I really appreciate having such a wonderful place to go for medical issues. I was diagnosed Type 2 diabetic a few years back at age 51 and had an Anti- Gad 65 test to determine if I had Auto antibodies... more which would make the diagnosis for me as late onset Type 1. I did have Auto antibodies as the result so I should have been changed to a Type 1 but the Endocrineologist I had been going to refused to believe I could be type 1.
I kept getting worse and thinner so I changed doctors. I tried Vanderbilt and was ready for the same reaction saying I am a type 2. Right away after reviewing my medical record and blood test results I was diagnosed as type 1. They also spend time with patients, suggest medical treatment you should have done and really care about what you think, want and need! I never liked going to a doctor's office but now it's no problem! I will never switch from Vanderbilt unless my insurance does not cover that place. All office employees and doctors I have seen or spoken with are so kind and understanding.
The staff on 5th floor was so nice to my mother. They r caring people the Doctors there was all about getting my mother the right care she needed getting her on the right meds. I would like to thank all... more staff members for what they do .Doctors, Nurses, Housekeepers , Dietary for luv u gave to me and my mother Thanks
You killed an innocent baby!!!!!! You should be shut down. Anyone who takes their family here is insane. THEY MURDERED A INNOCENT BABY. That was not your child not your decision. Especially when this hospital... more is the one responsible for his condition. He was happy and stable when taken from his family. NOTHING BUT MURDERERS
