I was sent because of my back pain. He takes great care of me. He explains the procedures and treatments that are needed. He takes the time needed, he is not in and out like some specialist you see. Wonderful Dr. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a pain management professional.

Can't really say I would recommend or not. I had a MRI done 2 wks ago and I've left 2 msgs at Savannah office and 1 msg at vidalia office still No one has returned my call to give me results of my MRI.

Highly recommend--brilliant doctor, wonderful bedside manner, Good teacher--he explained to me exactly what was happening and why I needed the injection--he included a hands-on visual aid of a spine and lower back and explained exactly what he would be doing with the injected steroid.

I found Dr. Hegarty,after trying several doctors that gave up on me and said there was no more they could do to help. I can't thank Scott and him enough for taking the time to listen and BELIEVE in me. They found things wrong that others couldn't. They took exceptional care of me and didn't allow me to become dependent on medications.They found other solutions,which gave me my life back.I went from being dependent on others, to owning my own business,and doing things I was told I couldn't do.
