I have been seeing Dr. Brown for at least 5 years. Honestly one of the best doctors I have seen...he is very knowledgeable and personable, and he listens and explains things very well.

L. Monts Aug 05 2020

Review for Dr. Brown

Dr. Bryan and his staff are very professional and caring. I had cataract surgery and it has gone very good. My eye improved drastically after my surgery and colors are so much brighter. Highly recommend Dr. Beau Bryan!

Dr. Mazzei and his staff have provided excellent cardio care to me for 7 years.

Aug 04 2020

Review for Dr. Mazzei

Excellent service and bedside manner. I absolutely refuse to see another cardiologist. When he moved, I moved. He has been my physician for more than 10 years. I don’t have to ask questions because he covers everything during your visit, the good and the bad and the not so good.

If you don’t want to suffer in pain after a major surgery then don’t go to this doctor. He is one of the most insensitive physicians I I have ever met. Certain patients get less care than others.

Review for Dr. Richter

I was very happy with Dr. Hamada - she made you feel comfortable and she showed that she cared about you and your health. I hate that she was no longer at Providence. It is hard to find a good doctor who is really interested in the well being of the patient.

Dr. Walker is probably one of the most stellar surgeons in Columbia. His skills are top-notch and yet, his demeanor and bed-side manner rise beyond that. My husband and I recommend Dr. Walker without reservation.

Salley Davis Apr 29 2020

Review for Dr. Walker

Dr. Leppard saved my husband's life when we went to the ER at Providence Hospital a year ago. He is probably the most stellar surgeon in Columbia. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone AND he just happens to have been my student at Heathwood Hall Episcopal School two decades ago.
