I did not have a good experience.
in Tucker, GA |
I had a GREAT experience with Dr. Stubbs as my surgeon in 2016 when I received a pacemaker. He is skilled, very clear in his communications and expectations, superbly professional, keeps his promises, has a delightful office staff, and I experienced no complications. Without hesitation, I would recommend him.
in Atlanta, GA |
Dr.Stubbs was very abrasive and not welcoming. He made me feel unwelcome as if I was wasting his time when I was schedule to follow up with him. Worst experience ever.
