Dr. McEachin and Courtney are blessings from heaven. They are so caring and compassionate; as well as excellent surgeon and PA! They have been so good to my son and family. Knowledge and teaching to family members concerning diagnosis and treatment are a part of their personalities. Thank God he has been my son's surgeon and Courtney has been a part of his medical care. Definitely an asset to our community and Tift Regional Medical Center. Thank you! God bless!

I cannot say enough of good words about Dr. McEachin! I was very nervous on surgery and was not the best patient I am sure. He took the time to explain the procedure entirely, answered all my questions and most importantly eased my nerves. He made me feel like the surgery was nothing more than a walk in the park and assured me he would take good care of me. Before surgery he even came into the room going over the procedure again and answering any questions. Great staff, great doctor. A+++
