Seemed very rushed. He was pleasant but in a hurry.
Patient | September 20, 2018

case worker presence enabled physician orders to be given directly to him; would've appreciated seeing/knowing details of those orders at that time as this would've been more helpful to me with anticipating, asking questions, having input and making decisions

I could have used a hand-out stating and describing the diagnosis.

Great experience. Answered all questions.
Patient | January 15, 2018

Very little time was spent with the provider during the visit. I already knew I had a broken ankle because I had visited urgent care the weekend before. All he did was tell me he wanted me to wear a boot but I was not given additional care guidance. I ended up searching on Google to get information on how to care for my ankle. The visit was very short, less than 10 minutes with the provider. I asked questions but he answered very briefly and then left. Fortunately I have a client that's a healthcare provider with multiple nurses and physical therapists. They provided much better care guidance than I received from anyone at Vanderbilt. I was very disappointed with the lack of service and medical care.
Patient | December 12, 2017

Dr. Rummo is a wonderful human being and physician. Actually we enjoy one another.
Patient | October 17, 2017

Dr. Rummo was highly recommended as an orthopedist. I feel very fortunate to have him as my doctor. Not only is he an expert in his field, he has very good communication skills and explained the initial problem clearly and patiently. Which created _____ and a this time patient relationship for the last nearly 3 months. Dr. Rummo is a good listener, expresses care & empathy & confidence.
Patient | October 2, 2017

Polite & concise!
