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
