Does anyone know what happen without fabricating the story based on your personal opinion?

Dr. Phelps is getting older. He has been moving at a fast pace for many years, and he is slowing down a bit to focus on his own health. I will not speculate as to what health issues he is facing, nor will I guess. That is just what I was told by the folks in his office. The office is currently searching for another physician to keep the practice going, but it will be a while, if at all, before Dr. Phelps starts practicing again.

I won't bad mouth Dr. Phelps completely but he should just retire. I took my daughter there and they weighed her, took a throat culture and sent us on our way. He never even looked at her, they never took any vitals in triage, or asked her any questons. He acted like he was too busy and tired to do anything. I was very disappointed and changed Doctors that day to find out my 12 yr old had strep throat, swollen glands and a fever.
I'm sorry that he's not feeling well and I think the best thing he could do is to quit practicing and concentrate on his own health. Hope he has a good doctor.

my dads roommate at oakwood had phelps and in the 9 months he was there the dr never came in once he just spoke to the nurses on the phone. one weekend he was the dr on call and the lady in the next room was having problems and he didnt come then either her family was very upset when the nurse told them he wasnt coming and something about she was old and going to die soon anyway the daughter and son were so mad they were yelling in the hall and they called an ambulance and when she came back she was better and then went home with her girl a couple weeks maybe a month later so much for his diagnosis of she was old and going to die

We ought to be happy we have/had a permanent doctor in Lewisburg. What does Lewisburg really have to offer a qualified doctor? With the rash of smokers, drunks, fighters and drug addicts here in this small town, it would tend to overwhelm any doctor.

Dr Phelps has always been good to us but we chose to swap doctors because we felt he was getting up in the years and not on the top of his game and was clearly spread too thin. We too wish him the best.

The people here ought to appreciate what he has done in the past, something other doctors obviously refused to do.

I received a letter from my insurance out of the blue stating they will no longer pay his office for my visits and switched me to some no name person that I have never heard of and have no clue where he is, needless to say I will be traveling to Columbia to a real doctor not some dumbass who just wants to prescribe pills instead of treat the true problem like Phelps did to me

Dr. Phelps was a unique person, yes. And some did think he was a little out of his mind, but you know what, that's what made Dr. Phelps, Dr. Phelps. He is/was a good physician who served a community in need of healthcare. He kept alot of us from having to drive to Columbia or Franklin.

I wish him the best in which ever direction he takes. And if he is in a Looney Bin, I bet he is the life of the party.

I think they need to get rid of that loud mouth Angie woman, all she ever does is wine about how much in debt she is and her drunk of a husband.

If you need a Doctor don't look here. Phelps is a genius compared to the idiot Nash.
Naked really bad

Doctors NEED care more than we will ever know. Think of taking care of yourself and another compared to Dr. Phelps giving way too much of himself to helping his patients. Even he can become burnout. Rest is very important. Winter weather isn't good for his body.
His style as another can be compared but it is his health. We all can learn for him. How many mom's give way too much and then way too much on a spouse's health while waiting for later to care for themselves, fully again?
Today's a great day to be alive.
Being naked on the square is really bad for your health in the winter too. I can get you sent to the looney bin I hear.
dont look now

Dr. Phelphs is a unique individual, I do believe his recent problems are due to being overworked and overstressed.
Dr. Nash was unable to correctly diagnose me, instead of being honest, he refused to see me and wrote a nasty letter in my chart, claiming I was making up my unusual symptoms.
Dr. Phelphs was one of the few doctors willing to take me as a patient, and the only one who treated me like a human.
I now have been diagnosed with a rare disorder.
Dr. Nash thinks he's God.
I'll take a doctor that can admit he's human any day.

Dr. Phelps, you are in my prayers, whether you continue to practice, or decide it is time to retire.
I will always remember the kindness you showed me.

I have to say that since he is not in his office and is no longer seeing patients, my insurance basically kicked me out of his office, but on a very good note I found an awesome doctor in Columbia (Right Care) and now I have the CORRECT medication instead of some stupid crap he tried to give me.

Dr. Phelps is a church going man. A Christian church. Karma is not Christian, it is Hinduism and Buddhism. I don't think Dr. Phelps would agree with your statement or your cussing. I think he would say, "just forgive his ignorance". And you say you know Dr. Phelps? Hmmmm... So do I.
