A caring,smart,dedicated gentleman and a wonderful doctor. So glad he takes care of my medical problems!

from Ben March 28, 2017 for John A. Drummond, MD

I have wife and I have been seeing Dr. John Drummond for over 35 years. He has been instrumental in saving both of our lives. Me with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and my wife after giving birth to a still born son in 1981. She developed an infection after the procedure. I can honestly say you have never had a complete physical until you have one from Dr. Drummond. Now both my daughter and son… See more

Good doctor

from Wanda in GA March 14, 2016 for John A. Drummond, MD

I met John Drummond the first month he started his practice at Piedmont. At the time I was working for a plastic surgeon and he came by to introduce his self to our practice. At the time I didn't have a primary physician and there was just something about his kindness and demeanor, that I knew he would be a perfect primary care physician for me. That was over 35 years ago. Not only is he… See more

from Barbara Joy in GA February 10, 2014 for John A. Drummond, MD

Dr. Drummond takes care of my husband and myself whenever we need medical help. If he is not readily available, his staff can always find him and he answers
any questions or helps us with our medical needs. He takes more time with you in
his office than any other doctor we have ever been to. In our opinion, Dr. Drummond is an ace and is very good at what he does.

from Thomas B. in GA February 7, 2014 for John A. Drummond, MD

No great story. But what I want to say is more important: When I ask John Drummond a question I get a prompt answer -- and good answer! What more could one want.

from Charles in GA February 7, 2014 for John A. Drummond, MD

Dr Drummond became my personal physician after I contracted an infection during or after I had my right hip replaced. His expertise, care and attention to detail not only saved my new hip but maybe my life. As soon as I recovered from this ordeal I asked Dr. Drummond if he would be my personal physician. He said yes and for this I will be forever grateful. He has always been there when I… See more

from Cy in GA February 7, 2014 for John A. Drummond, MD

John Drummond is not just a great doctor, he is a great friend. He and his staff are always accessible and go out of their way to accommodate our occasional emergencies. I trust John completely in medical matters and consider myself fortunate that he is my doctor.
