Dr. Anna Broome Gilbert has the name of being an excellent doctor. She is in the new medical building, on the same side as the hospital. I do not know if she is accepting new patients. I have a good friend who used Dr. Pack for a while, and she was NOT happy with her. I have also heard people say they do not like Dr. Shipley.

I could not disagree more. She is a nice person, but NOT a good doctor.

Sorry for the lack of clarity, I was referring to Dr. Broome Gilbert.

Dr. May is a health department doctor, and is the staff doctor at Pine Ridge Nursing Home. I have heard he is not the greatest.

A good doctor who really cares is hard to come by nowdays. All that they really care about is money! Can someone tell me of ONE doctor who really cares about their patients? I really dont expect a long list of replies because there isn't any! As for Doctor Andrew May, he is never available to the few patients he has left...so go else where if you really need a doctor!!

Terri, I'm sorry you have heard that about ASM. When my ear was killing me, he met me at his office at 3:30pm on a Sunday afternoon, and I wasn't even one of his regular patients! No other doctor I know would do that. Plus, he still makes housecalls on his elderly,dying patients. Also, he sees his nursing home patients EVERY day, not once a week like the other nursing home doctors. He's not the greatest? Sounds pretty great to me!

Well, I thought HelloWorld requested "No Dr bashing" at the beginning of this topic. In my opinion, he shouldn't have to request that. Like my grandma always said, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." In other words, be kind to one another!

Also,in my life experiences (and I'm pretty old.), when people bash others it is usually because they are jealous of that person in one capacity or another whether it is unconsciously or consciously. For those who bash others, I am sure there is no need to do that. I believe you have a wonderful quality or talent that you can be proud of and use toward the greater good, instead of using your time to bash others. Be sweet and kind to each other. We aren't in this world very long as it is. Have a nice day everyone and smile to a stranger today:)

You must be a whiney TennCare patient who wanted pain pills for your EARACHE. TENNCARE patients are all ASM has left. By the way, he does not go to Pine Ridge Nursing Home every day. I know this because my MIL is there. He is a health department doctor also. From what I know he is just borderline. There are many doctors out there who are so MUCH better. The truth is the truth. Not bashing!

I should have known better. There isn't a thread on Eliz. Topix that doesn't eventually start gosisp and arguing.

I don't understand how saying a doctor treated someone for an earache on off hours could lead to the assumption that someone is on TnCare and they are trying to get pills?

And is a health dept doctor a bad thing? I haven't lived here very long, but where I'm from, to be a dr in a health dept, school, etc, you might as well be a volunteer, you get paid so little.

Actually I'm not TennCare,I have insurance through the Eliz School System. I'm Sorry I meant to say that he goes to Pine Ridge Mon- Fri, which I know as a fact, also. If you are not happy with your MIL's care, you are welcome to take her somewhere else. Before ASM's leave of absence from his private practice, he was booked two months in advance consistently - that's why it was hard to get in to see him (I know this cause I have a friend who works in the office) I'm sorry you have had a bad experience, but I know for a fact he has had other job offers,even from Nashville. He is a top notch doctor who you can even call at home or even drop by his house if you have a problem. Sorry for your experience, but I know of many others who have had good experiences with him. But, it's like someone told me, "no matter what you do, haters are going to hate." Have a good day. I will not argue with you.:)

If you are willing to drive to johnson city then I can recommend a very good doctor. Dr Robert Connell, he's with Wellmont Medical Associates but located in jc. His office is at 316 marketplace blvd and its right beside lifestyles fitness center. I refuse to see a dr associated with msha so when I found him in jc and he's thru wellmont I thought I wld give him a try and I'm very happy with him. He is knowledgable, takes time with each patient, will listen to any concern u have, and is extremely thorough. He doesn't rush thru his patients like they are only a number for money and the office staff are very friendly and pretty quick to get things done when u call to request anything. I think you would really like him. There is also a female dr in that office but I don't know anything about her. In case u r interested their phone is 4 three three 6 three 7 zero.

You are not going to find a quality doctor at a nursing home, or at a health department. One is as good (or bad) as the other. Good doctors DO NOT leave a lucrative practice to contract with a nursing home, or to work at a health department. I do not believe ASM had a job offer in Nashville, as a medical doctor. I believe he may have been asked to be on a health department board.

Dr. Todd Whitaker in Unicoi - great doctor and really cares about his patients. I started going to him when he was at medical care and when he moved to unicoi to start his own practice, I followed him there. He's great!

Dr Whitaker does not own his practice. He works for the Unicoi County Hospital. They pay him a salary.

Well that's fine to. I really don't care who or how he gets paid. I guess he's not the dr. for everyone but I like him and he's a really compassionate dr.
