I recommend Dr. Crispens and Vanderbilt Clinic and hospital at any opportunity. The infrastructure of IT is amazingly efficient and fast and the testing system (Radiology and Lab) have excellent turnaround reporting times. I am thrilled with the release of test results immediately to patients who use the portal and desire to see results. Thank you for that decision.
