We were blown away by Dr. Belcher's kindness, care and expertise. We have LOVED our ENT for 6 years but, after meeting Dr. Belcher today, we will be switching to his care going forward. Can't say enough about him and I've also said the same to my TN cleft parents group.

My daughter's entire team of doctors with Vanderbilt have been awesome. We seem to add more and more with each milestone, and none have disappointed us. Everyone shows care, concern and kindness. We couldn't be more happy with our choice of Vanderbilt for our daughter's cleft lip land palate needs.

This was a wonderful experience for my son and me. This doctor was so kind and attentive, and obviously very emotionally intelligent. I'm so grateful for his attention to detail and the kindness and support he showed my son. I couldn't be happier!
