from Don in GA February 24, 2014 for William E. Rigsby, MD

Dr. Rigsby is superior in all aspects. Dr. Rigsby has been my doctor for a number of years prior to his affiliation with MDVIP. Difference with the before and after is the time limitation the doctor has with the patient. Dr. Rigsby takes the time he deems necessary and to fulfill patient needs.

I switched to Dr. Rigsby years ago when my former PCP not only didn't support my choice to have weight loss surgery but was rude about it.

When the money came available for me to have a gastric sleeve surgery, Dr.… See more

Dr. Rigsby is truly a knowledgeable and caring professional.

from Robert in GA February 10, 2014 for William E. Rigsby, MD

Dr. Rigsby diagnosed a disorder I have 17 years ago that three other Doctors could not diagnose. In the time since then, he has been not only an excellent Doctor for me and my family, but also a good friend.

from Lillian in GA February 9, 2014 for William E. Rigsby, MD

Dr. Rigsby looks at me as someone who needs as mush time as I need to discuss my medical problems. I never had a doctor who listened to me with such attention and researched my medical problems determined to find results. He researches medications and lets me take as much time as I need to discuss my concerns and problems. There are time when we had over 2 hours to discuss, physical exams,… See more

from J R in GA February 9, 2014 for William E. Rigsby, MD

It's great to have a Dr. that knows who you are, not just what's on your chart. Dr. Rigsby is as concerned about what's going on in my life and how these things relate to my healthcare and wellness as he is with lab results and that cursed scale!

from Steve in GA February 7, 2014 for William E. Rigsby, MD

Dr. Rigsby is a wonderful physician and healer. Bill cares a great deal about each individual under his care. He has made not only a difference in the life of myself, but my family as well.

from RONALD in GA February 6, 2014 for William E. Rigsby, MD

My wife and I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Rigsby. He has balanced and fine tuned our medications over the years to the point of perfection. Both of us feel younger than our years show on our records. He keeps up to date with the latest medical transitions so that he can monitor his patients health problems. Many kudos to our doctor.
