Dr. Elizabeth De is a Board Certified Internal Medicine physician. She received her B.A. in Political Science from Rice University, her M.D. from Emory University and completed her Internship and Residency in Dallas, TX at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW). She is an active member of the American College of Physicians.

 

Dr. De grew up in Cambridge, MA. When she was 16 years old she spent the summer in Oaxaca, Mexico as part of a community service program and discovered her passion for medicine. She went on to do this program two more times in Ecuador and the Dominican Republic. During medical school she spent a month in Cuernavaca, Mexico studying medical Spanish and speaks Spanish fluently. Because of her international exposure to medicine and public health, Dr. De is sensitive to the ways in which different cultural practices ultimately influence the health and care plan of each patient.

 

Dr. De’s career in medicine began in Hospital Medicine. She was active in the Society of Hospital Medicine ( SHM) and completed the Leadership Academy through SHM in 2015. She was an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Emory University and Medical Director of the medical unit at Emory Johns Creek Hospital for 3 years. In 2014 she was the recipient of the Daisy Grover Excellence in Patient and Family-Centered Care award given annually to one member in the Department of Hospital Medicine at Emory University. After spending 7 years as a Hospitalist, Dr. De decided to transition to Primary Care as she greatly missed having long-lasting relationships with her patients. She is passionate about patient-centered care and strongly believes in a collaborative approach to medical decision making with her patients.

 

In her time away from work Dr. De enjoys traveling, photography, playing tennis and most of all spending time with her family. Her husband is a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon, and they have 2 children.
