Dr Brooks listened to me, and reviewed my history and x-rays while I was there. Treatment of my knee pain was explained and he patiently discussed my issue and answered my questions.

Review for Dr. Brooks

Dr. Derks was very empathic when I went to see her for a neurological issue. She believed me and my symptoms even when other doctors didn't. She is a wonderful doctor and I am very grateful for her help.

Review for Dr. Greer

The Aiken Ophthalmologist's team did all the tests needed for Dr Greer to make a decisive diagnosis after he examined my eyes. Dr Greer will be my ophthalmologist in spite of the long commute from Columbia
