Our entire communication and experience at Vanderbilt has been one that each person has treated us with care and taken time to answer any questions we have had. We appreciate not feeling rushed in our appointments and truly making sure we were heard and responded to. We appreciate the expertise and care. Thank you. Dr Acosto was wonderful explaining the tests results and my husband's condition.
