Pardee Hospital chief medical officer, Dr. Robert Kiskaddon, explains the helpfulness that Pardee's wellness phone line 1-866-790-WELL (9355) offers its patients in selecting a doctor. See below an expert from the article found in the Times-News on Tuesday, July 20: “In some respects, people need to develop an attitude of demystifying the medical profession and realize they’re going to a clinician who is a consultant to their health,” said Dr. Robert Kiskaddon, chief medical officer of Pardee Hospital in Hendersonville. “You’re a consumer who has criteria for what you want to purchase in the marketplace.” Pardee Hospital offers a wellness phone line where potential patients can share their preferences for a doctor’s gender, certification and specialty.

Kiskaddon said there’s nothing wrong with being selective when choosing a doctor. “It doesn’t benefit the physician or the patient when one is uncomfortable,” Kiskaddon said.
