I never had the privledge of meeting Dr Mullins,even though I am very familar with the burn unit at doctors hospital..I was in the old burn unit for about 7 months in 1981..Dr joseph Still was my Doctor at that time. I think in todays world we use the words Hero and Love so often about everything and everbody..that they realy dont mean to much anymore. I do believe that if any one who has ever met these two men,and seen how many lives they have saved..then you would truly would have met Hero's.God bless Dr Mullins..Dr Still and the entire burn unit at Doctors Hospital.

Fred took care of my husband almost 3 years ago during the 5 weeks he spent at the burn center. His compassion, kindness and skill as a surgeon were beyond compare. I like, thousands of others we lucky to have him heal my husband and we will forever hold him in our hearts. My prayers and condolences are with his family and all who loved him.

To Dr. Mullins family, my heart is still heavy as I type my condolences. I am at a loss for adequate words to express my thankfulness for Doctor Mullins. What doctor cares enough to give you their personal cell phone number? Dr. Mullins! I will never forget this wonderful man of God. My son is still alive today because if his medical expertise and his God-given ability. I wish Doctor Mullins didn't have to leave so soon. Prayers for all that loved and cared for Doctor Mullins.

I too was a current patient of Dr. Mullins. It amazed me that Dr. Mullins could be in ER/admitting so late in the evening and be back so very early the next morning making rounds and operating. Such a fine man with a passion for compassion and a drive to match. It seems Jehovah Rapha had poured a Devine amount of healing power into Dr. Mullins and I am more grateful for that than I can properly express. I praise the LORD for Dr. Mullins. I pray that Jehovah Shalom will hold all of Dr. Mullins family and friends and the rest of us closer than ever as long as its needed.

bout 15 or so years ago, I was having dinner with some family members at Calvert's when my father began choking on his steak. Multiple people including Dr. Mullins (who was at the next table with several others including Joe Still) attempted the Heimlich (sp) to no avail. My father was so close to death when Dr. Mullins preformed an emergency tracheotomy on the floor of the restaurant and saved my dad's life. I will never forget that.

I am one of those he helped save. It was earlier this year when I was airlifted to JMSBC with necrotizing fasciitis from Savannah. Dr. Mullins performed numerous procedures on my leg. Today I am walking without assistance because of him. I am eternally grateful. My sincere condolences to his family and JMSBC. I pray God's comfort and peace for you.

Dr. Mullins was a most remarkable person as well as a great doctor. As I was in the ICU unit at Doctors Hospital in September, 2017, my husband remembers him sitting next to him and with my husband quite worried, asked him about who should he contact to check on her. Dr. Mullins said look at your phone. You call me. I am your contact. I was at the hospital for at least 4 weeks and he never failed to answer my husbands call. Also for the year after that when I was still in his care. I know he saved my life. He treated all his patients the same and with dignity. I have never met a more caring doctor. He was truly extraordinary. Just a real human being that loved people. He will be missed greatly.

I was very saddened to hear this news. Since then I have heard from a number of people I know with stories of how much he helped them or a family member or friend. All the people walking around whose lives were helped or saved because of him are a living tribute that few people in this world will ever have. He is certainly gone too soon, but will be long remembered for the good he did. My sincerest condolences to Freds family, friends, and colleagues.

Was Dr Fred Mullins a son of Dr Frank Mullins, a Pathologist whose home was in Evans, Georgia? Dr Frank Mullins had exactly the same personal concern and care as Dr Fred Mullins as evidenced by his concern and care for my Father during the last week of his life in 1962. Dr Frank Mullins was tragically killed when his plane crashed during bad weather in the last half of the 60s. He and I became great friends and I miss him greatly.
