Christopher Huckle, DO

Physician of the Month

Dr. Christopher Huckle is a board-certified family and sports medicine physician who specializes in concussion management, as well as shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot injuries. He is specially-trained in ultrasound-guided injections and alternative treatments such as biologic injections. Before coming to Northeast Georgia Health System, Dr. Huckle practiced medicine at Campbell University in North Carolina, where he was responsible for over 500 Division-1 athletes.

Dr. Huckle always shows up with a positive attitude and ready to start the day. His patients see that attitude and appreciate it, as they always want to come back and see him time and time again. He is attentive to his patient’s needs and makes sure they know he has their best interest in mind – patients always feel like they have hope for a positive outcome. It doesn’t’ stop with patients, though. Dr. Huckle treats each and every staff member with respect and is always willing to teach or help those who need it. He’s patient and makes sure everyone he comes in contact with knows they play an important role in patients’ lives.
