Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

Dr. Womack has been treating me for 20 years. His knowledge is absolutely second to none. He is a kind and caring man and I am incredibly lucky to be able to have a resource such as him available for the treatment of my severely damaged left ankle. He is an excellent physician and you can ask for no one better to advise you on an injury.

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

Dr. Womack is one of the best orthopedic doctors in Atlanta. I can say that with confidence given that he has performed surgery on myself and family members. I healed very well, was treated in a hospital that didn't charge an crazy amount (like Emory or Piedmont), and and was treated well after surgery. Dr. Womack is very knowledgeable and unlike many doctors he has an excellent bedside manner. He is busy but he has always taken the time to answer my questions. A friendly, knowledgeable, and skilled surgeon and doctor, it's hard to find better.

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

I twisted my knee at work. After going to a workman comp doctor and him telling me that nothing was wrong. I kind of got discouraged. I ask my workman comp insurance rep to find me another doctor. She then sent me to Resurgens Orthopaedics Dr. Womack. From the first day I met him I knew I was in good hands. He explained everything to me from beginning to end.... He takes his time with his patients and he really cares about your well being. He is really good at what he does. HE IS A GREAT DOCTOR!
