I had written down several issues on the paper registration; by the time Dr. Netherton came into the room, I'd forgotten my questions (nerves and distractions). Although she had the paper in front of her... she didn't address the issues on the page; 1 was important... and now I still don't have an answer.

Service is not very personalized; feel like a "number" rather than patient.
Patient | June 21, 2018

Dr. Netherton is a soft-spoken person but she does not come across as warm or genuine to me. She makes me feel like she's talking down to me - like I'm 5 years old. During my exam, she was rough and it was very uncomfortable but she didn't acknowledge that at all. It was the most uncomfortable it's ever been and I wondered why she was so rough. Her bedside manner is not warm or sincere to me at all. #6. None needed. #10. Can't say.

I have recommended Dr. Netherton to other girl friends. She is professional and I have great respect for her as I have been coming to her for years. Thank you.

Dr. Netherton is a gem - I would recommend her to anyone. She is very thorough and spends time with you and truly cares. She is also very kind and you never feel rushed.

I have seen this provider for number of years and have absolutely no problems with her or her staff

Routine, no problems, but always open to discussion.

Dr Netherton is AMMAZING
Patient | December 8, 2017

Easy to talk with.
Patient | September 27, 2017

provider seems more interested in getting me to try procedures instead of educating me on my issues and letting nature take its course and seems less interested in yearly checkups since Vanderbilt bought them out because now my yearly has been extended to every 5 years now since Vanderbilt took over.
Patient | September 26, 2017

I really didn't have any problem so it was routine.
Patient | September 25, 2017

Dr Netherton is a wonderful gyn. She's very caring and so gentle she puts you at ease.
Patient | September 25, 2017

Excellent physician - will be back if needed and have recommended her already.
Patient | September 22, 2017

They got me in before my appointment and took excellent care of me.
Patient | August 29, 2017

Dr. Netherton is always so friendly.

Dr. Netherton is a knowledgeable, caring doctor.
Patient | August 1, 2017

I've recommended Dr. Netherton to many of my friends.
Patient | July 27, 2017

I feel fortunate to have Dr. Netherton as my provider-she is the BEST.
Patient | July 26, 2017

I usually have other questions, general "future planning" questions I want to discuss since I am facing menopause, but I always feel like she is ready to move on to the next person. I realize this probably conflicts with any complaints patients may have about wait times, but this office has really improved their efficiency over the past 20 years. I think she should just be more encouraging to patients to see if they have any other issues they want to discuss other than the reason they are there that day.
Patient | July 24, 2017

Dr. N is always friendly, inquisitive and thorough, I've recommended her many times.
Patient | July 20, 2017

Visit was for yearly gyn exam, and everything went very well.
Patient | July 10, 2017

Dr. Netherton is awesome! She was recommended to me and I continue to recommend her to others!
Patient | July 10, 2017

I had never met Dr. Netherton and was worried about her doing my procedure since Dr. Woodall was ill. I couldn't have had a better experience. She had clearly looked through my chart before my visit, was very kind, explained everything during the procedure and what she was doing. Afterwards, she showed me exactly what was happeining and what she had found using diagrams. She then called me two days later to give me the results herself. I highly recommend her! She is a wonderful doctor who truly cares about her patients and is very knowledgable in her field.
