Patient | December 20, 2017
I had an exceptional experience at this office. I even had a chance to speak with the resident. The doctor gave me information about my other diagnosis which made me feel like he was concerned about the whole patient and not just the presenting issue.
Patient | December 19, 2017
I would not see anyone else but Dr Pawate.
Patient | December 12, 2017
Dr. Pawate texted from his phone on 2 occasions during our visit and made no apologies, which I thought was slightly discourteous. Perhaps it was related to urgent patient care, but a comment to that effect would have been helpful.
Patient | December 10, 2017
I only hesitate to recommend a VUMC provider because of the extreme difficulties with communication with the physicians' offices, not with the providers and their staff.
Patient | December 7, 2017
Patient | October 25, 2017
I have not issues with Dr. Pawate as of the last 2-3 visits. He has improved in his ability in his ability to communicate versus when I first saw him in 2009.
Patient | September 22, 2017
Dr. Pawate is an excellent doctor. He covers all aspects from your head to your toes. Very thorough in explanation. However, he does speak low in a soft tone. But when I asked him to speak up, he was very nice about it and moved closer to where I could hear him easier. But, he answered all my questions and the prognosis of my symptoms. I would highly recommend him!

as I continue to say I feel so fortunate for the healthcare I received there at the MS Clinic I'm treated as a person not just the number and for that I am eternally grateful
Patient | August 28, 2017

Patient | August 22, 2017
I am glad a friend to let me know about he is a special in MS.
Patient | June 29, 2017
Wait time was extremely frustrating.
Patient | June 26, 2017
Dr. Pawate takes his time with you during your appointment which I like. He does a thorough assessment every visit and explains everything and asks if you need anything before you leave. I have recommended him to colleagues when they ask who I see because I am doing so well, and I will keep recommending him!
Patient | June 26, 2017
Dr. Pawate is very professional. I have a rare autoimmune disorder and very few doctors have much knowledge of the disease. Dr. Pawate is up to date and informed about my disease. He spends all the time I need answering my questions and addressing my concerns. He is always looking for solutions to provide me with a better quality of life. He is a caring, wonderful doctor.
Patient | June 24, 2017
