"If I could give zero stars, then I would. This doctor was very rude and seemed a bit off. Do you know when you get a weird vibe of someone, and you want to avoid them? Thats how I felt with him. I saw him once and I will not return. I had to see him because my doctor left. Do something about this guy as your company is losing business."

"It is unbelievable how many others have had the same experience I did with Dr. Childress. Something just isn't right. He barely looks at you, definitely doesn't listen and seems like he is lost. I had to make another appointment to see the NP because he did not call in any medication for one of my concerns during my appointment with him, which had to do with my breathing and I needed a refill on my nebulizer! Wasted my time and I had to pay another copay!!"

"Dr. Childress was rude and curt. He didn’t take the time to explain my diagnoses nor did he give me the opportunity to explain all of my concerns. When he finished examining me he sat down wrote my rx, said give me a minute and walked out the door. He never returned. He didn’t asking any questions. The staff wasn’t friendly either. I won’t be returning."

"He’s very slow, doesn’t give me much confidence that he knows what he’s talking about. They demanded money up front and since I didn’t know what my copay would be, they just charged me a random amount of money. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
