Dr. Jeffrey Metts, Chief of Medicine at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan, Georgia, oversees medicine for all inpatients and for non-oncology outpatients at the hospital. He previously served the hospital as Chief of Intake Medicine and Medical Director of Patient Intake Services.
Dr. Metts earned his medical degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville, Florida, as well as a master’s degree in public health, maternal and child health, from Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana.
He completed his residency at Thomas Jefferson University and Drexel University College of Medicine, both in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before serving as Chief Medical Resident at Drexel University College of Medicine.
Prior to joining CTCA at Southeastern Regional Medical Center, Dr. Metts spent four years running a successful internal medicine private practice with Saint Agnes Medical Group in Baltimore, Maryland. At the same time, he served as a hospitalist at CTCA at Eastern Regional Medical Center in Philadelphia.
“I was very happy in my practice developing long-term relationships with my patients and guiding them through both acute and chronic illnesses,” said Dr. Metts. “However, I felt such a strong connection to the mission of CTCA that I continued my relationship with them as well.”
In addition to his medical practice, Dr. Metts enjoys sharing his knowledge with others. He spent time as an assistant professor of medicine at Drexel University College of Medicine, as well as at Florida State University College of Medicine. He also volunteered on various committees, such as the Resident Education Committee and Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee at Drexel University College of Medicine, and he served as a member of the Captain of the Ship Committee at Sacred Heart Health Systems.
In his free time, Dr. Metts enjoys being a husband and father. “Spending time at home or watching my children play soccer is one of the most rewarding things I can imagine,” said Dr. Metts. “I believe this forms my foundation for patient care, as my goal is to see all my patients have these same types of opportunities with their families and loved ones.”
