Dr. Theobald was excellent!
Patient | December 1, 2016

Dr Theobald did not care for my health issues, she did not even examine the area that was hurting, did not even look at it - her proposal was to try different medications and see maybe one of them would help. What kind of doctor puts her patients on a guinea pig trial for different medications with side effects without examining the problem first and figuring out the root cause??? Very disappointed, will not go back.

I chose my insurance based on being able to have this provider as my PCP and to be able to receive services at Vanderbilt Hospital vs. other choices in Nashville

Patient | February 11, 2016

Good first visit; we'll see over time.
Patient | February 11, 2016
