“Dr. Krugman is very knowledgeable, personable, and great bedside manner. Took his time explaining my xray and the reason for my pain. Will recommend him to all of my friends and family.”

“Hello, it's Marie again! I am officially over four months out of surgery and I am doing absolutely phenomenal! I am 100% back to all my skills in gymnastics and I couldn't be happier! My coaches are thrilled to have me out of pain and they even say some of my skills are even better than before (probably because I am out of pain), but all thanks to you. I just wanted to say thank you again for everything you have done for me and allowing me to get through the surgery with ease. I have now had no pain in my elbow/hand for a few weeks now and I am thrilled. So thank you again and I hope all is well for you and everyone else at the Hand Center of Georgia!”

“I have been seeing Dr. Lourie for several years now. First, for surgery to release tension in my paralyzed right arm, and then several times for problems in my left hand, mostly due to overuse, since I only have one hand to do everything with. Dr. Lourie is very respectful and very caring for his patient and their families. All of my experiences have been positive with Dr. :Lourie and his office staff. I would recommend this medical office and physician to others.”

“What a refreshing experience! We were called back before I had finished the paperwork. The assistant told me not to worry that I could finish it in the back. I expected a long wait in the exam room but the doctor appeared promptly. He was personable, articulate, and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Ratnerand their wonderful staff.”

“Dr Peljovich presented me with options, laid out pros & cons of each, and discussed to help me make my decision, both times I've needed to see him. Did not dismiss my fears and concerns.”

“We just have to thank the awesome care we have received at your practice by Dr. Lourie and his staff. The personal care and attention is incredible and we will recommend the practice to anyone. From calling the front desk and speaking with Somulra and Connie Sue, with their professional and upbeat personalities, to dealing with Allie. She is amazing!!! So timely and personal. During my husband's surgery, it was taking longer than I thought and who walked through the front door, but Allie. She found out right away what was going on and she has been an angel from start to finish. She is amazing and seems to be 10 places at once. I hope Dr. Lourie compensates her highly...because people like her are hard to come by. Speaking of people that are hard to come by one of our favorites is Sean. He was a two fold...getting the cast on and getting the cast off. Craig and I are also thinking that Sean is missing his calling in the art arena as he did a masterful job in December with a display of coloring with green and red!!!! Again an asset to the practice and deserves a bonus!!!! And now to another one of our favorite....Brittany. What can I say but AMAZING? We were so impressed when we met her in the office with Dr. Lourie. Enough said. After my husband's surgery, I had answers within very relative time frames. I had access to her. Brittany is a REAL person. She cares, she's there, she showed up in physical therapy to see how my husband was doing ....I can't make this up. Brittany is the real deal. She even gave me access to her on a weekend...that is unheard of. Simply incredible!! In this day and age you can't put a price tag on customer service and this group has the book in the bag. Oh, by the way, we absolutely love Dr. Lourie....didn't think we would forget him did you??? The best bedside manner ever. The man is the easiest to talk to as well. As I said earlier,we will recommend this practice to anyone. Not only because of the incredible medical professional that Dr. Lourie is, but because of the aforementioned staff he employs. Again, many thanks to the entire practice!!”
