I have complete confidence in Alison Barlow's advice and service of care. She does not partake in unnecessary services.

I have been seeing Allison Barlow for many years and I wouldn't think of changing NPs for my annual well-woman check ups. She's great.

Alison Barlow is amazing! I would recommend her in a second. I travel from Atlanta, GA because of the time & care she takes with me! I would follow her anywhere!
Patient | June 25, 2018

She went beyond her scope to assist me in obtaining/scheduling my next appointment to coincide with my ride-share in order to avoid frequent travel. We live 4 hours away from Nashville and due to health issues must make it a two day trip.

She was better than "very good," she was great! I can't say enough good things about her. Very gentle and explained every step of what she was doing and what was coming next (what to expect). Highly recommended!

Dr. Barlow seemed very rushed. She didn't fully answer my questions and concerns about needing to set up my first annual mammogram and the steps I would need to take as I turn 40 next year. When I finally got her to talk about it, she spoke quickly. I wanted to know if I was going to be in good hands as it'll be my 2nd mammogram in my life and the first was performed at another facility. Dr. Barlow didn't tell me when she was going to begin my Well Woman exam and she usually does so I'm ready. I'm used to her saying where she's going to go, if I may feel a little pressure, does something hurt (which nothing does but always asked), she didn't explain if this year was the year to have a PAP smear and if the results would be in my patient portal or coming to me in my mailbox by US mail, I have these exams annually like clock work but when I'm not told what's going on during the exam and which exams have PAP smears and which don't and when will be my next or if there is something new that is required to be tested for due to my age that would be nice to know as well. What all was done other than poking and prodding?

I keep coming back because of how great Allison has been over the years!

Alison Barlow makes what is otherwise a very uncomfortable experience, very very comfortable. I recommend her to all of my friends that are looking for GYN care. I have been seeing her now for almost 5 years and I have never once left her office without her exceeding my expectations. She is truly amazing and cares about her patients. She makes me feel like i am her only patient of the day. I never mind going to the GYN anymore because she makes it so comfortable, always listens intently to every one of my concerns. I trust her wholeheartedly!
