Provider Reviews

Dr. Sanford is great. She explains well. She’s very thorough and tries to get to the bottom of all symptoms. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Review for Dr. Sanford

He was not very kind, did not listen, I was scheduled for a procedure with him but I think I will cancel and try to see the first doctor I have seen before.

Review for Dr. Grupka

My daughter went to ER for abdominal pain and ended up with appendicitis. He was very attentive to her needs.

Review for Dr. Memark

Dr. Blatt saved my life. He is the best in the Atlanta area. He takes the time to explain the procedures and makes you completely comfortable with his care. I could not recommend him highly enough!!!!
