Patient Comments (2)

in Newnan, GA |
I have had 2 spinal fusions performed by Dr. Gullick with good success. I much appreciated his conservative approach, only operating when all other options had been exhausted. He is one of the only surgeons I have seen that actually LISTEN to patients. I wholeheartedly recommend.
