Dr. John Drummond is among the most intuitive, perceptive, knowledgeable and clever physicians I have ever had the luck to experience...
His disposition can be sharp and to the point, and he has reminded me time again of the very famous Dr. House!! He could be his daddy!
I wish John Drummond a total prompt recovery and a very much earned Physician's Day!

from Mary & Bill in GA March 10, 2018 for John A. Drummond, MD

My husband has been seeing Dr. Drummond for 35 or 40 years at the recommendation of my sister. I began about 30 years ago. He is the very best. We have 2 friends who are alive today due to his knowledge and treatment. I don't know anything else to say other than he is the best. His concern , bedside manner, and knowledge is unbeatable. We have been blessed to have been under his care… See more

from Cissy in GA March 7, 2018 for John A. Drummond, MD

Ive had Dr Drummond for my doctor for almost 25 years. We met because I had MRSA. When he notified me of his change to MDVIP, I didnt have to think twice about changing over to keep him as my doctor. He has seen me through so many major crises with such success . I trust him and feel taken care of when I need him. He knows my complicated history, he knows what I worry about, and I can tell him… See more

Dr. J has always been a blessing to my wife and I. We love his dry sense of humor and the looks he can give us over the top of those reading glasses. We overlook his poor undergraduate choice but one cannot be expected to make the best decisions early in life. When I see him each year my personal goal is to try and make him laugh. I know I've got pretty decent material, but he just… See more

from TOM & KAREN in GA March 6, 2018 for John A. Drummond, MD

Dr. John Drummond always goes above and beyond and exceeds our expectations in every way. He has a bias for availability and provide his cell phone number and email address to communicate at all times outside of his office hours. His exemplary service is special and, as an example, despite the fact that he has recently had heart surgery he has been available and attentive to us as patients… See more

A Tribute to Dr. John Drummond

So who can you trust if you can't trust your primary doctor.?..It's all about the trusting relationship that one has with his/her doctor. I trust that Dr. Drummond will be the best diagnostician that he can be when he is reviewing my test results and that he will lead me to the best practitioners to help me deal with my medical issues and he has… See more

from sylvia in GA March 2, 2018 for John A. Drummond, MD

I have only been Dr. Drummond's patient for a little less than a year although my husband has been his patient for many years. Dr. Drummond kindly agreed to become by physician after I was severely ill and had spent two weeks in the hospital. He completely took over my care and oversaw all medications including those prescribed by other physicians that I was seeing at the time. He took… See more

from Elizabeth in GA February 28, 2018 for John A. Drummond, MD
