My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a family medicine physician, my goal is to use my knowledge, skills, experience and insight to help my patients achieve optimal health through wellness and preventive care. In my personalized healthcare practice, similar to a concierge medical practice, I have the time to get to know my patients beyond their symptoms and care for their unique needs. I enjoy treating the whole person and have special interests in hypertension, diabetes, obesity, lipid disorders and wellness.

I am on staff and have privileges at Northside Forsyth Hospital and make daily rounds for my patients. As a private doctor, I also make rounds for my patients at Chestnut Ridge and Cumming Nursing Center nursing homes. Although my primary care practice is located within the city of Cumming, Georgia, I see patients from Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Lumpkin, Hall, Cherokee and Gilmer counties.

My medical staff and I have been practicing together for the past 32 years and devote the majority of our time to our family medicine practice. Many wonderful friendships have been formed through the years.

I have served as Chief of Staff at Lakeside Hospital and Baptist North Hospital and have been Chief of Medicine at Northside Forsyth Hospital. I also serve as Chairman of the Board of Health of Forsyth County and am a member of First Baptist Church of Cumming. I am an avid reader, exercise daily and have a keen passion for U.S. history, Georgia history and World War II.

from Blaine in GA February 11, 2015 for Shannon Mize, MD

You know that you have pulled me through many health crises and I am grateful to have a physician who has known me and taken care of my health since 1977. Thank God that I was a member of MDVIP when this last hospital stay occurred and you were with me for 12 days. I do trust you with my health decisions and I thank you for your care.

from George in GA February 10, 2015 for Shannon Mize, MD

I have known Shannon for over 60 Years. You can not find a doctor more dedicated to his practice and his patients' care. He is there 24 hours a day to make sure you are receiving the best care available. I know that I can talk to him about anything and he will tell me the trust without holding back. I don't have to worry about my medical needs with Shannon around.

My service is better, now that he dose't have some many patients, and I feel like I get more personal service.
