About Dr. Thomas McElhannon

I am an Athens native. My grandfather and father were both physicians in the Athens area. I'm married with three children and a member of Athens Church. I spend most of my free time playing with my kids but enjoy the outdoors, gardening, old tractors and UGA athletics.


Several years ago I quit wearing a watch. I wanted to spend my time focusing on patient needs rather than the clock. I believe in working together with patients to let them have a say in their healthcare and medical decision making as much as possible and to do so in an unhurried manner.
