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

I’ve been a patient with optim for many years. My experiences with this practice have always been top notch!!! I see Dr. Joseph Hegarty for pain mngmnt. He listens, and truly cares about his patients. His staff and nurses give me nothing but outdstanding patient service!!!

Dr Hegeraty is always compassionate and listens to my concerns always time to go over them never in a hurry.

Everybody is so friendly when I come there I'm in a lot of pain so I move a little slower and they are very patient my doctor is always on point everything that he's telling me to do it's working what we need to do next like a partnership and I love it I will recommend it to anybody who's constantly in pain 😘😘😘😘

Everyone was very Pleasant and on time.

Dr Hegarty is a blessing to me. My car accident left my back in constant pain for years and never had a full night's sleep the whole time. Dr. Hagertys expertise has finally brought relief from the pain and joy back into my life. He is very professional and to the point. After my suffering, believe you me, he has mu respect as a leader in his field.

Everything, Great Dr . And great staff. LOVE that place.

Mark Spivey replaced both of my knees(not at the same time) but both times I could walk out of the hospital by myself!!!!! I have used other doctors there with success. I have been seeing Dr. Joeseph Hegarty with Optim for several years . He has really lived up to his profession!! He has helped me more than any other doctor did. I plan to see him for many more years. Thank you Optim and Dr. Spivey.
