About Dr. Timothy Helton

I encourage my patients to take an active role in their healthcare by encouraging them to exercise and eat healthy. I take a special interest in sports medicine, orthopedics, cardiology, and adolescent medicine. I strongly believe a healthy lifestyle can help avoid many common medical problems including heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. In 1974, I received an undergraduate degree in Applied Biology with honors from Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA. I earned my Doctorate in Medicine from the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond and completed my Family Practice residency in 1981 at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston Salem, North Carolina. I then spent six years on active duty in the United States Air Force leaving with the rank of Major in 1987 before joining Woodlawn Commons Family Practice. I am Board Certified in Family Medicine and a member of the Cobb County Medical Society, Medical Association of Atlanta, Georgia Academy of Family Physicians, Medical Association of Georgia, American Academy of Family Physicians, Southern Medical Association, and American Medical Association. This physician was recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)’s Bridges to Excellence program for their quality diabetes care and management. The Bridges to Excellence program is designed to create significant leaps in the quality of care by recognizing and rewarding healthcare providers who demonstrate that they have implemented comprehensive solutions in the management of patients and deliver safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable and patient-centered care.
