Dr. Needham practices full-service family medicine to a diverse patient base, providing care from “conception to resurrection” and all stages in between. He has taught medicine for 19 years and performs many outpatient procedures — including skin procedures, vasectomies, NPLs, treadmill stress tests, joint injections, and colposcopies — in addition to many inpatient procedures. In 2013, he received the Full-Time Florida Family Physician Educator award, and he has previously received the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians Teacher of the Year and the Parke-Davis Teacher awards. Regarding the future of family medicine, Needham states that "prevention must be valued and funded to the same level — or greater — than tertiary hospital-based procedures."
