Patient Updates

July 1, 2019


Dear Valued Patient,

As many of you know, I opened my private practice in 1985 and have had great success, thanks to patients like you, over the past 30+ years. In this ever-changing healthcare environment, I have decided to merge with a larger organization to help better manage the practice. Our team will continue to provide your dermatology care as we always have, but now our new group will relieve us from the administrative burdens of the practice, so we can focus solely on what is important — your care.


I am pleased to announce our forthcoming merger with Dermatology Specialists of Georgia effective September 1, 2019. On that date, the combined business will begin conducting our practice as Gardner Dermatology & Med Spa an affiliate of Dermatology Specialists of Georgia & Aqua Medical Spa. Sarah Miller, PA-C, Sandy Singleton, FNP-C and I will continue to operate from our current offices. All contact information for us will remain the same at this time.


We chose Dermatology Specialists of Georgia because they share the same values we do. Our focus will remain on providing top-quality patient experiences, advanced technology, tools and treatments needed for the very best care. Our providers will stay abreast of the latest in dermatological care, consistently training in new technology, in order to bring the safest and most effective methods of treatment to our patients.


If you have any questions about this exciting news and what it will mean for you, please feel free to call our office at (770) 952-2100. Our long-time office manager, Tammy Horton is happy to answer your questions. If you would like to learn more about Dermatology Specialists of Georgia, you may visit their website at We are confident that our new affiliation will serve us all well.
