Getachew Iyasu, MD

Physician of the Month

Dr. Getachew Iyasu is a provider with Northeast Georgia Physicians Group specializing in Hospital Medicine. He earned his medical degree from Addis Ababa University and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Atlanta Medical Center.

Dr. Iyasu is a dependable physician – always there for patients and staff. He doesn’t work easy shifts, but always completes them with a smile, and even takes on extra work when needed. He works well and is patient in teaching resident physicians. In stressful and unexpected situations Dr. Iyasu comes through – like when pipes burst during the holidays and patients had to be moved. He jumped into quick action and kept every patient safe. He’s a true example for all of those around him.

Samantha Wilson, PA

Samantha goes above and beyond for her patients and coworkers. She’s always willing to lend a helping hand, no matter what is needed.

And in her spare time, she somehow finds a way to bake goodies and bring them in to staff.
