OrthoAtlanta physician, Todd A. Schmidt, MD, was honored to serve as the Doctor of the Day at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday, January 29, 2020.
While there, he had the opportunity to meet with Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan, Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives David Ralston, and several members of the Georgia Senate and House of Representatives including Senator Kay Kirkpatrick.
The Doctor of the Day program is a non-political service of the Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) serving Georgia legislators. Doctor of the Day volunteers work in the Medical Aid Station at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta during the legislative session each year. They provide minor medical care to legislators and their staff at no charge, and they are introduced in the House and Senate at the beginning of each legislative day.
Every year, the Georgia Orthopedic Society (GOS), participates in the MAG Doctor of the Day program by providing volunteers for a two-week block. In 2020, OrthoAtlanta physician participants included Dr. Snehal Dalal, President-Elect of the Georgia Orthopedic Society and Dr. Todd Schmidt, GOS Past President (2010-2011).
Dr. Schmidt is an orthopedic surgeon fellowship trained in sports medicine and surgery of the shoulder. He serves patients at the OrthoAtlanta Stockbridge office.
