Patient Testimonials

My experience at the Memphis Surgery Center was excellent. From the nurse that called me for all my information to the nurse that took me to my car after surgery, made me feel special. The staff was very friendly and professional and seemed to love their jobs. I couldn’t have had better care.

Best podiatrist: Dr. Keel and the staff. Always efficient and professional.

“I recommend going here (UT Family Medicine- St. Francis). Doctors are great and yes there is a little wait time, but it’s because the doctors in this group take time with each patient to figure out what’s going on with there health.”

“Dr. Sarah Smith (UT Dermatology)  is an exceptionally knowledgeable dermatologist. She never rushes our appointments, is always very thorough, and is an extremely compassionate doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Smith.”
