Review of Dr. Hunter

- |

If I could leave a negative star I would!!! My sister had surgery on Sept 6 and is STILL in the hospital as of MARCH 4, 2019 sick from the surgery he done on her. She was sent away because it was no places in Augusta that handle vent patients. Now she has a lot of things with her heart and Macon called him and he would not take her back. My sister is going to die because he messed up and he is a coward!! Run from this doctor as fast as you can. He does not care about the patient AT ALL!!!!

Review of Dr. Beecher

- in Martinez , GA |

Dr Beecher is excellent. My open heart valve replacement w a bypass went perfectly. I cannot imagine a better experience. Dr Beecher met with me and my family several times before and after. The whole staff at university hospital Augusta ga was superb. Everything was fully explained, I was given options. Dr Beecher himself met w all my family and close friends before the operation. Dr Beecher checked on me every day until I went home follow ups we're scheduled before I left. Thank God for him.

Review of Dr. Beecher

- in North Augusta, SC |

Dr. Beecher examined me thoroughly, gave me a complete explanation of my problem, how he would address it and answered all of my questions and concerns that I had. I had questions before the procedure and after I went. I called and he answered those. Afterward I found he had explained how I would feel. I felt comfortable and at ease with him as well as confident in his knowledge and ability.

Review of Dr. Hunter

- in Augusta, GA |

If I could give a negative star rating, I would! My hubby had a heart attack in Dec 2015. After the cardiac cath, one surgeon told us he thought they could do heart bypass surgery. Less than an hour later, Dr. Hunter decided my husband was too high risk to operate on. Dr. Hunter never had the decency to come talk to my husband or family member. He did not offer to try to find a place that could handle his complex case. I took my hubby to Texas and they operated, saving his life.
