Patient | December 21, 2016

I have never had anything but good experiences with Dr. Langone . He takes interest in his patients, he knows your health issues and your health history, and stays on top of all your test results and medications and he takes his time to talk with you and listen to you and answer any questions that you may have. I am 65 years old and he is one of the best if not the best Doctor I have ever been treated by. Your organization is fortunate to have people like him and I certainly hope that he is here as long as I am alive.
Patient | December 20, 2016

Dr. Langone has been my physician for 15 years, excellent, friendly, and always willing to help!
Patient | August 9, 2016

As stated earlier.....I honestly don't think I would be here today were it not for the quality of care I have received from my doctors at VUMC.
Patient | August 9, 2016

No problem. Very good.
Patient | August 1, 2016

He did what he was suppose to do.
Patient | August 1, 2016

Waited 4 hour to see Dr. Langone then he was concerned with my cholesterol not my kidney function. He was too busy educating students to listen to me and my health concerns. I felt like I wasted 10 HOURS 3 hour to drive to Vanderbilt, 4 hour wait on Dr. Langone, 3 hour drive back home with no questions answered.
Patient | July 29, 2016

I could not have a better doctor taking care of me - I'm thankful for him.
Patient | July 28, 2016

of medicine. Langone is a gem!
Patient | June 1, 2016

that I usually have to see. I understand that they are learning, but on some appts I end up going over the same issues and questions 3 times and sometimes get a different answer from each. It's can get frustrating.
Patient | May 28, 2016

Dr. Langone always spends time and gives detailed explanations to questions.
Patient | April 25, 2016

Traffic and waiting on Dt
Patient | April 1, 2016

Dr Langone is the reason I come from Maryville/Knoxville every 4 months instead of transferring to a closer physician. He is the best at his profession.
Patient | April 1, 2016

Patient | April 1, 2016

That particular day, he was running behind because he said he was having to fill in for other drs. I had appointment at Eskind Diabetes Center, he got me out about time for the other appointment, but I was late getting there, time we drove over there.
Patient | March 30, 2016

I hope I never have to change nephrologists. Dr. Langone is the best - plus he is an Alabama fan! :)
Patient | March 14, 2016

I have great confidence in Dr. Langone to deal with any post-kidney transplant issues that might arise.
Patient | March 14, 2016

Patient | March 3, 2016

I am always extremely happy with the care I receive from Dr. Anthony Langone. I've had kidney disease since day one and I greatly appreciate that he doesn't talk to me like I have no understanding of what's going on. In other medical facilities I've often been spoken down to. I NEVER feel that way when I visit him. He always shows great concern and care. I believe he is an excellent physician and wouldn't be doing as well as I am without his care.
Patient | February 16, 2016

Patient | February 11, 2016
