Fred Gaton, MD, Chairman
Physician, Crawford Family Medicine

Dr. Fred Gaton is the kind of doctor most patients dream about. His rural practice is warm and friendly, and his demeanor calm and professional. He is efficient without seeming rushed. Known simply as “Freddy” to some of his long-time patients, his family practice clinic makes you feel like family. It’s the kind of health care that many of us would pay a premium for. But what’s perhaps the most special about Gaton is that many of his patients don’t have to pay for health care at all.

As the sole health care provider for the small central-Georgia town of Roberta (pop. 12,000), Gaton helped to visualize and create Community Health Works, a program that helps uninsured patients with heart disease, diabetes, hypertension  and depression to receive low-cost or no-cost treatment. Because these four conditions are so prevalent in the central Georgia area, Community Health Works focuses on helping uninsured or underinsured individuals who suffer from these conditions get the help they need.
