Maureen Ray, Back Surgeries, Elbow Surgery

I have come to know Optim Healthcare very well over the last two decades; 2 back surgeries from being on my feet constantly, 1 elbow surgery from a fall and 2 cochlear implant surgeries from losing my hearing over 30 years ago.

My lack of hearing finally forced me to retire in 2009 and three years later, I decided to talk to someone to see if they could help in anyway. I met with Dr. Goldsmith and he decided my best option was to get two cochlear implants. I only had 45% hearing in one of my ears and the other one was 0%. I can’t even put into words what Dr. Goldsmith has done for me with the cochlear implants. Read More

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

The best pain management Doctor on the Eastern seaboard. I have been treated previously in New York and New Jersey and Dr. Hegarty wins hands down.

Very compassionate. Listens to you.

I was in pain and Dr. Hegarty asked questions about where, was there a fall and does it bother you standing or sitting. He looked at my MRI and decided what I needed. I got an injection into the sciatic joint, which took away the pain quickly. He explained two other procedures that I need. I was given a date for the first procedure while I was in the office. He is very caring and procedures he has done on me have not hurt. He is very good at what he does. I place my full trust in his ability to care for me.

I absolutely recommend Dr. Hegarty to anyone in need of a pain management Doctor. He is always friendly and very professional. You can truly tell that he is concerned about you and wants to help you in anyway he can. He is a blessing.

First time there and was not rushed out of office. Dr Hagerty listened to what I had to say and explained all of my choices to ease the pain. Very professional and would recommend him to any one who had pain from injuries

Doc answered all my questions without any hesitation he did not rush me thru my appointment .made sure I didn't have any more needs thanks dr

Definitely encourage people to contact Dr Hagerty for pain management. He is straight forward and truly has the patients interest at heart

A very nice bedside manner - very knowledgeable and helpful - he has recommended and tried other pain relief options - I don’t leave his office feeling like I have to accept my fate – I leave feeling hopeful

Dr Hergraty was patient and took time to listen to me and address my needs. I look forward to a continued relationship. He has a beautiful smile and a soul of compassion for his patients

Great Doctor!!! Highly recommend.
