I recently moved to Douglas from out of state and would like to know if there are any doctors here who will prescribe medication without giving you the third degree. I am almost 70 years old with several chronic illnesses and take medications to sleep and control pain along with blood pressure, cholesterol,etc. meds. I am looking for a doctor that will provide treatment and not treat me like some street corner drug pusher. Thank you.

Dr. David Arnett is one of the finest Dr's in the area. As long as you have a legit reason for needing pain meds, he will give you what you need. But he also warns you about taking them as directed & takes your other medical conditions into account when prescribing any meds that might interfere with other meds. He is a well mannered doctor that truly cares about each of his patients. He always has time to listen to any concerns that you might have concerning your health. He gets an A+ from me.

Dr David Arnett is a great doctor but hasn't taken new patients for several years. Dr Navarro is also a really good doctor. Dr. Dockery in Broxton is a really good doctor but may not take new patients.

I think Rom Nav. is very good. Also, it's a shame Rodney Vickers isn't practicing anymore. I'm no MD, but if I were to get in a car wreck tomorrow, could someone just get 'ol Rodney to scrub in for one last trauma surgery?

yep they get you hooked on pain meds and when they see your hooked they release you as a patient and they say they will doctor you for 30 days but then when you call they wont see you or prescribe your meds so you are left out in the cold without your meds until you can find another doctor. and yes dr arnett is a good doctor but you are right his staff sucks one for sure the red head office manager acts like shes worth a million dollars with her stuck up ass.

WELL I HATE TO DISAGREE WITH YOU RUN...I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO LUCK UP ON A DR. NEW COMER..HIS NAME IS DR. CONRAD HARPER, HE IS VERY THOUROUGH, AND PRECISE, AND I THINK WITH YOU AT YOUR AGE AND BEEN ON THE MEDS WONT BE A PROBLEM..I LOVE HIM TO DEATH...I USED SO CENTRAL PRIMARY FOR YEARS, AND I LOVED THE PA THERE...BUT THAT DR. HAS GOT TO GO........HES JUST NOT PROFESSIONAL IN MY OPINION..
AS FAR AS A SURGEON, I HAD EMERGENCY SURGERY IN MARCH AND DR. BONDAR DID IT AND HE WAS EXCELLENT, ALSO WE HAVE A DR. BAGWELL. HIM NAVARRO AND BONDAR ARE IN THE SAME SURGICAL BUILDING, BAGWELL DID AN AWESOME JOB ON MY CHILD WHEN HE GOT SERVERLY BURNED AND A REMARKABLE SKIN GRAPH, HOPES THIS HELPS YOU

how can you say arnette is agood doctor but does not follow up. that group runs every test they offer for your money and you ar lucky to ever get your results. i also heard they give pain pills and when they realize there is a problem you get kicked out....that is piss poor medical care.the office is mass confusion as evidence dr harper is relocating...probably got tired of all the b.s.

I have heard Dr. Conrad Harper is good, also. The only thing bad about him is, if you have to go to the hospital he will send you to Coffee Regional. That I WOULD NOT WANT! I agree with ItIsME: I have also been highly impressed with the doctors and hospital in Tifton.

Where is Harper going? Had some test there, waited and waited for results. After three long weeks I demanded a report. Nurse said "Hey, no news is good news." Two and a half months later nurse calls and leaves a message. "Your test results show you have a serious problem you need to get into office immediately for report and schedule further test". Needless to say I found another doctor far away from Douglas.

Pam Lee,Board Certified Nurse Practioner at Bacon Co. Com Health Center is great and treats all patients well and actually takes time to talk with you about your condition. The only problem there is one of the nurses, Carla, who goes out of her way to humiliate patients who need to take pain or nerve meds, regardless of how bad they are needed. And she tries to block refills even when they are really indicated.

THATS TERRIBLE OLD DOC. THIS..CARLA..NEEDS TO BE REPORTED TO THE HEAD NURSE OR SOMEONE. WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS? SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE NEEDS TO PUT HER IN HER PLACE.
