Surgeon G. Blaine Bishop, Jr., M.D. FACS FASCRS

“As a child with asthma, I quickly learned of the power to heal possessed by my pediatrician. This awareness, coupled with a life-long fascination with human anatomy/physiology, led to my choice of surgery as a career. I believe that God is honored by excellence in the operating room and by compassionate care of people as individuals. It is exciting for me to have the privilege of helping others and to do so with the assistance and encouragement of trustworthy, partners and staff.”
