Cites MCG as one of best hospitals



A recent issue of U.S. News & World Report on America's best hospitals omitted the Medical College of Georgia. I feel that it should be included as one of the best.

My wife and I have been going there for nearly 20 years. We have gotten excellent care at MCG. We started in the dental school. The work they have done, bridges, restorations, dentures, etc. have lasted a long time and have given us good service.

In the hospital part, I had my cataracts done. I am near-sighted and have never had really good eyesight. With Dr. Hull supervising, one student did an implant in 1993 and another student in 1995. Now I can see better than ever. Apparently, there was a small birth defect in one lens that was not found before.

My wife has had excellent care for her diabetes and heart problems. She is doing very well...
