  • Dr Mawn was SUPER. She really listened and explained. Her exam was very thorough. The only thing I would recommend is that she should introduce herself when she comes in the room and say hello to the patient. I wasn't sure she was Dr Mawn at first -- the resident was already in the room with me, so I guessed that she must be Dr Mawn! But she could have been a fellow. However everything else about the appointment was really great. She was attentive to my care, and she was very personable. But introducing yourself is important!

  • Very dismissive. I'm dissatisfied with the delay in my care and will be going to another provider outside of Vanderbilt for definitive treatment. I regret having to do so as a physician here.
