Anyone who went to Physicians Immediate Med in Hiram or Acworth may have noticed that Dr. Catherine Meredith has left the practice. PIM will not tell patients where she has went because of fear of patients following her. She is an AWESOME doctor!!! She will be working for Wellstar urgent care at Cooper Lake (Smyrna) mostly and the one at East Cobb (only occasionally).

last I heard is that she was at Cedartown hospital in the E.R. She was the best there. And they are right I will follow. Thank you. Is that Urgent care on S.Cobb drive or at Cooperlake and S. Cobb? I have not been to that area in years.
oh, I get those two mixed up but they were the best there. Thank you for posting this.

I have NEVER had even one remotely good experience there (physician's)... It's sad when you go to a place and see two people in the waiting room and know you have a three hour wait and the front office people could care less....

Good for her! If she was there, and she was good, she had to be limiting herself!

If you're looking for a really good urgent care....the one in New Hope is really good. I've taken my kids up there a few times. The wait time is minimal and the staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. :-)

Thanks, with both Dr Catherines gone from Hiram I will try New Hope next time

That is typical practice of any medical facility when a good doctor leaves. Or at least that has been my experience. I have never used the place.

If you are talking about place in Hiram close to North Atlanta Superstore, same here. Waste of time & money. I do not know doctor we saw 1-1/2 years ago but she totally and absolutely misdiagnosed my grandson's illness. Luckily we went to a pediatrician 4 days later where the actual illness was correctly diagnosed, specialist referred and then properly treated.

That Urgent care is horrible, I went there with extremely high blood pressure and they sent me home with BP readings of 180/101. I got sicker later that night and went to emergency room blood presssure was 220/110. The ER doctor said they should have called for an ambulance I should have never been sent home. Will never go back there EVER!!! I could have had a stroke!!

I won't take my son to anyone else. Dr. Mayfield is not complacent as many Dr.'s become over the years. My son has a serious life threatening condition that can quickly turn fatal if he becomes sick. I don't tolerate seeing a NP when he is sick and a casual diagnosis of a viral infection and sent home to treat the symptoms and your done diagnoses could kill him.
Dr. Mayfield is excellent at picking up on symptoms that could point to the beginning of a serious illness. She is better than any GP I have ever been to.

I love Dr. Mayfield!! My oldest daughter went to New Hope Urgent Care a few weeks ago with vomiting and a horrible headache. Dr. Mayfield sent her immediately to the hospital because her right pupil was fixed and dilated. A nurse met her at the ER at Paulding, they did a CAT scan and she had a blood clot behind her eye from a blow from a kickball. They treated her and she's fine. When I think of the alternative outcome that can come from a clot, I shudder.

Unfortunately, a friend of mine recently became ill. Fortunately, Dr. Mayfield was available to see them in a timely fashion. My friend was just as impressed with her as I have been.....we absolutely love her!!!

We liked Dr. Martin at the Doctors Immediate Care in Hiram. Don't know if she's still there, but she diagnosed my wife's shingles and arranged dor an immediate appt. with an Eye Dr.

Second Dr. we saw there recently wasn't as good. Had to go to ER the next day.
