Dr Sexton is great. She really cares for your family as a whole. Also if you need to see here the office will ge you in when you need it. Shes in gordonsville and you have the pharmacy right next door.
OMG! You gotta be kidding me!! I scheduled a yearly female exam, and the so called Dr. had to make a call to ask what to do! SERIOUSLY!! I heard her talking on the phone!! Her nurse gave me a sheet to wear instead of a gown! I asked when I made the appt if they did female exams and they said sure no problem but they obviously didnt know what they were doing. Plus they said theyd call me with the test results but they never did, I waited a month and finally called them. The receptionist said they forgot to call me. My opinion is that whole office is VERY un-professional!!

If you want drugs go to Todd Lewis. I know for a fact that he gives them to his friends. I have heard so much about the women he works for also. Really dont know for sure if its true. I could be wrong.

Honestly, she is far from being a doctor. She's a Physicians Assistant! One other person called Peter Alfano a doctor. He isn't a doctor either. Of the two, I would pick Alfano. This is coming from somebody who used to work at CGH. I'd stay away from all the docs there except Rutherford. He's probably the only legit doctor in Smith County. Then again, if you are after pain medicine then you won't find it at Rutherford's office. You'll have to go to TL, AM, or any of the PA's or FNP's for that matter. Personally, I love Tammy Collins in Lebanon. She is internal medicine. She figured out my illness without me having to go bankrupt to diagnose it.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I do like dr. Pete but don't like Carthage family practice. I had to take my kid to dr. Today, at Carthage family practice. Dr. pete was not there but another was, male Dr. My son knee is swollen really bad and all he did was feel it and said "I Think" hes got fluid builup. No exray and no certain diagnoses. I just want a doctor that gives a crap instead of just in and out in ten minutes.
Yeah, I know who you are talking about. We NEVER ask for him. If hes the only one with an opened time we wait if can. We always ask for Dr. Pete or Ann Locke. Like someone said, Heather Lambert is really good as well. She used yo be my doctor until she opened her own practice. Good luck!

The only difference between Alfano being a NP and doctors is 3 years, thats it. Hes a great NP and he cares for the family. He NEVER rushes you, he'll sit and explain whats wrong, why and how you vsn fix it. As for saying Ruthetfords office won't give meds, you haven't really paid attention. If you want meds, there is one doctor there thst hands them out almost like candy.
