Dr. Liddle is an exceptional doctor. He is extremely knowledgeable and also very empathetic.
Patient | October 23, 2018

He was very personable and made you confident that you would receive the best care possible.
Patient | October 16, 2018

Dr. Liddle listened carefully and helped my knee feel better! I saw a different VUMC provider for the SAME problems approximately 10 yrs. ago - THAT provider told me nothing was wrong. Dr. Liddle listened, made the proper diagnosis and gave me a steroid injection. I felt much better.

Mama sent him to both Medical and Charm School!
Patient | September 24, 2018

I have recommended Dr. Liddle to all of my colleagues. He is an exceptionally good doctor who is able to listen and talk to patients in ways that demonstrate both his knowledge of his field and his concern for their health.
Patient | September 24, 2018

I was uncomfortable in the boot. He took the time to come back & reassure me that my foot would be okay. Love that it didn't seem to annoy him.
Patient | September 11, 2018

He diagnosed my problem (foot pain) quickly and recommended phys. therapy.
Patient | September 11, 2018

Dr. Liddle was truly fantastic. First orthopedic/broken bone experience. He had a wonderful way of explaining and putting us at ease.
Patient | September 11, 2018

Dr. Liddle was good.
Patient | September 5, 2018

Dr. Liddle really does care about me as a person.
Patient | June 29, 2018

Dr. Liddle is the most compassionate and gives the clearest and most thorough description of what he believes to be the cause of my problems and best treatments of any of the numerous Vanderbilt physicians I have seen. He listens carefully and replies in clear, concise terms that are understandable and is open to and answers any questions I have. His genuine caring qualities are unfortunately rare in today's healthcare environment.
Patient | April 23, 2018

I would not hesitate to use Dr. Liddle again.
Patient | April 18, 2018

Has provided excellent care, has positive attitude and has referred to providers who can provide other needed are.
Patient | April 18, 2018

coming back in 3 weeks or so and hopefully, we will have a better experience!
Patient | April 10, 2018

Dr. Liddle is the best.
Patient | April 10, 2018

What was missing was human compassion. I felt like I was rushed through.
Patient | March 26, 2018

Dr. Liddle was running late & I was his last patient. He spent a lot of time with me explaining my condition & answering questions. This is one of the best providers I have ever encountered.
Patient | January 6, 2018

outstanding clinician
Patient | December 12, 2017

David Liddle took all the time I needed and was very clear. He does a great job
Patient | December 9, 2017

Dr. Liddle kept looking at his watch when I was asking or trying to explain something to him. He also seemed more concerned about my shoulder then my ankle. My ankle was what really required more care but he said he did not know what to do about it.
Patient | December 5, 2017

Dr. Liddle: Professional, kind, compassionate, knowledgeable.
Patient | November 20, 2017

Dr. is good but wait times are unprofessionally long (both to get an appt.) & to be seen during appt. 2.5 hrs. for encounter is way too long.
