Primary Care
Extremely competent and thorough physician who has a wonderful bedside manner, actively listens to her patients and is very empathic. Reliable & always on time. Easy to schedule appointments with and her staff is very friendly & pleasant but also very professional. She definately makes the patient part of the team and her assessments both physical & emotional are done thoroughly and competently. I have been an RN for 30 years and she is, in my opinion, one of the best physicians I have ever been treated by. Further, her medical records all completely electronic and even accessible to the patient on line. I very highly reccomended this bright young woman especially as a primary doc.

Franklin Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine
I absolutely love Franklin Orthopaedics and ALL of the staff (you know they like you when they joke around with you), they are like family, honestly I love going here. Love Dr. Jeff but love the PA's too. Went in today and Chris Hendrix, PA is so kind and compassionate and answers ALL of my questions, without me feeling like I am taking up his time. I know I hit him with a lot of questions and concerns. He went into detail of everything I needed answered. He is sending me for a MRI on my knee on Tuesday. I have done a lot of research on what he thinks COULD be a problem I am having, and he also helped me out with all of my inherited arthritic problems. Thank you Franklin Orthopaedics!!!!!

I love this practice and have been with them for almost a decade. When you have an injury you can get an appointment the same day and the doctors and staff will spend time with you. Upon an orthopedic injury don't go to the ER unless that's your last resort or if you are in dire peril. I appreciate that surgery is their last resort and that they are part of the changing word of medicine and offer Platelit Rich Plasma, which has helped with my arthritic knees. I hope to see stem cell transplants to come.

Mantle, Christopher, MD
Had to see a EMT pretty quick for a swallowing problem so my internist got me an immediate appt. with Dr. Mantle. I was taken on time and the staff was very friendly. Dr. Mantle was extremely nice and knowledgeable and pretty much figured out the cause before he did the scope. He was gentle and explained every step of the procedure. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Rudge and his whole staff are excellent. I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes to be seen but more than that the medical care is far superior to some of the "grocery store" clinics.I am grateful for the excellent care I have received there ! Thanks Dr. Rudge !!

Took my son here tonight, and he was absolutely fantastic! Joked around and didn't come off as some stuffy uptight doctor by any means, but at the same time I feel very confident in his diagnosis. VERY PLEASED, THANK YOU!! Also, the cash pay prices here can't be beat.

Looking for a new Doctor in Franklin and ended up seeing Dr. Suppinger - have been very happy at the responsiveness of the office and have been able to get appointments on short notice that fit into my work schedule. Very pleasant to work with, too.

Dr. Thomas was wonderful. He performed rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder. He did a great job! Plus one thing I really like about him, was that he prayed for me/with me right before surgery.

Fell and broke my arm - actually, turned out to be a bad break at the elbow - they got me in that very afternoon. Great people on staff. My favorite physician office ever!

Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
