Dearest Brain and Tea, just a short note to tell you both how much my family has grown to trust and love you, not just for your medical talents, not just for your compassionate delivery of the status our ailments but most importantly how much you care for each and every one of us.. You have always been there for us in some of our darkest hours and this was a timely opportunity for me to be able to put it down on paper. Love from all the Shaw’s
I have been using The Little Black Bag for four years. Dr Brian and Tea Stephens have provided me with the best professional health care I’ve ever received. As a resident in an Assisted Living Facility I need on occasions special care and both of the Dr’s are a phone call or e-mail away. During visits they take time to listen to my medical needs and always respond with the necessary prompt medical treatment needed. I am so happy with Brian and Tea and the expert medical care I am receiving and it is the best medical decision I ever made.
Both of my elderly parents have been patients of Dr. Brian and Dr. Tea. It was such a relief when we could stop the hassle of transporting them to doctors’ offices for appointments; and we knew they were being seen regularly enough by the Stephens’ for their progress to be carefully tracked. Dr. Brian took a great deal of time with us to explain options and offer support when my father’s health began to decline. Dr. Tea and Dr. Brian were always available by phone, whether for an emergency or just answering a question. We will always attribute our mother’s continued longevity, even after life-threatening medical issues, to answered prayer. That prayer supplied us with the attentive care and thoughtful expertise of Dr. Brian and Dr. Tea.
We were honored to have my mother under the care of Dr Brain & Dr Tea Stephens. We have never had such compassionate, caring, doctors who would take the time to explain care to the patient and family, making sure we understood. They have the patience answering any and all questions, always available and receiving a quick response. They treated us like their family.
When our mother’s situation created a need for in home care, we contacted Little Black Bag Medical. The home visits and readily available consultation provide a convenience and peace of mind which is unequaled by HMO or hospital visits. The compassionate and caring demeanor of Dr. Tea Stephens provides a personal touch which is increasingly rare in the modern medical establishment. The convenience and personalized care of Little Black Bag Medical makes it an excellent option for the Jacksonville area.
This note comes to you with my deepest, heartfelt thanks. The compassion and care that you showed my dear, sweet Mom is beyond what I could have ever hoped for her…it is what she so deserved! Your in-home medical care allowed her to enjoy going out with friends and family, which she loved rather than going to doctors appointments, which she did not. Mom was not a big fan of going to the doctor even in her younger days…so you made excellent medical care possible for her without it being a “chore”. I also want you to know how much I appreciated your phone calls and emails to me. You always helped me know exactly what was going on, what our choices were and what needed to be done!I truly think that finding you was a gift and one that I will always cherish.
We had the privilege of Drs. Tea and Brian caring for both of our mothers in the final months and days of their lives. They brought tremendous confidence and comfort to them and our family. They were quick to respond to our contacts and patiently answered our questions. Their medical skill, professionalism and kind, peaceful demeanors were priceless during difficult times. We are so confident in them and their care that we have become patients!!!
I’ve had the privilege of knowing both Tea and Brian Stephens for six years. I’ve not only known them professionally but also personally. My daughter taught two of their children in her kindergarten class. However, it was through their practice that I came to know how they truly care for their patients. They were my mother’s doctors for the last five years of her life. It’s hard to express the gratitude I feel for them. They treated my mother with dignity, respect, gentleness and love during the time she was under their care. Going through her end days was extremely difficult but they made the process so much easier by giving me encouragement, letting me know that what was happening was normal, and by responding to every question I had in a timely manner. I will forever be grateful for their professionalism, wisdom and care during a very difficult time in my life.
My wife and I feel very fortunate and advantageous to have Dr. Brian Stephens and Dr. Tea Stevens to visit us for our medical needs in our home or my place of business. We not only have their expert medical advise, but their staff is equally very professional and friendly. We recommend without hesitation to have the professionals from Little Black Bag Medical for your medical needs.
Having moved my elderly mother into an assisted living facility, we were so very fortunate to have been referred to Little Black Bag Medical. Finding a physician in a new medical community is challenging, and we are so grateful to have Doctors’ Brian and Tea Stephens looking after her. There are not enough superlatives to describe the quality of care received by my mother. By making “house calls,” Little Black Bag Medical offers individualized and personalized treatment and follow-up, so often lacking in many of today’s medical practices. To say that they are knowledgeable is a given, but add in excellent communication and familiarity with the complexities of our health care system, combined with respect for their patients and caregivers, makes us confident that we have entrusted the care of our loved one to the best for her and for us.
