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 better health through wellness and preventive care. In my personalized healthcare practice, I have more 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 also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices. 

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.

I have no “story”, unless you count the times when he’s needed by me or my husband, He’s never too busy and you ALWAYS know that he hears you and you will receive the best care you can receive. I truly trust him with my life and have for over 30 years. There’s not another one like him.

from Steven and Patsy in GA March 19, 2018 for Shannon Mize, MD

Shannon is a long time friend and a wonderful doctor. He has a sixth sense in that he can tell when either of us is not feeling well and will ask about what is going on. He is very knowledgeable and his patience's greatest advocate.

from Larry in GA March 13, 2018 for Shannon Mize, MD

Dr Mize is one of a kind. He has no problem taking time out of his busy day to come and or
bring food,a few kind words and making a difference. Truly a one-of-a-kind doctor who really cares and makes himself available. We are very lucky to have him as our doctor.
