Care Philosophy

I believe that all people are created in the image of God and as such it is my responsibility to treat everyone to the best of my ability, regardless of the circumstances. I'm a firm believer in medical education and I will keep my patients and my colleagues as up to date as possible, which includes public seminars for bariatric and other types of surgery in additional to providing lecture material for students and other physicians. Also, good communication is a must in medicine as in life.

I went to the ER with what I thought were ovarian cysts. A few hours later they came back and said Dr. Cartwright wanted to take my appendix out. Before my surgery he came and spoke with me and I can not say enough about his bedside manner. He seems to really care for his patients. The procedure didnt take long and he came back to check after I came out of recovery and I was able to go home the same day!

Dr Cartwright is an amazing Dr. I trust him and he is very thorough. I am upset with the after care. The office staff changed after my surgery and I am upset with the lack of communication. I have called multiple times and spoke with the front desk and they wouldn't call back. I sent emails with no returns. I had an emergency situation and no return calls or help from this office. I had complications from the surgery and no one from this office helped me. Scheduling after surgery was horrible.

My friend referred me to Doctor Cartwright. I went to see him for the first time and I explained the problems that I've been dealing with for years. He immediately told me what he thought it was and said he was willing to help me. He ordered a test to be done. The results were what he expected. He preformed surgery to help fix the problem. He is the most caring doctor I have met. I would recommend him to every one of my family and friends.

Dr. Cartwright was recommended by my primary doctor, Dr. Julie Roberts. I found him to be very interested in my hernia situation, very caring and patient with me andinterested in a time situation I had so he worked my surgery in within a few days. He was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole process....never rushed me at all. He is a fine and caring gentlemen and excellent doctor. I would most definitely recommend him to everybody!

My wife moved us to Columbus GA . So that I could get the help I needed . Needless to say everyone soon threw their hands up and said there is nothing we can do . I have been Nausea 24/7 for the pass two years. We got Dr . Cartwrights info from my Pain Speacialist Dr Percell. Eight months later , One surgery later . No more Nausea or retching . The Doc is Top's and his crew is good to go !!! They will fix it or find someone who can .

Dr. Cartwright took the time and effort to work with my insurance company to get my surgery approved. His staff is helpful and knowledgeable which ensured everything went smooth from the first visit to post op. The surgery went well and I am looking forward to future wellness visits to maintain my health and well being. Would rank him as best Dr. In Columbus, Ga.
