    All the replies were in reference to Dr. Bullecer, and were very complementary :)
    Here they are:
  • We used Dr. May for our aunt. She was great. She is very persistent with finding
    out the problem and working to correct it.
  • Dr. Bullecer is great! We moved my grandfather up here to live with us a few years back.
    He used her while he was still here. He was a little hesitant to see a female doctor
    at first, but her bedside manner and knowledge won him over. I would take him to see
    her most of the time, and they allowed me to be with him during his visits. She was
    very attentive and never seemed to feel rushed, like some doctors do. The office staff
    was also friendly and easy to work with.
  • Dr. May has been my dr for 4 years and is an excellent dr. Her husband, Dr. Paradella, also
    works with her. I have seen both of them and both are very good. It has always been
    easy for me to get an appointment and they are very thorough.

Also, there was a caregiver workshop held last month that I wasn't able to attend but I listed the details for
those who want to know about these local resources. If anyone has any experience with these organizations
I would be interested in your feedback.
  • I USE JONES/GILBERT IN WATKINSVILLE BUT THEY MAY NOT BE TAKING NEW PATIENTS.
  • I have a friend who takes her mother to Raymond Gilbert in Watkinsville and she says he is wonderful with her mother.
    His number is 769-4852 and I am taking my father to him as soon as I can get an appointment.
  • Paul Broun is in private practice now and he is wonderful and kind of specializes in geriatric patients.
  • We use Dr. Amanda Downs in Watkinsville as a GP and Dr. Novey on Baxter street for the Alzheimer treatment and
    we love both of them.
  • Dr. Chesser and he is great with my mother. I just hope you can get an appt.
  • Dr. Steven Chesser. My mother has dementia and I started taking her to him. He is magnificent.
