Dr. Serafin is a wonderful provider, for me. He reviews my meds and my history before I arrive. We sit down together and discuss any issues that may have come up since my last visit; he goes over everything with me. He is very thorough and considerate. He is also very encouraging. I trust that he truly CARES for me and is well informed and well able to pass on that information to me in a way that I understand.

Patient | August 16, 2016

Dr. Serafin saved my life in October of 2014, when he detected a small, but un-usual heart sound that turned out to be a fault aortic valve. He immediately directed me to specialists and needed care. He has always been attentive and thorough in his approach in providing for my care needs. I have recommended him and hope that he never retires.

From my very 1st visit to my very recent I 'have always had good experiences (excellent)!
Patient | March 30, 2016

Dr. Serafin is an excellent doctor and compassionate person who does not play ego games. He has always been more than available to listen to my questions and concerns. I always had confidence in him and he saved my life last winter when he discovered a heart valve problem that very well would have ended my life. I had excellent treatment in the Vanderbilt system, but none better than Dr. Serafin.
Patient | March 15, 2016
