About Dr. Ford

Dr. Ford offers primary care to patients in Emory at Acworth. A board-certified provider in family medicine, she works with patients of all ages, starting as early as newborns. Dr. Ford delivers a full spectrum of preventive care, wellness and chronic disease management. She is particularly interested in supporting women's health, adolescent medicine, integrative medicine, and health disparities.

A native of Detroit, Michigan, Dr. Ford graduated from medical school at Meharry Medical College in Nashville in 2015. She completed her residency at the University of Arizona Medical School in 2018, then moved to Atlanta to join the Emory Healthcare System.

Giving Patients Her Full Attention

"My goal is to be fully present with patients so they have my full attention," Dr. Ford says. "I believe in taking an individual approach to care because I don't think of a patient as just a disease. Also, a condition or disease affects everyone differently, and everyone has a different lifestyle. So, my approach needs to be unique for every patient."

Getting to the Root Cause of Disease

At the core of her work, she says, are her "passion for health and getting to root cause of disease. It's important for me to do more than just manage symptoms. I try to find how we can either prevent further disease or alleviate their condition. I want to get to the root of what's actually happening in their bodies and turn it around."

Offering Mind-Body Medicine

Dr. Ford uses the tools of integrative medicine, basing her recommendations on evidence-based techniques only. If the patient is open to it, she will discuss mind-body medicine including meditation, stress reduction, and guided imagery. She also discusses nutritional changes and exercise as well as supplements.

She values the connection patients have with her as their care provider. "It's important that they feel their doctor cares about them and will listen to their story. That's what I do."
