Skintags and mole checks show details Skintags and mole checks
by Kelly jo on Apr 1st, 2015

I have been going to Dr pardue for many years and he is an excellent dermatologist. He is very caring and kind as well as very informative. He has taken pre cancerous moles and skin tags off me. He has talked to me about making sure I wear a high SPF sunscreen and to make sure I apply it regularly and to wear a wide brim hat and to avoid the sun in the hottest part of the day from 10-3 because of my fair completion. I would recommend Dr Pardue to anyone he will take excelkent care if you and your dermatology problems.

Great visit at Belle Meade Dermatology. Had six places treated on my face and one biopsy. Thanks to Dr. Chris Pardue and his nurse all this was done in an efficient & timely manner. Retired accounts receivable specialist.

There is not a doubt in my mind that the positive reviews about Dr. Pardue were entered by someone in the practice or by Pardue himself. For the worst medical experience thus far, I thank Belle Meade Dermatology. I clearly wrote on the form that I was planning to become pregnant and the dr prescribed me something that says not to use it while pregnant or planning to become pregnant. He probably would have connected the dots had he stayed in the room for more than 3 seconds. He had already written the prescription before walking in the door... Without even looking at me. I also really disliked that they made me pay my copay before I saw the doctor. I was ready to walk out after waiting for 1 hour past my appointment. I'm sure their awful customer service is the reason they have to charge you before you are actually seen.. Otherwise, no one would pay because everyone would walk out. Such a sad waste of money for 3 seconds with the worst dermatologist ever (Dr. Pardue) and a prescription that is absolutely useless to me.

Dr. Pardue and his office staff, especially one of the front desk clerks are very uninterested and uncaring. I will never go back to him.

My husband has been going to Dr. Pardue for a year or so now. He complains that he is not taken very seriously, and that he walks out of there with a prescription plus several \"frozen\" areas on his head and face each time. He also states he hasn`t seen Dr. Pardue in several visits, it has always been his physician assistant. That is a licensed medical person, but you shouldn`t have to pay the same office visit rate for a lesser trained person. I happen to know that Dr. Pardue used to work in the local emergency rooms as an ER doctor, then quit to open Belle Meade Dermatology. I don`t know how much dermatology training he has actually had. My husband is going to go to another dermatologist this year. Be warned, just because the name says \"Belle Meade\" doesn`t mean you get that type care.

I went there for a condition that developed on my hands. I saw Dr. Pardue for no more than 2 minutes.He prescribed me a corticosteroid, said come back in a month and left. We all know that steroids don`t cure anything, they just remove some symptoms.He did not say anything about this being contagious or not, what should I expect, how to protect people around me if needed.He did not ask are other parts of the body affected in fact my feet were.One of the nurses was useless, the second one gave me a steroid shot so I guess she was the better one.100 out of the window.If they try to set you an appointment with him say NO or take a picture of him if you want to see him longer and ask questions. The picture will give you the same answers you`ll get from him- NONE.You`ve being warned. Just look at his revues here. Either one star or if you look at the language of the positive revues they have being written by his nurses or family- nothing specific just glowing praises.The good part is that he is just a dermatologist, not somebody dealing with real health conditions. It would be scary then.

Terrible Doctor show details Terrible Doctor
by fishlens at Citysearch on Aug 26th, 2010 on

Dr. Pardue is terrible. I went in to have my hands examined and hopefully get some good medicine to heal whatever was wrong with them. He only glanced at my hands and immediately diagnosed it. He did not answer any of my questions and would not, in my opinion, actually examine my hands. So I`d never go back to this guy. Waste of a 50 dollar copay. In fact, I may write them a letter demanding my 50 dollars back. He`s just another one of those doctor`s who wants to visit as many people as possible and prescribe something as quickly as possible. He even wants you to come back for other skin treaments and things you don`t ask about and you aren`t there for. He just wants money.

terrible experience left with scarring show details terrible experience left with scarring
by maryscha at Citysearch on Jul 8th, 2010 on

I`m 50 and had two small `sun spots` or `age spots` on my face. I wanted them checked out by a dermatologist since I have a family history of melanoma.Then I was going to ask if something like Retin-a would help fade them. Dr Chris Pardue looked at my face and without saying another word, directed his assistant to freeze them off. She proceeded to freeze the spots and FIVE other places on my face before I even had time to respond. Seriously, after the sixth one, I said \"Stop! wait a minute! how is this going to look tomorrow when I go back to work\" To which Dr Pardue said, \"Oh, they`ll be scabbed and oozing for several days and then disappear.\" 1he never asked me if it was a convenient time for me to have scabs all over my face!!!!2 he belittled me for questioning him3 he left without ever giving me any aftercare instructions!!! could I wash my face could I use makeup to cover the scabs---I finally just asked the receptionist at the desk as I left, almost in tears.The following day, the scabs were dime-sized, oozing and didn`t heal for 2 weeks. Even now months later, I still have large, light -brown patches where each removal was---and the sun spots are STILL THERE! I`ve been extremely cautious about using sunscreen so the spots don`t get worse. I wouldn`t dream of returning to his office. He was terribly, terribly arrogant and unprofessional.I just hope this review may help someone else avoid his office. I know when I booked the appt, I was thinking, \"well-Belle Meade Dermatology----it`s GOT to be a decent place!\" WRONG.Lastly, I`d assumed when I mentioned my family history of melanoma that he would do a `body check` to see if I had any suspicious places---but nope----just zapped the heck out of my face, charged me a couple hundred bucks, and left. He should

After reading the reviews on this doctor, I find it odd that all reviews are 1 star terrible experienceslike mine or fabulous reviews. Considering the treatment I received from this doctor, I would bet he gets on his web reviews boasting about HIS patient care and bedside manner. There was not one good thing about my entire visit, and wish I could erase the bad things that happened. I too was NOT treated and was told to make another appointment. They still charged me full price for the visit, eventhough came into the room for about 30 seconds and told me to reschedule. I wouldn`t pay and now am having to deal with a credit agency. I am a straight A college student who works very hard in my life, and I know when something isn`t moral. This doctor is not moral. Do yourself a favor, and find a doctor who is practicing for the right reasons...not this one.

The entire staff treats you like family. Dr. Pardue has a vast knowledge of medicine, but he knows how to explain conditions in a way that anyone can understand. His nurses are no nonsense, hard working, but caring. My condition has resolved, but I would definitely return should I have a recurrence.

This doctor, was so kind to me. He treated me like his best friend. I ended up with malignant melanoma stage 3 or 4. I lived to tell about it ( and it is only thanks to him). Not Vanderbilt, Sarah Cannon, American Cancer Society or anyone else. He now see

I was so disappointed on my 2 visits to Dr. Pardue....he wanted to talk the whole visit about a doctor friend we both knew; and I wanted him to diagnosis my illness. It was horrible. He spent almost no time on my issue and gave me no advisement. I left empty handed with no medicine or no treatment. When I asked about a large mole growth on my leg, he said 'this is like a bug bite.'I would not return ever.

I visited Dr. Pardue about 2 weeks ago about a cyst I have had on my ear for about 17 years and have not been able to find anyone to remove it till I spoke with him and I am now free of my little friend 45 min after I walked in the office.
