Philosophy: "My family physician began caring for me from a young age. He was a physician to my grandparents, my parents, as well as my brother and me. More than that, however, he was a friend, a mentor, and like a member of our family. For any and all problems, medical or not, he would lend a hand. This is the type of physician that I constantly strive to be. Someone who treats the whole person and is willing to go the extra mile for any individual in need."

Philosophy: "I strive to create a therapeutic environment of trust with compassion and communication. I encourage my patients to ask questions and explore more about their diagnoses. I want to practice medicine while keeping my patients in the driver's seat of their care."

Jonathan Wilson, MD
Medical School: Medical College of Georgia
Undergraduate: Covenant College

Philosophy: "My favorite author Wendell Berry says that physicians “are properly obliged to acknowledge and respect the holiness embodied in all creatures, and that our healing involves the preservation in us of the spirit and breath of God.” It is my goal to treat each patient like I would a member of my own family, to love my neighbor as myself. Family medicine provides an avenue to sustainable, evidence-based, efficient care encompassed in an honest relationship that will ultimately result in healthier patients, families, and communities. I'm humbled to be a small part of this process of restoring health and wholeness, so that my neighbors are empowered to lead fruitful and full lives."
