Dr. Tippett has been faithfully serving patients for close to 40 years. After completing his residency at the Medical College of Georgia, he opened a private practice in 1979 and was Board Certified by the American College of Physicians in 1980. After 26 successful years, he was recruited by the Medical College of Georgia to join their Physician Practice Group and open a satellite clinic in Lake Oconee.
In 2012, when St. Mary’s Health was in the process of opening their new hospital, Dr. Tippett joined the health system as Medical Director and Internal Medicine Physician. He led the formation of a multidisciplinary team comprised of 17 specialties that served the Lake community and worked to ensure patient health concerns were being addressed.
Dr. Tippett has twice been named Best Doctor in the Lake Oconee area by Lake Oconee Magazine and was named a top 100 doctor internationally by U.S. News and World Report. His professional affiliations and civic and volunteer activities further demonstrate his commitment to improving the quality of life and health of his community.
