my experience was excellent
Patient | October 18, 2018

the Dr was awesome. He explained all the alternatives and procedures and timeline. He was kind enough and interested enough in my welfare ( I'm a veteran) to contact someone at the VA on my behalf. Even though I live an hour and a half from Vandy I was very impressed by everyone and will not hesitate to contact them for any health issues.
