I've seen Dr Cole, Dr Patterson while he was still there, & currently have been receiving treatment from Kristen Dorch-Farmer. She is hands down Wonderful with a capital W! She took over for me after Dr Patterson, who was also great, up and left! She gives me cortizone shots in my back and believes me when I say im in pain-unlike the awful pain management dr who tried to put me on morphene! I needed to be able to get out of bed and function not stay in it! Dr Cole recommend me to a great physical therapist for my back. He was very kind and patient with me as I had only moved here a year or so ago and had alot of medical records with me! Although Kristin has taken over my care, any time I see Dr Cole in the office he makes it a point to say hello and ask how things are and how im feeling. I highly recommend him and his colleagues, especially if you are nervous about finding a new dr like I was! THANKS DR COLE & KRISTIN!

I also had some issues with billing.Brought my son in for a blood test.About two weeks later Tricare sent a letter saying the test is not covered unless they re-code and re-submit the claim.The People`s Clinic decided not to do it(never told me why)and I now have to pay the $90 lab fees plus 73.24 office visit.I'm really disappointed in Michael Patterson and the whole team.

Message from Dr. Cole: I am no longer with Covenant. I am now the owner of "The People's Clinic," 305 Dover Road, Clarksville, TN 37042. Phone: 931-552-6722. -- That is where I reside permanently. Covenant has a good reputation and I might still be there, if I hadn't had an opportunity to go into business for myself in the summer of 2008. Dr. Boles hired me in the Spring of 2004, and we started up the 1st Covenant F.P. clinic together, in Clarksville, on Wilma Rudolph Blvd. My focus from the beginning to the end there, was always on quality, compassionate patient care. That is what we built our reputation on and that is what will separate the good clinics and healthcare providers from the rest. Covenant has always been one of the good clinics and still is.

I was a patient at this office under the care of Dr. Gary Cole. He is absolutely wonderful. I was so happy for Dr. Cole when I learned that he was going to open his own clinic until I learned that 3 days after Dr. Cole turned in his 3 week notice to Dr. Boles, Dr. Boles fired him. I'm sorry but true Christians don't act like that. I have since followed Dr. Cole to his new clinic The People's Clinic and now not only myself but my husband and new daughter are very happy patients.

The care I have received from Covenant was always been exemplary. The staff from the doctors all the way down to the appointment line is extremely friendly and caring. My family and I never dread going to the doctor now. The wait time is also very short if any. I recommend them to everyone I know.

I had one office visit with Dr. Johnson and thought she was an awesome doctor who was very thorough. However she has a rude micromanaging nurse who comes as a packaged deal. It is bad enough to have to deal with people like that when you are not sick but when you are sick it just makes matters worse. Given the fact that I can not see Dr. Johnson without seeing her rude nurse I will find another practice where I am treated as a patient and no less. There are far too many health care providers out there to choose from and my money will not go to one that doesn't deserve it. As far as the christian perspective and setting, one person has ruined that image for me. I currently work in a hospital that is not affiliated with a christian image and we most definetly put forth much better patient care than I have recieved from her nurse

1st of all I was pleasantly surprised at how cheerful the women working the front desk were! Very kind and courteous, not your average hacked off,don't have time for your stupid questions, gossipy types that you find at other practices! Secondly I was able to make an appt very easily for both my children! No waiting-no hassle. Gotta love that. Thirdly the office is very cozy and inviting (painted in warm colors)--not sterile looking at all! My boys didn't even suspect they were at a dr's office! And last but not least I absolutely loved the nurse practitioner we saw! (Very well spoken, professional, and thorough). She was the kind of woman you could tell your problems to! I give this practice FIVE stars! Finally a great office where the whole family can be seen!

I would not recommend this practice. My husband went for an appointment and saw the nurse to get his vitals, find out why he was there, etc. After waiting over an hour in the room to see the doctor, he had to leave because of time, but he never saw the doctor. We were charged for a visit with the doctor, stating they did a complete physical. This did not happen - never saw the doctor, never had a physical. Now, if my husband NEEDS a complete physical, our insurance won't pay for it because Covenant Family Practice claims he had one! Trying to prove that the physical did not occur has been tedious. I was also told this was a Christian-based practice. If that is the case, this is all the more disturbing to me!

I have nothing but the best and utmost service and advises from Dr. Boles and his partners in this clinic!

They are professional in standards and personable in approach at the same time.

It is refreshing to find an excellent family practice clinic based upon patient satisfaction with a Christian Perspective. Care is exceptional and makes a person feels they count as a valued individual.
