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.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Cartwright's 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.
