Patient Comments (2)
in Flemingsburg, KY |
On June 17, 1998, Dr. Reed was instrumental in saving my life. She performed emergency cardio by-pass surgery, after I had coded 4 times in the ER. This was at King's Daughters' Hospital in Ashland, KY. Following my surgery, she spent the night at the hospital to monitor my progress. I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Reed. I am forever grateful for her.
in Tifton, GA |
Dr. Reed was one of the Dr's from the team of Dr's that I had during my 6 month stay at MCCGA in Macon. She performed one of the two Thoracotomies that I had. She did an excellent job and I would recommend her %100 to anyone.
