In July, Family Care Magee will welcome Dr. Amanda Cooley as a full time family care physician in conjunction with Dr. Rita Redd.
Dr. Cooley is a native of Vancleave, Mississippi, and attended the University of Southern Mississippi where she majored in biological sciences with minors in chemistry and psychology. She then attended medical school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
“I’ve always loved learning and science, and I also enjoy working with and helping people one on one,” said Cooley. “Knowing that I could do both of those things as a doctor motivated me to pursue a career in medicine.”
Cooley said she is excited to begin working in Magee and become a part of the community.
“My favorite aspect of being a doctor is building relationships with my patients and their families and having the privilege to take care of them through both good and hard times,” said Cooley.
Beginning July 19, Dr. Cooley will be taking patients at Family Care Magee, located in the Tuscan Towers next door to Magee General Hospital. To book an appointment with her, patients can call 601-439-0635.
