Labrador, Daniel Jr,MD
My PCP had told me I had several moles on my back that needed to be examined/removed. I remembered Dr Labrador from many years ago and wondered if he was still in practice. I located his office and called to make an appointment. He saw me the day after I was told by my PCP to have the suspicious moles checked. Dr Labrador examined me and agreed that the moles should be removed and biopsied. He asked me when I wanted to have the procedure done. I told him, "As soon as possible". He instructed his nurse to bring his instruments to the room. Within 15min he was finished. He sent the tissue off for biopsy and followed up with me regularly. Later I showed him an area on my ear where I had a cancer removed by another Dr. The cancer had reoccurred. Dr Labrador asked me when I wanted to take care of it. Again, I told him ASAP. He acted immediately that morning and removed the cancer for biopsy, then repaired my ear to a much better appearance than the other Dr. When I asked him how he made it look so much better, he explained that he is a plastic surgeon and the other Dr is a dermatologist. I was so glad that Dr Labrador took immediate action each time and did not have me wait days, weeks, or a month like some other physicians do.I give him my highest recommendation!

Grace Clinic-Dr Frank Calhoun
This was my first visit to this Doctor as a new patient. The office staff was very nice as was Dr Calhoun. The big concern I have is that I spent an extensive amount of time speaking with a nurse who took my history very maticulously. What disturbs me is this....I have only a portion of my stomach left and no esophagus due to an ilneess some years ago. I cannot take NSAIDS as the potential to burn a hole in what is left of my stomach is very possible. I was told NOT to use them by the doctors who performed my surgery . As I was seeing this doctor for a knee injury he examined me and then explained quite well what the issue was.........and then said "we will precscribe you some Celebrex for the inflamation". Celebrex is an NSAID!!!!~ DO doctors even READ a persons history anymore?? We are trusting these "professionals" to help us but this guy didn't even read my records!!! I mean RWTF!!!Needless to say I wont be back as the doctor cannot be trusted to act in a professional manner and do his job correctly.

Walk-In Clinic Chattanooga
I and my family have been treated by Dr. Orme numerous times since he opened his practice. We have found Dr. Orme to be an extremely experienced physician who provides comprehensive treatment. Dr. Orme is also one of the most caring and personable individuals that I have ever met.. When you visit, it is immediately evident that he places the patient’s welfare above all else. It is very difficult to find a doctor who possesses all of these qualities in this day and time.I feel that Dr. Orme provides an extremely valuable community service to this area. Even if you live outside the East Brainerd area, it is definitely worth the travel time to visit his practice.

They are nice, understanding, patient, sweet, kind, & extremely helpful. Walk-ins, which I was, was easy to do & be seen in a timely manner. The office & rooms were clean & bathrooms were clean & stocked. The docs & nurses were great, they listened & understood me & helped me with any questions I had, they told me what if anything they were gonna do or may have to do. I've had to go to many different doctors & this was one fo the best ones ever, I didn't feel like I was just another person to make them money, I could tellthey cared about people & wanted to help them get better, feel better & stay better.

Sentef, Joseph Jr MD
Very courteous staff who worked to get us in earlier than our scheduled appointment since we arrived early. We actually drove 3 hours from Georgia for this appointment. Dr. Sentef spent over an hour with my husband asking and answering questions about his medical history. If you have a connective tissues disease, such as Rheumatoid arthritis, this is your Dr. He is a brilliant man with a vested interest in curing disease, not just treating symptoms. He is dedicated to restoring health verses helping one to be functionally ill. Very impressed with our first visit.

Dr. Charapada is a great doctor but a little short with bedside manner. He will ask a question but before you complete the question he cuts you off.He has changed since I first show him 4 or 5 yrs ago. My daughter went to him and was so mad she said that was her first and last appt. with him.She got mad again today as he acted very short and cold. We both realize doctors have bad days but they do not need to realize that patient is sick needing a little kindness. I would refer him to others but tell them how his attitude can be at times.

Grace Clinic-Dr Frank Calhoun
I was amazed of the very nice Christian atmosphere at this physician's office. It is not very often that you find Christian reading materials and Christian values in a doctors office. His ministry to help those without insurance and financial struggles is an amazing ministry. Didn't get to meet Dr. Calhoun, but the nurse practitioner was very knowledgeable and very thorough. They don't treat you differently just because you are uninsured. I was very impressed.

This is a great place, the staff & docs, nurses etc are all kind, caring & friendly. They all put me at ease when I got there & the fact I had no insurance was ok b/c it was less than most dr offices. As a walk in I thought I would have to wait forever, it wasn't a long wait & the NP, Laurie, listened to what I said & cared. This is really a great place & more caring people & places like this are needed.

Love Dr. Calhoun and also he is an honest and caring person. He does alot of free services for the poor -in ofc. - and he deserves praise. In 55+ yrs. I have never seen any Dr.s Ofc. (And I have been to many between me my immed. family) that has a sign in the examine rooms that say If you are unhappy with your treatment you may ask for a refund. This man is awesome. A couple times he seems rushed but thats because he helps so many.

Angela Smith-Slack MD
Dr. Burton and Dr. Slack are excellent pediatricians. My children feel very comfortable with them and I have observed them with children of all ages. I always recommend them to anyone who asks. The nurses and office staff are also fine people. If you want a kind, caring group of doctors who will get to know your child as an individual, then this is the place to go.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
