Testimonials from patients of Dr. Drummond

from Ginger in GA June 2, 2021 for John A. Drummond, MD

Dr. Drummond has been my physician for well over 20 years and although I wish him and Anne happiness in this next stage of their lives, he will be missed in so many ways. He was always there when I needed him, whether it was after a hip surgery when he checked up on me and caught something that my surgeon had missed that substantially improved my ability to heal quickly and safely or insisting… See more

from Patsy in GA March 25, 2020 for John A. Drummond, MD

Dr. Drummond is the reason I am a member of MDVIP. I was his patient before he became affiliated and I did not want to lose his care and counsel. I have utter confidence in his ability to diagnose and treat and I appreciate that he always communicates clearly- with humor or with seriousness as appropriate. His staff complements him very well. They are all responsive and demonstrate concern for… See more

from Tom and Karen in GA March 22, 2020 for John A. Drummond, MD

We are blessed to have John Drummond as our doctor. He and his staff are always there when we need them and so helpful and responsive. We never worry about medical care and never want to take their attentiveness to us for granted.

Dr. Drummond and his staff are absolutely the best!

from William in GA March 18, 2020 for John A. Drummond, MD

Dr. Drummond, you started treating Ellen and Bill soon after you first opened your office. You saved the live of Flossie Dodge and Tom Stocks, 2 very good friends of ours, We thank you for all the treatment and care you have given us. Over the years you have helped us through surgeries recommending excellent doctors, colds, deaths in our families, and last year Bill's cancer, heart and… See more

from David in GA March 12, 2020 for John A. Drummond, MD

Dr John Drummond’s first review of my family history and issues with lipid control led to a referral to a cardiologist who put me through a diagnostic process. That resulted in cardiac stents and a newly approved cholesterol medication. Five years later my cardiac event risk is nil. Thank you!

from Neville in GA March 11, 2020 for John A. Drummond, MD

You have looked after me for 51 years and you have always gone the extra mile for me.
We can continue hanging in together as we both age !
All the best

Can't recall how many years it has been, but do know it's more than a few decades. What remains clear that through "thick and thin", good times and bad, (and there has been an abundance of both), Dr John Drummond and his most caring staff have always been there. Whatever the problem, whatever the hour, they were but a quick call away. Never mattered how little medical… See more

from Frank in GA March 11, 2020 for John A. Drummond, MD

I am not one to call a doctor frequently and went years on MDVIP rarely communicating or seeing Dr. Drummond. In 2012 , I suffered a heart attack caused by a stopped-up blood vessel. As it turned more complicated, Dr. Drummond had me transferred to Piedmont Hospital from another area hospital. Dr. Drummond was at the Atlanta airport on a Sunday when this went down. He went immediately to his… See more
