About Dr. Shearin Murphy-Higgs

In the State of Georgia, you can easily find an internist to fix a problem, but you would be hard-pressed to find an internist with as diverse of a background and approach as Dr. Shearin “Dez” Murphy-Higgs. Dr. Murphy-Higgs’ approach to medicine exists in the balance between evidence-based practice and compassionate patient care. As a board-certified internist, Dr. Murphy-Higgs brings notable expertise in cardio-vascular disease, critical care, diabetes, hypertension and geriatrics. He has strong interests in progressive business strategies that seek to improve patient-care, and increase practice efficiencies. After completing his undergraduate degree (Biology with Honors) from State University of Albany, New York, Dr. Murphy-Higgs received his medical degree from The Ohio State University (Columbus, Ohio). It was at Ohio State that Dr. Dez became familiar with the Buckeye Motto, “Disciplina in Civatatem.” This quite literally means “Education for Citizenship.” This mantra effectively summarizes Dr. Murphy-Higgs’ approach to patient care. He doesn’t want to be remembered as the one who kept throwing cups of water on a forest fire, but rather, the one who got to the source of the fires, and figured out methods of forest fire prevention. Dr. Murphy-Higgs completed his medical residency at Temple University Hospital (Philadelphia, PA), subsequently serving as Chief Resident in Internal Medicine (2002-2003). His experiences as Chief Resident, and as an Instructor of Internal Medicine at Temple University, were both big turning points in his medical practice. He learned the importance of patience inside the scope of his patient’s health. This encouraged a more well-rounded medical education and approach to his practice.
