What People Say About Dr. Patrick Sullivan, MD

Following an Emergency Colostomy I was referred to Dr. Sullivan for ongoing treatment to have this procedure reversed. All subsequent Dr. visits, tests and preparations to have this colostomy reversed were performed by Dr. Sullivan and his staff, primarily at Emory Hospital on Clifton Rd. I had two surgeries to complete this process. Dr. Sullivan has a great 'bed side' manner, very informative, very involved and very responsive, even replying to my concerns via Emory's Portal personally.

Dr. Sullivan did a great job with my hemorrhoidectomy. I was actually able to go to work after one day of rest and significant discomfort was gone within 1 week. He was friendly, thorough and fast in our meetings. He left me a phone number to reach him quickly with any questions during my recovery. I should have had this surgery 10 years ago!

Dr Sullivan is a very conscientious and skillful surgeon. He patiently explained every aspect of the procedure to me in detail. I was very impressed by his extremely high level of professionalism. I owe the ease of my recovery to the meticulous instructions that Dr Sullivan and his team gave me to follow post surgery. He was very attuned to my concerns. This doctor is very serious about his job of helping heal patients. I recommend him without reservation because I am very happy with the result.
