Review of Ashley Brigdon

- |

Ashley Brigdon is friendly, bright, and professional nurse practitioner. She listens, asks questions and is concerned about her patients. She tries to find answers to your problems and tries to help get the problem or issues resolved quickly. She communicates with others on your behalf. I like the fact she takes time to listen and cares about her patients. I recommend her and all the staff at Memorial Baratrics. They have been a life saver for me.

Review of Dr. Kelly Jr

- in Savannah , GA |

I met Dr. Kelley in an emergency situation. He was very kind and attentive but came up with an immediate plan of action. His accessment and expertise have a much better outcome than could have been possible. His care in the hospital was never rushed and I always felt I was in the best care. I would recommend him with the ultimate confidence.

Review of Ashley Brigdon

-Savannah, GA |

Horrible bedside manner. After 9 months of pain & a referral by my GI doc, all I got was .. blood test! and she claimed a referral for iron infusions but I never heard back from ANYONE! I had to call them. Could have cared less about pain I was experiencing & no mention of the fact my GI Doc had conferred with Dr. Kelly twice! Ashley is unfriendly, rude, condescending and disrespectful! I could go on and on. I have fired Dr. Kelly & his staff! Found new specialist now. She should be ashamed!

Review of Dr. Kelly Jr

- in Beaufort, SC |

Dr. Kelly was referred to me by my aunt. Dr. Kelly was very upfront and clear about my surgery and what I could expect during and after my stay at Memorial. He has an awesome bedside manner. Dr. Kelly took the time to answer all of my questions and those of my family, which truly put all of us at ease for my operation.

Review of Dr. Whipple

- in Savannah, GA |

My first encounter with Dr. Whipple and the staff at the Bariatric Center was more than amazing. Everyone there was very friendly and the flow of the office was on time. The time that you send with them makes it more comfortable and an ease to understanding what will happen with you and to you before, during, and after the procedure. I was not afraid and they gave me all the tools that I needed to be successful. I am very please with my experience at the Bariatric Center and Dr. Whipple.

Review of Dr. Kelly Jr

- in Savannah, GA |

An excellent doctor who truly cares about his patients. I have seen Dr. Kelly in 2014 for my hiatal hernia surgery and again in 2018 for a gallbladder removal. Both times the procedures were explained to me very well before and after the surgeries. Dr. Kelly even called me at home after my gallbladder surgery to check on me. The staff is friendly and helpful. The offices are clean and you can get an appointment as soon as you need to. I would recommend Dr. Kelly.

Review of Dr. Whipple

- in Savannah, GA |

Dr. Whipple has operated on my wife and I a total of 3 times (both of us in 2018 and once on me in a prior year.). I would recommend Dr. Whipple, without any reservation or hesitation, to anyone needing abdominal surgery. He is one of the nicest, professional, and caring physicians that I have ever come across. He listens, he explains, and he gives the patient all the time they need.
