He's the best dr. I hv!
Patient | November 4, 2017

Dr. Douglas has one of the best bedside manners I have ever seen. He came in and sat down with me for over an hour going over all my tests results that had been previously done. Bloodwork, X-rays, MRI's it was important to him to get all the facts of the long road I had been down. He certainly wasn't ready to jump up and say "Oh" you have this......which of course I was hoping for but, he assured me he would do everything in his power to get me help and I believed him. He was caring, articulate, smart and there was no doubt to me why my GP, Bobby White referred me to him. once I had my appoint. i emailed him and he himself emailed me back within a couple hours. Impressive. I am looking forward to my second appoint. The medication he has put me on has brought me relief to the pain so I am extremely hopeful we are on tn right track. In his email he made the comment to me that he felt that I was treatable, so now I had hope with is something I hadn't had from the beginning......

I have already recommended him to others.

Patient | October 6, 2017

only 2nd visit & seem to be attacking root cause vs symptoms. Stayed with original Ned's until deep dive so other than side effects, not a lot of meds discussion. Provider hopes to curb current meds-great!
Patient | September 25, 2017

Dr. Douglas was genuinely excited about my excellent prognosis.
Patient | September 22, 2017

Patient | September 21, 2017

In my opinion, Dr. Douglas is one of the finest doctors I have ever met. In addition to his knowledge,treatment plan and goal setting, communication skills, professionalism, compassion and highly skilled at motivation, I leave his office feeling happy (no matter how physically bad I might feel), emotionally positive and ready to tackle the world to improve my health and overall happiness. I believe he really cares about me and improving my health and wants me to work along side him to meet our goals. Highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
Patient | September 10, 2017

They are very care about my problem.
Patient | August 31, 2017

dr Douglas was excellent. and as I work with Drs on a daily basis, I can say that not all providers are as courteous or concerned for their patient's needs or thoughts, or as easily engaging. I'd definitely see Dr Douglas again and I would certainly recommend him to friends and family.
Patient | August 28, 2017

Dr. Douglas talked most of the time about the tv show "Naked and Afraid " and tried to tie that in to my need to lose weight. I was offended by these comments and saw no correlation between the people on this show and my situation.
Patient | August 28, 2017

I started with Dr Douglas in 2005 when he was with the Consultant Group in the St Thomas complex and have been completely comfortable with his treatment of my RA through the years. It is rare to find a doctor who listens.... explains in laymans terms so I can understand...shows genuine concern for my overall health which affects RA. We need more doctors in every field with his dedication.
Patient | August 20, 2017

Dr. Douglas is an excellent physician. He takes the time to thoroughly address any questions or concerns I have.

Dr. Glenn Douglas is one of the best doctors I have ever had.

Love Dr. Douglas. But the office registration staff and Vandy bureaucracy are very poor. I would not recommend Vandy Rheumatology for this reason.

Dr. Douglas is the absolute best person and doctor. He has the ability to make a person feel that they are the most important person. He cares holistically about me - not just about my RA.

Patient | November 22, 2016

Dr. Douglas was very kind and helpful. He gave me info I needed and was very good in performing procedures. I have given his name to my primary care provider for referrals he may want to make to a rheumatologist.
Patient | November 17, 2016

I did not have any tests or procedures. Dr. Douglas takes the time to know his patients and their concerns. He is informative and he cares. I wish all of my doctors, dentist, or anyone I had to deal with regarding something important (such as my health) was like Dr. Douglas. You don't find many doctors who will take the time to properly understand your situation/illness and listen. Too often doctors chuck pills and tests at patients. Not Dr. Douglas. He listens. He is knowledgeable. He cares and he wants you to get/feel better.
Patient | November 14, 2016
