April 26, 2021 – Southeast Georgia Health System is pleased to welcome
board-certified internal medicine physician,
Brandi M. Wynne, M.D., to
Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Primary Care.
From a young age, Wynne knew that she wanted to go into the medical field.
“When I was fourteen, I enrolled in a health occupations class and
discovered a passion for it,” Wynne says. “I fell in love
with the idea of meeting new people and making a difference in their lives.”
After graduating from the University of Georgia with her bachelor’s
degree in biochemistry, she worked for two years with George Walker, M.D.,
a nephrologist in private practice in Eastman, Georgia. Under his mentorship,
she gained early exposure to treating kidney diseases before even attending
“Dr. Walker was a major influence in my chosen specialty. What began
as a month-long shadowing program turned into a full-time position in
his practice,” says Wynne. “With him, I gained invaluable
hands-on experience in the medical field. I learned the roles of receptionist,
phlebotomist and nurse, obtaining vitals from patients. It’s probably
why I went into medical school already comfortable interacting with and
listening to patients.”
Wynne earned her medical degree from Mercer University School of Medicine
in Macon. She completed her internship and residency training in internal
medicine at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. She also completed
fellowship training in nephrology while at the University of Alabama.
Prior to joining the Health System, Wynne treated patients at Taylor Regional
Hospital in Hawkinsville and Meadows Regional Hospital in Vidalia.
Wynne sees adult patients for a variety of chronic diseases, with an emphasis
on nephrology, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, geriatrics,
chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, coronary
artery disease and congestive heart failure. She describes her approach
to practicing medicine as a patient-centered partnership.
“It’s important to me to get to know each patient on a personal
level, to learn their family and personal history as well as their medical
history, because everything ties into overall health and wellness,”
says Wynne. “The relationship I have with patients is a partnership,
so communication is key. I don’t want to dictate what they do; whatever
treatment we try should be decided in a conversation.”
“Plus, I’m a people person,” Wynne adds. “I find
great satisfaction in getting to know my patients, determining the cause
of their ailment, developing a treatment to ease their suffering, and
witnessing them improve over time. Nothing is better than seeing a patient
on a return visit, healthier and happier than before.”
A Georgia native, Wynne and her husband, Robert Peacock, frequently vacationed
on St. Simons Island before relocating permanently to the Golden Isles.
They now live in Waverly and soak in the beauty of each sunrise over the
marsh. Peacock owns Advanta Clean, a water and mold restoration franchise
in Brunswick, and is looking forward to expanding his entrepreneur enterprise
into a contracting company.
In her free time, Wynne enjoys the outdoors with her family, which includes
her husband, their four-year-old son, Wynn Peacock, and her step-children,
Kate Peacock, age 14, and Will Peacock, age 12. Lately, she’s been
decorating their new home and listening to financial podcasts, because
she’s “always interested in listening and learning something
