Dr. Serafin is knowledgeable and experienced. He is a quality physician. What I like most about him is that he is thorough but not quick to rush into tests or treatment. He practices conservative medicine. His referrals to specialists have always been excellent and he has taken exceptional care of my family.
I have been going to doctor's for one reason or another my entire life...Dr. Serafin, by far, is one of if not the best doctor I have ever had the opportunity to meet and be treated by. It was first suggested to me by my sister to go to his office and allow him to become my internist. I was impressed by my very first impression while making an appointment: the staff is knowledgeable, polite, efficient, and obviously respect him. I've been seeing him for years and he has accurately diagnosed my ailments and willingly sends me to specialists when he feels it necessary. In my experience, many doctor's are reluctant to send their patients to a different doctor for fear of losing them, with Dr. Serafin, it is nowhere near the case. A few years back, I unfortunately lost insurance, instead of casting me by the wayside, Dr. Serafin suggested that I go t a free clinic associated with Vanderbilt, I did so and a few years later when I regained insurance, he picked right up where he left off...I wasn't a paycheck, I was his patient. He is direct yet concerned, he has an almost fatherly bedside manner without becoming too familiar and unprofessional...I cannot say enough about this doctor. He is even exceptional with children, truly a rare find and an outstanding doctor, indeed! He
Dr. Serafin always seems to have the latest information, including statistics, related to any questions I have. He never seems rushed and seems genuinely interested in how I am doing physically and emotionally. Appointments are easy to get, his staff is efficient and friendly, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a super good doctor!
