About Me

About Dr. David Townsend

I am a very proud husband and father of four amazing children. My family and I recently relocated to this area to be closer to our extended families. We are very excited to make Athens our home. My faith is very important to me. I also enjoy sports (watching and playing) and music. Go Dawgs!


I believe that issues related to one's health do not occur in isolation. Therefore, I believe in a comprehensive approach to medicine, understanding that many factors in life can influence your overall health. I specialize in prevention of disease as well as management of acute and chronic health conditions.
