will not see anyone else but Dr Frank Tolbert. he knows your history and knows how to treat you or finds out how to treat you! you are not just a number to Dr Tolbert you are looked at as a real person with real sickness that needs to be treated. he treats you with respect and listens and doesn't just guess at what's wrong and prescribe some medicine he actually cares about what's wrong and treats you accordingly! you need more doctors with his bedside manner and less doctors that treat you as a number and as money for the company baptist has gotten away from treating patients as people Dr. Tolbert treat everyone as a special person that needs his expertise and his understanding
