Dr. Rangarajan made me feel comfortable from the start. He is very professional and made my experience at the doctor fun. I was able to move forward with confidence knowing he is always there if I have questions.
When you live in the Mid-south, it is not hard to find someone who has experienced a problem with chronic sinus infection. It is less common to find a person who had been totally satisfied with the course of treatment their doctors have provided. The level of care I have received from Dr. Beckford has been exceptional. I am healthier now than I have been in months because of the treatment they have provided me. I highly recommend either of these physicians to anyone searching for a doctor who is highly knowledgeable and professional, and blessed with kindness, patience, and a sense of humor.
With the holidays coming up, I needed a dermatologist – and fast! I called to make an appointment with Dr. Allison Jones with UT Dermatology and was seen within two days. She was incredibly knowledgeable and super easy to talk to – with the BEST bedside manner. I’m definitely going back and am recommending her to all of my friends and family.
