in Rome, GA |
A wonderful surgeon, very skilled and a terrific person and a very caring physician.
in Marietta, GA |
My family physician referred me to Dr. Wallace after another Thoracic Surgeon misdiagnosed and unsuccessfuly operated on me. This turned out to be the best thing she could have done. Dr. Wallace was knowledgeable, caring, understanding, thorough and extremely nice. I'm not sure if I've ever felt as comfortable and confident in a doctor on the 1st visit as I did with Dr. Wallace. I'd rate her 10 stars instead of 5 if I could. Excellent doctor!!
