Dr Belcher has been great at every single appointment we have attended. He performed my daughter's surgery and he has always been very friendly and attentive, yet professional. He always kept us updated and made us feel at ease during, before, and after the procedure.

Dr, Belcher is one of our favorites. He's patient, kind, supportive in the cleft journey and takes time to answer questions. He's one of the best physicians we've seen at Vandy.

We have local ENTs in our area but we make the long drive to continue to see Dr. Belcher. This telehealth saved us a trip, and I didn't feel like we missed anything by not being in clinic.

We were blown away by Dr. Belcher's kindness, care and expertise. We have LOVED our ENT for 6 years but, after meeting Dr. Belcher today, we will be switching to his care going forward. Can't say enough about him and I've also said the same to my TN cleft parents group.
