I found Dr. Long to be cold and impassionate. She never listened to any of my concerns. I repeatedly stated my issues and she kept trying to treat me for other non problematic issues. The office staff is incompetent. I only had two appointments with the mannequin, so my opinions may be limited. On my second office visit I had an emergency which I communicated to the receptionist. Before I got to the first traffic light a threatening message was left on my phone. I do not like threats from people whom I pay their salary. Two weeks later another message was left with more threats, to say the least I never returned to the office. She never touched me for the exam and barely looked at me; for the help she gave me I could have gone to a Publix's Clinic. Maybe she is just not used to treating people unlike herself. I will not recommend any one to see her. Her visits left me feeling frustrated and dirty.

Dr Long is our family physician and has been for several years. We followed her from her previous assignment to Piedmont Physicians Group due to her caring nature, knowledge and patient handling skills. There have been times when she needed more information so she sought out a medical journal to research immediately while we were still in the room. We find her to be genuine, caring, informed, allows us to ask questions and never makes us feel like she is in a hurry to get to the next patient. We regularly refer others who are seeking a ‘Top Shelf' PCP to her and explain all the qualities as best possible. When we move out of Atlanta, loosing Dr. Kathryn Long will be one of the sad points.

Dr. Long is a family praticioner with no ambition of learning more than she already knows. She never bothered to educate herself on a genetic immunodeficiency I have had all my life, and as such, never treated me as a patient whose immune system was comprimised. When I called to ask her about weight loss options, she never spoke to me or had me come in to discuss it, she just immediately referred me to an endocrinologist. Funny side note, because I hadn't been seen by Dr. Long for weight loss options, there was nothing in my record about it and the endocrinologist would not set me an appointment. Talk about the run around. If you never get sick or injured, or you only get the usual colds and falls, Dr. Long is fine. But if you have any medical oddities, look elsewhere.
