Review of Dr. Pipkin

-

Saw my 12 year old daughter July 30th 2017 for abdominal pain. After a week in the hospital was sent home with no answers. A year later we were referred back to this doctor by a specialist for surgery to remove her gallbladder based on tests that found that my daughters sphincter of OD was only functioning at 30%. He refused to remove her gallbladder. It’s been another year now and my daughter still deals with abdominal pain if she eats lunch at school unless she stands in the back of the classroom.

Review of Dr. Polimenakos

- in Chapin , SC |

This man is truly amazing, talented, humble, and I trust him with my life! He takes his time with you, really listens to you, comforts you, and doesn’t take a “one-size-fits-all” approach. When I met Dr. Polimenakos and had my first appointment with him I immediately knew my search for the right surgeon was over and asked when I could have him do my open heart surgery (extremely rare for me to actually ask for it!)!I would NOT have done it with anyone else, and his team is one-of-kind, as well!!

Dr. Pierce has seen our son from the time he was released from NICU and he loves her. She is also great with him and is great with answering worried mommy questions no matter how many.

Review of Dr. Cagle II

- in Ocala , FL |

I can't thank Dr Cagle, and the other professionals, in the PICU at children's hospital of Augusta enough. My granddaughter was brought in with seizures for an unknown reason and was unresponsive, Dr Cagle and the rest of the staff were quick to respond and I feel they are the reason she is responding so well.

Review of Dr. Pipkin

- in GA |

Dr. Pipkin performed thoracic surgery on my son when he was 14. During the entire process from diagnosis to surgery, he listened to my son's concerns first and foremost. He treated my child with respect and dignity. Most other doctors talk directly to the parents and forget to include the patient. Dr. Pipkin also takes the time to get to know his patients. He wants to hear about their hobbies, how school is going, etc. He encourages his patients to do work hard and do their best!

Review of Dr. Hatley

-Aiken SC |

When my granddaughter needed emergency surgery we were referred to the pediatric ER at .Augusta University Medical Center. I was extremely impressed with both Augusta University and Dr. Hatley. Dr. Hatley displays a degree of confidence that you can feel the minute he walks in the room. He is down to earth, explains everything in detail, and when your family member goes into surgery you know they are in good hands. Augusta University is fortunate to have Dr. Hatley.
