Review of Dr. Waters


Dr. Waters has forgotten her oath or has seen so much she’s stopped caring. Her demeanor was absolutely terrible. I thought it might be me but my friend in the room told me the same thing. She did not even address the problem I was having because there was a level of prescription drugs I my system. She could clearly see I was prescribed. Her attitude and level of care really just sucked. I wish nobody had to experience what I did.

Review of Dr. Akoto


My experience is wonderful with Dr. Akoto. She is the only doctor who helped me with my BP to decrease. She also recommend me to get skin tags removed and now I love my skin without my moles! She takes her time & listen to any questions you may have. I would definitely recommend her.

Review of Dr. Dickson

- in Ellenwood, GA |

Dr. Dickson is outstanding! She is very personable, patient, and shows genuine interest in my well-being as a patient and a person. She actively listens and interacts, and is highly responsive. Her experience and expertise showed through clearly during our interaction. Also, she has one of the most pleasant "best-side manners" I've ever experienced with a healthcare provider. I highly recommend Dr. Dickson!!!

Review of Dr. Cheema

- |

Board certified Anjum Cheema MD is the gold standard for an ophthalmologist. He handles every kind of eye problem and his communication skills are second to none. Dr. Cheema joined Kaiser Permanente a few years ago and practices at two KP facilities.

Review of Dr. Ali

-Kennesaw, GA |

Very impersonal. Was not finished with lunch when walked into patient room. When asked about side effects, he stated that they are so rare...that they need not be discussed. Very sure if himself, but not tue career for him.

Review of Dr. Chan

-Florence, Ky |

All 3 of my children (ages 11months, 8, 10) have been seeing Dr. Chan since she joined the pediatricians office in KY last year. She is absolutely the best! Takes the time to discuss concerns and explains everything thoroughly. I HIGHLY recommend her!

Review of Dr. Sweeney

- in Jonesboro, GA |

I first saw Dr. Sweeney as my OB when I found out I was pregnant. From the first appointment I had with her, I knew that she would become my permanent doctor. She was very professional, friendly, & always addressed any questions or concerns I had about my pregnancy. She gave me valuable information regarding things to do & not to do during my pregnancy, as I had GD, & was also honest about the risks that could come with GD. Her staff was extremely helpful & always made my visits more relaxing.
