Dr. Omari Hodge is a family physician in Northeast Georgia where he also serves as faculty in a residency program. As a Christian and Black male physician, Dr. Hodge has learned that the way to view something is directly correlated to the angle from which you stand. This can be at times humbling, at times humiliating and still at other times awe- inspiring.

Dr. Hodge and his wife Kiera of 23 years have found that their faith in Christ and dedication to his work have both sustained and provided for them. Reconciliation is at the heart of God’s call for their lives. In all that they do their first priority is helping people reconcile to Christ and secondly to their neighbors, especially those of different ethnicities and cultures. Dr. Hodge serves on the CMDA R2ED (Racism, Reconciliation, Equality and Diversity) Committee to advance biblical principles to improve the quality of lives for all created in God’s image. He enjoys missions trips, traveling and spending time with his wife and four children.
