Everyone was pleasant, helpful, and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Sholes took time to really listen to my concerns, ask me questions and answered any questions I had.

About Dr. Sholes

Dr. Thomas Taylor Sholes MD is a third generation OBGYN. Before he was born, his grandfather and dad had been delivering babies for over 70 years in East Tennessee and North Georgia.

He grew up in Gainesville, Georgia, and went on to study Biology and Biomedical Engineering at The Georgia Institute of Technology. Following undergraduate and medical school, Dr. Sholes did his OBGYN residency training at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia. In his 4 years of OBGYN residency, he was heavily involved in community service and multiple research projects. During residency he met his wife, Emily, a native of the Athens area, helping solidify the decision to move back close to their families and open up a practice.

As a physician who was born, raised, and trained in the state of Georgia, Dr. Sholes is excited about being able to serve the North Georgia area, specifically, Athens, Georgia’s OBGYN needs. Dr. Sholes offers unparalleled personalized Obstetrical care as a solo practitioner and offers his patients easy accessibility to their doctor. Furthermore, if a GYN surgery is indicated, Dr. Sholes is highly skilled in minimally invasive surgical techniques such as hysteroscopy and laparoscopy which enables his patients to spend less days in the hospital and heal faster. Being a new Athens, Georgia OBGYN Dr. Thomas Taylor Sholes M.D. is excited about the opportunity to accept new patients!
