Dr. Fentress emodies what it means to provide health CARE. She has always responded to my concerns with informed guidance and with urgent attention when needed. She listens, gives thought, not only using best practices based on the individual....but including patients in the process, its a partnership. She is the most amazing doctor I've ever had!

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Fentriss
I am new to Nashville and love the MDVIP program, I had the BEST CARE from Dr. Shapiro in NJ. DR Feintriss has a lovely office, VERY competent staff, and takes all the time you need. Being new to Nashville, TN I was especially appreciative of the extra attention.
My doctor has encouraged me to continue to active and work on portion control. The results were positive for my annual check up. I lost 10 pounds!!
I don't really have a story per say, but I would like to express my feelings on how I do feel towards Dr. Fentriss as my primary physican. I've been fortunate enough to be blessed with very good health, so for me I don't see her as often , which is a good thing I guess...

Ive known Dr Lee Anna Fentriss for over 20 years, and she was my physician even before MDVIP. Ive been her patient the years shes been with MDVIP. Im so fortunate for our Doctor-Patient relationship. Shes been a part of one-third of my lifes journey. Thank you for your trust and caring.

So fortunate to have her as head of the Seiberling health team!
I am new to the MDVIP family and unfortunately have already had to visit the office several times. Not only Dr. Fentriss but the entire practice is genuinely concerned about your health and wellbeing. That is hard to find nowadays. I have to drive from Mt. Juliet for my visits but it is well worth the drive for excellent care.
Dr. Fentriss was my primary care physician before she was affiliated with MDVIP, and she had always been so caring and thorough, I couldn't bear the thought of anyone else being my primary care physician. I know she keeps notes, but it is amazing how she remembers little things about my life. When I have a question and call the office, I always get a quick response. If she is unable to… See more
