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

made me feel important. .explained what nerves hurt my knee. and how he would fix it.. he didn't say I would be pain free but it would take some of the pain away. any relief of some pain would be a Blessing.

Great group , dr. Hegargty and his crew, thanks for your help.

Dr Hagerty is the best. He takes his time and listens and always tries to find a solution to any problem you may have. Even when I was a self pay he made sure I was charged the minimum. Not a lot of doctors would care about your expense, but he did and I appreciated it greatly. Been seeing him for 10+ yrs now. His staff is wonderful also.

Dr.Hegarty is the best ever, and his staff is very sweet. ❤

I have been a patient of Optim Orthopedics for almost 20 years, in several specialties, but predominantly Pain Management, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I trust these doctors literally with my life and never once have I regretted it. Dr. Hegarty has treated my chronic issues for 14 years, enabling me to live an active and productive life that otherwise would have been impossible. He has my heartfelt gratitude.
