“This was my first experience with SGMC. I traveled from 2 hours away for my surgery so not only was I nervous but tired. I was greeted by kind, friendly staff at 5:00am. From the time I walked in the doors until the time I was wheeled out at 3:00pm, I was treated with the absolute BEST of care. Dr. James Davis and the team of nurses and OR professionals were AMAZING! Loved my experience and will consider using them for all my future surgical needs!” – Amber E.
