My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a primary care physician and a personal physician, I believe each patient deserves my undivided attention when they come into my office. Medicine is a partnership and is negotiated between one person and their doctor. I work with patients from Athens, Watkinsville, Commerce, Winder and Lavonia to help them achieve optimal outcomes in health and in life. The goals we seek to meet are the patient’s personal goals and are different for everyone. I am devoted to the MDVIP personalized care model because it allows me to practice medicine the way it should be practiced and to help improve the lives of my patients.

My internal medicine practice is located in Watkinsville, Georgia, and serves the counties of Oconee, Clarke, Jackson, Bartow and Hart. I am affiliated with Piedmont Athens Regional and St Mary's Hospitals.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Rigsby

from Julie in GA May 6, 2020 for William E. Rigsby, MD

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. William Rigsby for over 10 years. Dr. Rigsby is the most caring, thorough doctor we could ever ask for. Even prior to joining the MDVIP Program, Dr. Rigsby spent time with his patients, learning about who they are and how their bodies work. Now that he is part of MDVIP, it is a dream to have him as our doctor. He truly is the small town doctor that… See more

I have been a grateful patient of Dr William Rigsby for over 20 years. His training, dedication and attention to detail is the second reason why I am alive today. On a routine physical he detected unusual skin patterns and referred me to a friend dermatologist. I was biopsied twice to then determine it was cancer. I caught it early and I am being treated today. The first reason why I am alive… See more

from RONALD in GA February 27, 2018 for William E. Rigsby, MD

Dr. Bill is one big story. He always has time for Barb and I whether we need him at the office or at his home. His knowledge of interaction of drugs is of the utmost value.
