Poor Staff Performance

We were very impressed with Dr. Northup knowledge and attention during initial office visit. The office staff on the other hand lacked even the most basic office skills, their scheduling of a procedure wasn't scheduled accordingly with the hospital we were told to go to. The procedure was do to be perform early morning but we ended up not being seen until 5 1/2 hours later after our appointment time. The office staff never provided the address to the hospital without my asking them for the address and no reminder/confirmation call about the procedure appointment was made. Needless to say, 5 other patients along with us were put in this situation without having been informed of the mistake the office girls had made and we all ended up wasting a full day waiting to be seen. Very upsetting and unprofessional.

Unhappy patient

I have been seeing Dr. Northup for the past 5-6 years, but lately he does not see his regular patients, instead he pushes them to be seem by his PA. The PA always has 2 go 2 him 2 ask questions, she is not knowledgeable enough to make medical decisions. I am not happy not being seen by the doctor himself.

Best Doctor and Staff in Savannah.

smartest Doctor I have ever known listens to your problems and know what to do fix them. Very kind and easy to talk to really cares about his patients. He has been my Doctor for about 2 years. His front desk staff were not so good about 1 year ago. The girls there now are much better. He has excellent administrative staff and they always speak well of him. I really like his new PA Jesse she is very smart and sweet.
