William Tauxe, MD

I attended Yale University for my undergraduate work and Pace University for graduate school. I attended Emory University for medical school and completed my residency at Piedmont Columbus Regional Hospital.

I love helping people live their best, healthiest lives. I like to meet people where they are and help them make good choices for the future. As a former schoolteacher I particularly enjoy working with growing families.

I try to get at least 150 minutes per week of moderately vigorous physical activity along with lifting weights twice a week. I eat a balanced diet, enjoy beans, and avoid excessive red meat or refined sugars. I am lactose intolerant and drive a 1983 El Camino.
