First, the nursing and rehab staff are the finest around and they all deserve the highest praises. My father received fantastic care in their capable hands.However, there is a SEVERE downside to this facility and that is the staff doctor, Joseph Micca. He's incompetent, unknowledgeable, and is more interested in being mooned over by the nurses than actually tending to patients. Had we not stepped in on my father's behalf and gotten his real doctor involved, it is quite likely my father would not have survived his stay. If your loved one is here, PLEASE be a staunch advocate and do not let Joseph Micca anywhere near them!!! He has no hospital privs, his business address is his home and he's not competent enough to prescribe aspirin!

My mother-in-law was recently in Manor Care for the second time in about five years. The first time was for a broken hip. This time it was for rehab from a stroke. After she broke her hip, we held our breath, hoping that a bed would be open when she was ready to leave North Fulton and begin her rehabilitation. This was based simply on Manor Care's reputation from people we know. After the stroke, we were relieved that she could return to Manor Care, based on our previous experience. Once again, we were very pleased with the level of care and the therapy she received. We have sung Manor Care's praises for a long time and will continue to do so. This facility has the best reputation of any in the Atlanta area. It's not perfect. None of these places are. It is not a nursing home, so don't expect around the clock personal attention. It is not a five-star restaurant, so you might want to bring your loved one some of their favorite food from the outside. Family members need to help their loved one while they stay here. However, if your loved one is in a condition that necessitates them being in one of these facilities, Manor Care will provide outstanding rehab care.

I have found Manor Care to be dirty,unorganized,no communication between family and any of the care providers.No one gives you answers and very hard to find anyone to help you out. Laudrey sevice is provided but you never the the clothes back or it takes 4 days and socks never return. There is such a strong cover up perfumey smell that is sickening when you are there. I have heard the rehab is good but i am still waiting to see the results of that!

Our family member has had 2 stays at Manor Care for rehab. The rehab is very good as long as your overall health is good. Symptoms were overlooked repeatedly and required a repeat visit to the hospital. The day time staff was very good; however the evening and overnight staff were horrid!!! The staff sits chatting while numerous call lights are going off over a 2 hour response time to call lights is unacceptable with bed ridden patients! Life threatening labs were overlooked. We are thankful my loved one survived rehab.

A family member has had two short term stays at this facility. Both times for rehabilitation after a hospital stay. They have one of the best rehabilitation programs in the area. (Not sure if other Manor Care locations are similar.) The big downside to this facility is that the food is extremely unappetizing. I've eaten with my family member or observed several of the meals provided and it is obvious that they are cutting corners. Perhaps they pass the minimum dietary requirements, but my family member didn't eat enough while there due to the quality of the meals.
