My son has had several surgeries but I have never taken him to one around here. All of his has been in Roanoke Knoxville Durham and Charlottesville. What kind of surgeon are you looking for?

Do Not recommend Dr. Patel, she is rude and tries to act like you are over reacting or a worrisome parent because you bring your child in when they are sick! I don't like Dr. Davis either though Ever time I have to take my children and they have had to see him he acts like I am stupid because I ask questions. I will see Dr. Davis he is a goo dr, I just don't like his manner in which he talks to the parents!!! I ULTIMATLEY PREFER DR. THOMSON... He always takes time to talk to me and always make sure I understand everything clearly before I leave and I like that! Dr. Davis does do good with other but not me... the only thing I can tell you is to take them to one and if they aren't right for you switch! I mean as a parent, you need to be happy with Pediatrician, after all they are taking care of the most percious thing in your life... YOUR CHID!

If you plan on taking your children to their pediatrician up until they turn 18, I would recommend Davis. I saw him from when I was born until I was even 19. He is an excellent doctor and has great rapport with his patients, especially as they become older and can communicate with him on their own.

my son needs a surgery to remove a cyst that he's had for quite some time. It's growing and has been growing for nearly a year. The doctors at first never mentioned it until I asked.Everyone passed it off as just a heat bump...I'm not worried about the "look" just know that there's more to it and I know he's uncomfortable.

Where is the cyst located if you don't mind me asking?

Take him to UVA! As far as the best pediatrician in the area, Davis was my pick. My daughter kept getting ear infections at 9 months old and at the time we were seeing Patel. I changed and took her to see Davis, he gave her a different antibiotic and no more ear infections. It's been over 19 years and her ears have had no more issues. Patel is a scary lady. I agree with another poster...how does she still have a license to practice medicine? Maybe as a vet but definitely not on children!

my youngens see dr davis. he is awesome. takes his time and explains everything. if you have questions he will answer, no matter how stupid you think the question might be. you can ask anything! dr patel is in and out, i cannot stand her. i will not go to her,she makes you feel like you know nothing. she has the doctor title and you are just some blue collared hill billy! but thats just me. other ppl like her, so i can only say try them all out. and stick with the one you like. dr davis always has the longest waiting time, cause he has so many ppl that like him!

Who is the better doctor at the clinic. I'm looking for a new doctor for my little girl and really would like some info on these three docs...
I think Dr Davis is the.Better Doctor.( Dr. Thomson and Dr. Patel both of them gave our child medication that wasn't needed. Both has misdiagnosed.Our child.) < ALL OF THIS, IS TRUE > If it wasn't for Dr,Davis.our child wouldn't be here today.Our child went to the ER.They called Dr Davis.He was there in no time at all.Our child was gasping for air. Dr Davis told us that our child needs to be transported to Johnson City, to help nobody here can help him.Dr Davis had me and our child flown to Johnson City. We where there in no time.

My two daughters have seen all 3 doctors and I dont like any of them. My kids see Amy. She is really good. She takes her time with my kids and they love her. She gets know them she dont just treat them and send them home.

Because in my opiniion, even though she is only a nurse practicioner, she has done more for my son then any of the "DRS". And her bedside manner is great.
