I am a native of southwest Georgia. I grew up in Albany, where both of my parents were college professors. My undergraduate degree in biology is from Albany State College. I attended Emory University for medical school and my Ob/Gyn residency was completed at the Medical College of Georgia. My wife is also a physician, and we met each other during residency. My first practice experience was with the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) in Cleveland, Ohio. After two years with the NHSC, I was in private practice in Cleveland for three years. The warm weather of my native state brought me back to Atlanta, and I have been in practice here for 16 years. I have two teenage sons and have been at Kaiser Permanente for nine years.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
The Kaiser Permanente Cascade Medical Center is where I see obstetric and gynecologic patients. I practice general Ob/Gyn, and I chose this specialty because of the wide variety of medical challenges I see each day. I like surgery and am constantly amazed at the advances in minimally invasive surgery and office procedures. My practice involves taking care of women during pregnancy and dealing with a wide variety of gynecologic problems. I am also a member of the Kaiser Permanente labor and delivery team at Piedmont Hospital. My goal is to approach each member as an individual and to tailor my treatment plan to her unique circumstances.
Cómo vivo bien
I try to practice what I preach by finding time to exercise at least three to four times per week. I enjoy reading and listening to audiobooks. I like to play golf despite not being very good at it. Spending quality time with my family has always been a top priority for me.
