Does the town of Morristown ever wonder why Hamblen Pediatrics goes thru so many staff????
They roll in and out employess mthly. Do you ever notice that hamblen pediatrics has ads in the newspaper about every week. Especially those who can speak spanish... humm Did you know that over 80% of their patients are hispanic... humm Does Morristown ever wonder why all the HISPANICS seem to come to morristown?? Have you ever checked out how many lawsuits??? To much wrong if you ask me.. not only to the TOWN OF MORRISTOWN but to employees, ex- employees and children. I know without a doubt if the employees, ex-eployees ,and affected children would speak up ...MAYBE you could get rid of the evil that dwells within. I have never been a employee nor a patient(THANK GOD), but I have seen those doors rotate like bread.. does't take long to ruin.. Beware Morristown!!!

I agree, I can't stand this place. I knew better than to take my child there....but I did anyway. I didn't really know another option. Up until about 2 years ago I used them, and they finally pissed me off way to many times. I had at it with one of the nurses's because I was tired of being treated like I was stupid when I KNOW MY CHILD better than any other person on this earth. After that day, I immediately got my child's records and went elsewhere. A friend of mine recommended Phillip's Medical Group --- LOVE THEM, and I am so happy I made the change.

The devil is the office manager pat . She has to be the devil herself, but she looks like a Hobbit and a ugly one in fact. I know she is a bitch to work for. Plus those ole workers that has been there before christ. those are the only ones that stay, only because they are as bitchy as pat is. I know what you mean by treating the parents like their fools or something. That is a disgrace. They treat the poor kids like they dont care. Do those people even know how to smile...OHHH YEAH when they are charging you double or for something you did not have done.. Did you know that Hamblen peds see more hispanics than our "LEGAL" american children??? If you have a child in teh care of dcs... you might as well forget it..they see a hispanic before they will see a parentless child. If I had a child , I WOULD NEVR TAKE THEM THERE !!!!!

I took my child there years ago, my child is now an adult. Only went there a few times because the first time I went in with my sick infant the Dr. herself was very cold and uncaring. Needless to say I never went back and started taking my child to Knoxville Pediatrics and loved all the Dr's there. Some of them have passed away now and I do not know any of the new ones, but if I had grandchildren in this area that is where I would like for them to go.

We switched to Knoxville peds also several years ago. After one appointment which was the Dr's last appointment of the day, he went with us to the Children's Hospital lab to make sure the lab work was done that day. Imagine that. Liked them all!

I have never taken my kids to Hamblen Peds but my nephew has went. It seems like he never sees the same doctor more than once. That disturbed me. I took my kids to Dr. Swarner in Greeneville until he retired. I absolutely adored him. Now, my kids go to Phillips Medical Group and they are absolutely wonderful. My son can see a male doctor and my daughter can see a female doctor that way they are both comfortable with their doctors.

I take my 3 year old grandson to Hamblen Pediatric and have no complaints. He sees Dr. Jamison regularly. Only if Dr. Jamison isn't available have we seen anyone else and they have asked before assigning him to a doctor. I have found them to be helpful, friendly and caring. I can't call them by name, but he has seen 3 of the other doctors. Maybe those bad experiences have been from hateful and rude patients. It works both ways.

I see the uneducated have been on this downing of Hamblen Pediatrics. I assume some of you are ex-employees who were fired for various reasons. I have been a patient and parent of patients at this office. My son was born with congenital heart disease and has been treated with the BEST care in Morristown. I at least can have my own pediatrician treat me at a MORRISTOWN hospital. The new staff at the office is due to the addition of a new doctor in case you can't read the signs out front. Hamblen Peds. will see your child on the DAY the child is sick. That's rare in Morristown. They are open for every child. By the way, most patients that I see in that office are NOT of Hispanic descent. It doesn't really matter what race or ethnicity you are from. This office will see ALL children. Of course, some of you who complain probably don't want to pay your bill!! As for the comments about the "old" people in the office, you can't make a judgment unless you know those people!! Pat the office manager has a job to do; she actually does it quite well. You may choose to take your children anywhere you choose. That's why it is America and is a free country. Be thankful you have that choice. By the way, I have a teenager and a young child who receive their medical care there. There are some doctors I like more than others. I get a choice usually on who I want to see. It's a horrible place, huh? All I know is that you are missing a tremendous blessing for NOT taking your kids there!!

First let me clear one thing up I am not a employee or a ex one,but How funny for a ole employee to respond. Or maybe this is the devil in disguise pat "office mgr" herself trying to be educated..haha IF IT WAS UP TO THE STAFF YOUR ASS WOULD HAVE BEEN GONE A LONG TIME AGO. I know for a fact the staff had meetings after meeting with the docters pleading to get rid of her. I AM EDUCATED unlike yourself. That is why I choose to stand up and let MORRISTOWN COMMUNITY know about hamblen peds. Ex emplyee no, just someone who has watched from a far. But I know about your treatment to your "EX" employees. That is why you have SOOOOO MANY. Anyone in thier right mind would go elsewhere. Your docters,nurses, and staff are too agressive, talk down towards their patients,treat anyone on Tenncare like a piece of shit, and YES YOU DO AND YOU ARE known to be the biggest provider of the hispanic community (I personaly have no problem with hispanics)but it is the americans that get left behind. Dr w himself treats Hispanics with more respect than his own color. The NEW STAFF is not because of the new doc, it is because they fired their lab (oopps) a non qualified nurse I mean because she wore gray shoes one day.. Now they need a MLT and NURSE because that one nurse done TWO jobs.(I heard that one thru the grape vine) But with any staff their that is the way you are treated (like a piece of shit),,, Plus how dare you laugh and smile..That I heard is a big NO NO.. that means you are not working.. SHUFFLE THEM in LIKE LITTLE CATTLE. I have heard of numerous things that has went on their that makes me sick to my stomach. People dont just complain because they have a "BILL", they complain because it is THEIR RIGHT TO!!! TO THE COMMUNITY OF MORRISTOWN I REALLY WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT HOW "EDUCATED PARENT" CAME ACROSS... THIS SAME TYPE OF BITTER AND COLD HEARTEDNESS IS THE SAME THAT YOU INTRUST YOUR CHILDREN TO. Really, how many bad complaints have you heard about the other pediatrician in morristown????? Frankly NONE , just the same ole shit about HAMBLEN PEDS.. MORRISTOWN PLEASE BEWARE OF THE EVIL THAT LURKES AT HAMBLEN PEDS AND GO ELSEWHERE....

To respond to some of your comments:

I have been elsewhere, I made the mistake of moving my child from there when she was 3 to a closer Dr. BIG MISTAKE! She would be sick and they would be like "we can work her in tommorrow or the day after". With a child you sometimes can't wait. Needless to say I moved her back quickly.

They treat people on Tenncare like shit and prefer hispanics which is why they see more of them. That statement contradicts itself immensely, as most hispanics are on Tenncare.(duh)

I have had many in thier office laugh and smile especially Renee. There are others but I can't recall their names right now.

I have been going there almost 14 year and have 2 children seen there. There are some doctors I like better than others but would not care to see any of them if need be. I don't know why you are so upset if you are not a patient, parent, employee or ex-employee. Almost all of what you said is "I heard" well....you know what they say about that. lol

Let me tell you...I do not work there, nor am I old!!! I am a teacher, for goodness' sake!! You obviously have issues and mental problems. I am NOT Pat or any other employee of that office. Get a life!!! You obviously can't spell, use correct grammar, nor do you even know what you are talking about. If you want to compare educations, let's do that. I have a Master's degree. What about you? I also graduated with a 4.0 GPA when I received that degree. I am not a bitter, cold hearted person. I just know the FACTS before I rant and rave about something. I at least know whether something is true before I say it!!!

I go to Hamblen Peds I so far we have been happy with them. Some of the Doctor's I like better than others but that is anywhere you go... As long as they treat my son good and nice and try to help me with a sickness he may have, thats all they can do. And if they don't know whats wrong with a child they will send them to Knoxville. So good luck Ham. Peds we love you!!!!!!

As I stated in an earlier post my child is now an adult. I worked in the same buiding where H.P. used to be years ago. Alot of the people I worked with at that time had small children including myself. I worked in the lab next door. I saw a lot of parents back then upset with these same Dr's.

I am glad some of you are happy going there but my guess is if you had ever had an issue with them your tune would change. They have always had a lot of staff turn over. That right there says something.

For "Educated Parent" just because you have a Master's degree does not make you an authority on anything. I would hope you graduated with a 4.0 in graduate school because 99.9% of graduate students do graduate with a 4.0.

I'm not saying I'm an authority. I was commenting on "healthcare" and how it was referred that I was uneducated. Many places have high turnovers. The lab you worked at still has a high turnover rate. I have had issues with some of the doctors at H.P. However, my children have still received quality care. I just can't believe this keeps going on. All I know is that some facts have not been stated; most of what one person has said is not true. If I had a problem with the doctor's office, I would take it there, not to a website that allows anything and everything to be published on it. Plus, I have a right to defend the office as you do to bash it. That's all I meant on the "educated" part. I have the right to defend my comments like you defend yours.

All I can say is my nephew age 8 then is dead now because he was being treated for an ear infection for two weeks,after transfering him to Childrens hospital died within 24 hours from aspiration pneumonia.I only wished they had x-rayed him earlier.maybe the foreign object that was lodged in his lungs could have been retreived and save his life.I am a nurse and I know mistakes are made.myself I research doctors that I use.

You must have a relative who works for HP's or you wouldn't be on defensive side. If you don't like what you read on this forum don't come here. I am not out to argue with people. I just want to state my opinion and just because I do that does not indicate I am a bad person or in the wrong.

The lab I worked for was sold out a very long time ago. I do know when I was there it was owned and ran by a great Dr. Whatever issues you have had I would know nothing about since it has been many years and I worked for someone else.

Some folks travel to Knoxville because of hospital options, as opposed to Doc concerns. In fact, I have been pleased with local docs, but the hospital situation is a different story. Frankly, it's a pain to drive to Knox just because of hospital privileges. Morristown screwed up when they did not merge with St. Mary's.
