Dr. Curlin and Dr. Jesse were great. Although nervous, I felt very comfortable with both of them. They each left medical decisions up to my husband and I, and offered their input after our decision. I felt like Dr. Jesse was very thorough in collecting my history and getting a full picture of my symptoms before jumping into any educational pieces. I was very pleased with my care today and feel very confident moving forward.

My overall experience was exceptional. I felt listened to, and I felt that the doctor was making reasonable decisions with regard to treatment options. This was a noticeably different experience from the treatment I received at a different institution. In the case of coming to Vanderbilt, I have a lot less stress and anxiety about engaging with any healthcare providers.
