Dr. Defazio is fully knowledgeable about my existing ankle issues. After xrays, it was good to know that my situation has not changed much from before, which was, kind of a good news that it has not gone worse. Certain things in life are, as they are. Nobody can stop from getting older, & aging has its own challenges.
the doctor was excellent, nice person and helpful
Had a recurrent infection, got an appointment the same day and the issue addressed that morning. Would happily refer to DeFazio
The time spent with me by Dr. DeFazio was greatly appreciated. I have found a new Doctor and am very excited. Thank you
Dr. DeFazio did a great job getting up to speed on an existing set of conditions (he was seeing me for the first time in the absence of my regular doctor).
[Dr. DeFazio] is great!. He explained everything about the surgical procedure and answered all my questions. Great bedside manner.
Very easy to schedule an appointment. Friendly staff and knowledgeable doctor. Definitely coming back!
I was very pleased with the care and professionalism of every one in the entire office.
Dr. Was professional and warm and supportive.
I've been very pleased with the results of Dr DeFazio's treatment plan for my toenails
The doctor treated a longstanding problem on my feet, especially my right foot, and there's been visible improvement (after having the problem for 50 years) in just a short time.
I've seen all 3 doctors at the Clarksville location and I am impressed with all of them. Their professionalism, advice, and care have been excellent. I'm very happy I found this practice.
Dr DeFazio is not only an excellent physician but a wonderful and caring person. He really cares about his patients. I feel as though I am in good hands. He listens and involves me in my care and I trust that he will always treat me in my best interest. The staff here is amazing. Everyone from the front desk to the medical assistance are top notch! Nancy at the front desk is exceptional. This is one of the best practices !
DeFazio....A+ all the way....Thank you.
Careful examination and treatment and thorough plan for followup.
He did not dismiss my complaint even though the X-ray showed no broken bones. He explained very succinctly what I should do to alleviate the pain and took a real interest in my well being.
Easy to talk to.
My Doctor was excellent.
Caring and aware of patients feelings
Experience from start to finish was excellent -- a well run organization!
