BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Feb. 25, 2009 – Southeast Georgia Health System
is pleased to welcome back radiation oncologist and former director of
the Brunswick Campus Radiation Oncology Department, chairman of the Cancer
Committee and vice chair of the radiology department Timothy Jamieson,
MD, PhD. Jamieson joins Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Radiation
Oncology, a strategic affiliate of Southeast Georgia Health System, and
fellow radiation oncologists Bruce Tripp, MD, and Kenyon Meadows, MD.
Jamieson, who is board certified in radiation oncology, completed his undergraduate
degree in chemical engineering from Pennsylvania State University and
earned his medical degree and PhD in microbiology from the University
of Virginia School of Medicine. He completed his residency in radiation
oncology at Duke University Medical Center where he was chief resident
and was the winner of the American Radium Society’s Young Oncologist
Award. He joined the medical staff at the Health System’s Brunswick
Campus in 1999 where he served for nine years before accepting the position
of medical director of radiation oncology at the Virginia Hospital Center
in Arlington. While at Virginia Hospital, he was recognized by the magazine
Northern Virginia as one of the top radiation oncologists in the state.
Although Jamieson says he enjoyed his time in Virginia, he is looking
forward to returning to the Georgia coast.
“I really missed interacting with the doctors at the Health System
and working with the staff at the Cancer Care Center,” says Jamieson
about his return. “My family and I also missed living in Georgia.
I’m excited to get back—cancer care is really in the forefront
at the Health System and I’m looking forward to helping grow the
program, in particular, building the accelerated partial breast irradiation
program - I have done more than 70 cases in Virginia.” Jamieson
says this procedure allows radiation oncologists and their medical teams
to treat patients with early stage breast cancer in just five days instead
of the usual seven weeks. He will also resume his working relationship
with the Coastal Medical Access Project (CMAP) where he served as chairman
for five years.
Jamieson is returning to his home on St. Simons Island along with his wife
Michele and their four children, Turner 9, Henry 7, George 2, and Isabella 1.
Although his return date is March 16, the Southeast Georgia Health System
Cancer Care Center is already scheduling appointments for Jamieson. To
make your appointment or for more information, call 912-466-5100.
