Daniel Shuman

I am a native of Reidsville; my wife and I have lived in Reidsville now for 48 years and I have been the District 2 County Commissioner for 12 years. When Tattnall hospital was about to close several years back, people were very concerned that they would have to travel very far to receive a high level of medical care. Savannah being about 70 miles away is a good distance from us and it was going to be a very difficult transition to make. Over the last couple of years, since Optim purchased the hospital here in Reidsville, I have seen an upswing in our entire community. Not only has it increased our local economy for jobs but it has literally brought our county together.  Read More


Jack Waterlander, Back Surgeries

Over the last 10 years, I have had many problems with my back, all stemming back from a freak accident moving a heavy fridge that I believe started all the pain. Before meeting Dr. Bradley Heiges and Dr. Krishna Gumidyala, I had had three surgeries on my back to try and fix the issues and had been on a lot of pain medicine to try and ease the pain. After my surgeries, I developed drop leg which was yet another problem that I was dealing with and was also having a really hard time standing up straight. Nothing had seemed to work until my last surgery performed by Dr. Gumidyala and Dr. Heiges in August of this past year.

My first experience with Optim was with Dr. Heiges. He knew about my history with surgeries and was hoping to be able to loosen some of the tension with stimulation and other methods rather than going straight to surgery.  Read More


Pete Blocker, Back Surgery

We are blessed to have Optim Medical Center-Tattnall here in Reidsville with the number of doctors and all of their expertise from shoulders to hips, to feet to ankles. They do a great job from head to toe and they take great interest in their patients. Before Optim took over the ownership of the hospital my wife and I had to drive into Savannah to use the hospitals depending on the problem, but thankfully now, this has been a big plus for our county to be able to get almost everything taken care of right here. The staff in its entirety is great from Physical Therapy to their Nurses. It’s just a well thought out program.

From a community standpoint, having the hospital in our rural area has been very beneficial. There are a lot of people that have been given the chance to get health services that might not have been able to get the attention that they get in Reidsville just based on the difficulty in transportation and gas prices.   Read More


Tom Avret, Knee Replacement & Arthroscopy

I have recommended Optim to a lot of people, and will continue to do so. All I have is praise for my care with Optim Healthcare.

I have had problems with my knee since I was a senior in high school back in 1955 and I had to finally get surgery three years later when it compounded, at the old University Hospital in Augusta.  Years later, I had knee arthroscopy done on the other knee by John George, MD at St. Joseph’s Candler. He did such a great job and I have not had any problems with that knee for over 15 years. Unfortunately, four years ago the knee that I had my first surgery on back in 1958 starting acting up again. It was extremely painful and so I decided to go back to see Dr. George. We decided that a total knee replacement was necessary, so he performed my surgery at Optim Medical Center-Tattnall.  Read More
