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

Ratings/Reviews

Very attentive to me as a person. Answered every question I asked about my situation and explained in detail about what was causing my discomfort.. Every one was very pleasant to be around from the front desk to the nurse and doctors.

Dr. Hegarty is caring, compassionate and professional doctor. He is very good at performing procedures such as epidurals and radio frequency ablation (RFA). I highly recommend him to anyone with chronic back pain.

DR HAGERTY AND DR. SCOTT AND STAFF ALIKE. I THANK THE LORD FOR THERE COMPASSIONATE AND CARING SPIRIT. THEY HAVE FINALLY BROKE THROUGH AND FOUND A TRUE WAY FOR MY PAIN . MAY THE LORD BLESS THEM ALWAYS AND THEIR LOVED ONES. GOD BLESS YOU ALL .Ty

Have been a patient of Dr HEGARTY & Scott (his PA) for the past 5 years. Their goal has always been to control my chronic pain from an arthritic back using many different modalities. I’m so grateful for their care these past years. I moved away 6 months ago and have yet to find a pain management specialist that comes even close Dr HEGARTY or Scott. Am very grateful for the good years they afforded me.

Wouldn't go any other place. They are the best..

I have been seeing Dr Hegarty for approx 10 years. Just like all Dr’s, his time is spread thin but when I have a question, concern or changing treatment, Dr Hegarty and his PA, Scott Schniable, STOP and take time to answer my question or explain treatment as well as options. I hope he continues his practice for many years to come, as my condition is chronic and I believe he recommends treatments to the best of his ability addressing my health needs.

Dr Hegarty is very patient friendly.He listens to the patient He is very thorough! Would definitely recommend him.

The best, most empathetic, knowledgeable, and compassionate people, doctors, P.A.'s,nurses, and staff. And I am not just saying that, it's really true!
