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

I really appreciate Dr.Hegarty, Scott, and the team. They take very good care of me and so so in a kind and caring and professional manner. Always attentive to my health needs.

First time visit. Dr. Hegarty took the time and explained what is causing the lower back issues. Highly recommend this doctor.

Having recently relocated from Boston and being treated there for my back problem, my biggest concern was finding a neurologist as attentive and caring as my previous doctor. I was blessed and fortunate enough to receive the same type of attention and care at Optim Healthcare with Dr. Joseph Haggerty.

Dr Hergraty was patient and took time to listen to me and address my needs. I look forward to a continued relationship

Dr. Hegarty is the best. I was really suffering from knee replacement and he listened and came up with a plan to figure out what was going on. He soon realized through testing that Much of my pain was coming from my back. I can not thank him enough for the care he is giving me. Highly recommend him.

Dr. Hegarty is an amazing physician, truly cares about his patients. He has a vast knowledge in all areas of medicine and educates you on the diagnosis in an almost a team approach. He’s approachable, kind, offers spectacular treatment, always the pros and cons of different treatments

good staff . doctor hagerty is very caring and has your best interests at heart and he takes the time to listen. He is a life saver and I could not survive with out him I am going to tell all my friends on Hilton Head about him !

To me the front desk people, staff, PA-C Scott Schnainble and Dr. Joseph Hegarty show the most concern for their patients health, wellness and well being.
