I have gone to this hospital for over 20 years (both old & new location). They are the BEST. Never had any complaints. Yesterday, I went to Cartersville Medical Center for a cervical Spinal epidural & realized just how lucky I was to go to Wellstar Paulding. I would NEVER go to Cartersville Medical unless you have to. The quality of care, their thoroughness, & bedside manner are the best I have ever experienced. Highly recommend
