Patient Comments (1)
in Thomaston, GA |
Dr. O was very concerned about my mother-in-law's health during her stay at Southern Regional. He was very quick to find answers to her health issues, and was very quick to ease our concerns. He was also very straight forward about the tough decisions that had to be made. He gave us choices and the consequences of each choice. Best doctor I have seen practice medicine. Please see this doctor if you ever have any medical issues. You won't be disappointed.
