T. Scott McGee, M.D.
"I would like to thank the people of Albany who have
welcomed my family and me into their community. Everyone has been warm and
gracious, and we feel we have found a great place to call home. Albany is
everything that I hoped and expected it to be. I look forward to seeing my
children grow up to be the kind of people that they were meant to be.
Picking an area to live in is like picking a church. These are the people
who, in a way, are your extended family. Hopefully, they will be there for
you when you need them, as you will be when they need you.
I grew up in Virginia learning
to appreciate the great cultural heritage that we in the South share. I
attended the Virginia Military Institute because I felt that school sought
to develop the spirit and body as well as the mind. I then attended medical
school at The University of Virginia. Since the Army paid for my education,
they sent me to William Beaumont Army Medical Center for my Internship. I
later did my residency in Orthopedics at the combined program of the
University of Texas and William Beaumont at El Paso.
I have served in Texas,
Virginia, Georgia, and Germany during my military career. In the Army I had
the opportunity to grow through diverse experiences including attendance at the
Army Ranger school, Airborne school, scuba school and others. I spent five
years on jump status and have Jordanian and Australian parachute wings. I
also have combat parachute wings earned during the airborne assault into
Panama during Just Cause with the 1st Ranger Battalion. Numerous times I
have found myself as the sole surgeon taking care of soldiers in diverse
places such as Bosnia, Panama, Jordan and others. I have learned to rely on
my hard-earned skills and shoulder the responsibility that comes with others
trusting you to take care of their illnesses.
Settling down in Albany was a
conscious decision by my wife and me, having traveled fairly extensively.
I believe this community has everything our family needs to be happy. It
avoids those things that larger communities have that are unpleasant. We
love the South and are already growing to love Albany.
I believe that the Good Lord gives everyone certain gifts. It is, however, up to the individual to figure out what those gifts are and glorify the creator by using them. I have always enjoyed mechanical tasks and intellectual challenges. That is why I was drawn to orthopedic surgery. To those people who have already and will in the future trust me to take care of them, I thank you. I will cherish that trust and endeavor to treat you as I would a member of my own family."
