George Mead, MD earned his undergraduate degree at Tennessee Tech University and his medical degree from the University of Tennessee at Memphis. Dr. Mead has been associated with Putnam Radiology since 1991 and is a founder of Premier Diagnostic Imaging.
Dr. Mead always knew that he would be a doctor, but even from the beginning it has never been 'about the money'. "One of my motivations in becoming a doctor and studying harder in school was the many jobs I have had. When I was very young, I sold worms and vegetables that I grew on my own. By age 12, I had hoed a cornfield for a farmer who had lost his old donkey and worked as a brick mason's 'mudman'. I progressed to working every summer, whether it was a paper route, roofing houses, or construction. Compared to all these hard jobs, studying seemed a lot easier, so that was what I did."
"I have incredible loyalty to this community where I've raised a family, coached sports, and go to church. Patients and referring physicians are not just customers, they are friends. Premier is here for the long haul, and we are committed to providing quality health care. It is personal!"
