We could not have had a more perfect experience. Given the knowledge and training of our physician, we could not believe the amount of time he shared explaining things to us.

I would give Dr. Stephens a 10 if I could. He's an exceptional MD who cares about his patients way more than most. He is also the type of doctor I think every MD should strive to be.knowledgeable, skilled, conscientious, honest and is a good teacher as well. Additionally, I think it speaks highly of a doctor when so many under him love working with him. At every level at VUMC, I heard nothing but good things about Dr. Stephens as a doctor and as a person and that did so much to boost my confidence and give me peace of mind as I put the restructuring of my spine in his care.
