Seek care elsewhere

Dr. Southard has misdiagnosed multiple times, taken months to arrive at a serious diagnosis and keeps poor, incomplete records. He also does not maintain knowledge of reports from other doctors and admits to gaining information on new drugs from television commercials.

One fantastic doctor.

When my husband was dying He was there to help with anything I needed help with. He has been my doctor for about 30years. And I appreciate all he has done for me. If he is taking new patients and you need a doctor---try him and you will be satisfied.

Beyond his prime

Dr. Southard fails to read tests he has ordered and does not look at reports of doctors he has referred to. He has lost all interest in patient care. Obtaining sick or well visits is nearly impossible. Seek care elsewhere.
