She is not a quack! I have been seeing her as long as she's been in Dyersburg. She is very nice and always makes time to talk to patients even over the phone. She closes her office at two thirty every day so she can be with her children when they are out of school. She even closes on all school holidays for the very same reason. And narcotics? The strongest prescription she would have wrote this man would have been tramadol which is actually considered a narcotic. Unless she had proof of a serious condition. I have been in her office many times and heard her explaining to people on the phone or in person how if all they wanted were pain pills they would have to find a new doctor because she was not a pill doctor. If someone has serious problems she will refer them to another doctor or a pain clinic if necessary. You go in saying your nerves are shot and she will tell you to make an appointment at Pathways. And anytime I have ever complained of anything she runs tests til she finds the cause. As for refills she does not write prescriptions with refills. Ever. You have to go in every single month for blood pressure medication antibiotics any kind of medication. She will take your blood pressure and pulse and weigh you like all doctors. And then ask you how you are feeling and if anything new is going on. Like all doctors. And if you complain of something she will then examine the Heck out of you til she can tell you why. I have a slew of medical conditions and have been treated by many doctors,specialists and otherwise,through the years. And I can say, with some confidence, they have never "examined" me any different. Just because a doctor is not touching you does not mean they're not "examining" you. I have every confidence in her abilities and will continue to see her unless told I cannot. Shame on anybody believing anything just because it's in our joke of a "news"paper or just because our joke of a police department says so! And shame on all of you naysayers who are convicting this woman in the eyes of the public when I could've sworn our civil rights allow us to be innocent until proven guilty instead of the other damn way around!!

THERE IS A DENTIST ALSO THAT PRESCRIBES DRUGS, LIKE THOSE.

not all dentist prescribes the hydros and valiums and those drugs , dentist use to say take 2 asprins and, use salt water after so many hours, not a months supply of hydros and valiums. etc. dyer county is full of them.

they even tell people what doctors to get the drugs from in other counties , when they can't prescribe them any more.

Yeah you can't be talking about the same woman! This woman is as big a quack as I've ever seen! Believe me. My wife went to her and so did my daughter. It's too long to go into all of it but she is a 100% certified QUACK and rude as a doctor as I've ever seen! She deserves to be locked up for all of the crap she's done!

BOTTOM LINE:
Just because a doctor gives YOU pain pills, YOU don't have to take them.....
If YOUR life is so bad and YOU want to escape it using pain pills, seek some help...YOU have a problem.
If YOU don't want to seek help for YOUR self, then just turn the WHOLE bottle up and end it, because YOU are nothing but a drain on our society...
YOU must fix YOUR self.....ok, YOU weak minded IDIOT...
ok, now I feel better after venting...

DOCTORS AND NURSES, before writing the prescriptions need to tell patients what they are writing the prescriptions for and why!

HOW MANY PRESCRIPTIONS HAVE YOU GOT FILLED THAT YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE DOCTOR WROTE. DOCTORS THINK BECAUSE SO MANY ARE ON DRUGS , ESPECIALLY DRUGS THAT ARE KILLING PEOPLE, THAT EVERY ONE WANTS THOSE DRUGS. SINCE SO MANY ARE NOTHING BUT DOPE HEADS AND DRUNKS AND PERVERTS THEIR SELF.

I HAVE LEARNED THAT DOCTORS AND NURSES HERE IN DYER COUNTY , DO NOT LIKE QUESTIONS, THEY THINK DRUGS WILL CURE ALL THINGS AND KILL YOU TOO, HOPEFULLY KILL YOU BEFORE TRUTH IS TOLD OF HOW EVIL SOME ARE.

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM IF YOU ASK QUESTIONS THAT THEY SAY YOU NEED TO GET BACK ON THE MERRY GO ROUND OF DRUGS THAT A DAMN SORRY PSYCHIATRIST , AND MEDICAL>> LOVE, TO COVER THEIR EVIL COLLEAGUES WHEN SOMEONE DIES BECAUSE OF THEIR EVIL DRUG PUSHING EVIL WAYS.

SOME UNGODLY WOULD PREFER YOU DIE, SO THEY CAN LIE , TO COVER UP, FOR MURDER.

YOU ARE THE IDIOT, PEOPLE LEARN THE HARD WAY SOMETIMES NOT TO TRUST DAMN DOPE HEADED DRUNK PERVERTED DOCTORS AND NURSES. YOU NEED THEIR DAMN DRUGS, TO EVEN SAY WHAT YOU SAID!

JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS A COLLEGE DEGREE DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE NOT EVIL , AS WE HAVE KNOWN GO INTO THE WRONG PROFESSION FOR EVIL PURPOSE , NO GOOD IN THEM AT ALL, AND TRUTH EITHER!

LIKE YOU> WHEN YOU WANT RELIEF TAKE AN ALKA SELTZER, PLOP , PLOP, FIZZ , FIZZ OH WHAT A RELIEF IT IS. THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER TOO!

The woman is a quack.Anyone who goes to her doesn't need to complain when they wind up in a worse shape than when they started with her.She got into trouble in the last state she worked in.That's why she moved here.Don't believe me,look it up.And she is unsanitary.Truth!
