Would absolutely KEEP this provider!Dr. is a "jewel" HE LISTENED and understood my frustrations! All I ask was for him to be HONEST about my condition and he was! He was the 5th Dr. I have been to. 2 in Asheville, 1 in Charlotte 2 at Winston Salem . Dr. Thomas Freehill had seen me, but I had to have some test, by the time I could make my appointment for surgery, he was leaving for Michigan and gave me a great referral to Dr. Tuohy.After 4 1/2 yrs. I hurt no more!

excellant doctor

3/7/2017

Since my illness is quite severe it is most important that my providers treat me with dignity and respect and above all show a compassionate heart. I felt as though this provider lacked in this area and was a bit abrupt and not really wanting me to talk or to respect the knowledge I have as a critical nurse for over 40 yrs. I am sure he is an excellent surgeon, but since I am not a surgical candidate, he really needs to beef up his bedside manner. Right now, that means more to me than anything else
