Get to Know the Doctor

Tell me a little about your education and how you became a doctor.

I am truly living a dream. I set out to be a doctor at 5 years old and here I am. My career is more than what I had hoped & prayed for in every aspect. I’m a board certified family medicine doctor with a specialty in geriatrics and palliative medicine. After receiving my  Doctor of Medicine from Morehouse School of Medicine located in Atlanta, GA., I went on to complete my residency at The Medical Center in Columbus, GA. In 2009, I also completed my Fellowship of Geriatric and Palliative Medicine from the Medical Center of Central Georgia located in Mason, GA. I also served in the United States Marine Corps, and I am a veteran of the Gulf War. I became a doctor because I enjoy helping patients & their families in a very important aspect of their lives – their healthcare! I love that I get to help people on a daily basis!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU ARE NOT AT THE OFFICE?

I enjoy traveling and playing a good round of golf. Dr. Gater and I are also spa connoisseurs. We will travel the globe for a great massage!
