I have been a patient here for about 6 months. Yes, I have to agree w/ the other "Reviewers" that the Staff at the "Front Desk/Reception" are indeed somewhat rude, harried, and not very friendly; at all. The physician I was assigned could not be more professional, understanding, compassionate. The "Nurses" that upon intake go about gathering your "Vitals," (Weight, etc.) are less than "Professional," & quite un-friendly. The entire/overall "Atmosphere" there at C.I.P.M. is one of everyone being in a hurry, and for the most part this makes me as a patient feel more like a "Number." For those of us unfortunates that require "Pain Mgt.," this is all very unfortunate. We suffer many indignities solely by virtue of the types of medications that we need in order to simply cope w/ life on a day to day to day basis. The general "Treatment" afforded us at "C.I.P.M." makes life even MORE unbearable. I have to wonder how many Chronic Pain Patients have simply had enough, "Given up," & decided that they would rather not be living? My hope & prayer is that someone in Upper-Management from "C.I.P.M." Stein Drive, Chattanooga, Tennessee will READ some of these factual, honest "Reviews" & set about trying to improve things. Thank you.

I have been seeing Todd and his nurse Cynthia for 2 years now and I plan on seeing them for many years to come. Both of them are wonderful, caring, friendly, easy to talk to, understanding and compassionate. I had been to other doctors over the last few years with pain that just kept getting worse and even after xrays and MRIs no one really had any answers and the answers they did have might as well have been in another language because they only left confused and ready to give up. After my first visit wit Todd I knew more about what was going on and what course of treatment to take and had never been happier. he spends time telling me and showing me what is going on and why and what we can try to make it better. So far things are going great and even my quality of life as changed tremendously!
I have seen doctor Todd for a good while as well. He is a very good doctor and he does care about everyone. He is worth the drive to see even if you live a long ways away. Very good doctor and I miss his nurse he had Cyntheia. She was great but isn't with him any more. But thank you to Doctor Todd for caring.
