
Patient | March 15, 2016

I respect and trust Dr. Gore with all aspects of my condition.
Patient | March 11, 2016

Dr. Gore is the best. I shudder to think of what my health would be like without him. I recommend him all of the time.
Patient | March 8, 2016

Dr Gore is the best doctor!!!
Patient | March 4, 2016

He listened to my concerns and explained the procedures he planned to take to identify the treatment path he thought would be of the most benefit to me. All referrals were completed before I left his office.
Patient | March 1, 2016

I love Dr. Gore! He has been a gift to me. He is the first care provider I've ever had who allows me to have a say-so regarding my treatment. He is always courteous when I have questions regarding my treatment...even if the questions may seem silly. I highly recommend him!!
Patient | February 23, 2016

I have recommended several friends to Dr. Gore. All have been satisfied.
Patient | February 23, 2016

I feel very confident in Dr. Gore's knowledge base and care. An excellent physician.
Patient | February 23, 2016

Dr. Gore is fabulous!
Patient | February 22, 2016

I have been a patient of Dr. Gore's for several years and I am doing well under his care. He is always very professional and personable. I feel that I receive excellent care and advice from him and he always includes me in my care and he uses vocabulary that is very easy to understand and I believe he really cares about his patients and their care.
Patient | February 16, 2016

I think Dr. Gore is very knowledgeable just didn't seem to have enough time that day & probably couldn't give me all info I needed till x-rays/blood work back.
Patient | February 8, 2016

I like Dr Gore so much I have recommended him to several co-workers
