Ratings for Dr. John Michael Briley
I have been seeing Dr.Briley for T least 18 years as well as several of my family. He is by far one of the most caring,considerate and professional Dr. I have ever seen. He knows what his limitations r and if there is even a remote possibility that he is not qualified to treat something out of his realm of medicine he's always eager to refer u to someone that is. His staff is excellent,professional and highly motivated to help patients.i can't imagine going anywhere else!!
"Dr." Briley like many other businessmen knows how to act to gain the confidence in his clients. He has a personable bedside manner and charismatic personality. He obtained his NPDoc. degree from Vanderbilt. This is the link to the site: http://www.nursing.vanderbilt.edu/msn/fnp_plan.html It takes a Nursing degree and 18 months of training to be able to practice under the supervision of a licensed physician. See: http://www.tn.gov/sos/rules/0880/0880-06.pdf He must have 20% of his charts reviewed by his supervising physician every 30 days and that doctor must be available for consultation at all times. Vanderbilt also allows high school graduates to obtain this degree with an additional 18 months of training (3yrs total). By comparison my physician was in the top 10% of his class in biochemistry for his BS, 4 yrs of med school, 4 years of residency (total of 12 years). He generally does good work for his degree of training but sometimes his ego gets him in trouble. Don't be misled.
I want to apologize for my wife's post on July 19th. Dr. Briley was very to the letter and refused to refill her narcotics after she had been to multiple other offices within the month. I will continue to see him and hope her comments are taken for what they are!...Sherman W.
I have been seeing Dr Briley for 8+ years. I drive an hour to go see him versus some others that are available. If you want someone who knows his stuff, and is personable - go see him. He also talks on your level and explains what is going on. a++ (Jeff H.) yea, i'll put my name on this.
"Doctor" Briley.... actually a nurse practitioner who misrepresents himself as an MD made a major mistake with my health care. It was only later that I found out I was actually seeing a nurse. I dont mind seeing nurse practitioners for colds or flu or something small, but had I known what his credentials were, I would have realized that my condition was beyond his capabilities.
