Courtney Middleton, MD

Courtney Middleton Portrait

Dr. Middleton grew up in the Atlanta suburb of Stone Mountain, Georgia and went to school at Greater Atlanta Christian School. She then went west to Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, finishing her undergraduate degree in biology in three years and left soon after graduation to move to Costa Rica for three months of intensive classes to learn Spanish, followed by nine months of working alongside a medical missionary in Honduras to provide care for healthcare-starved people in rural jungle areas.

Having learned to speak Spanish while in Central America, Dr. Middleton spent two years of medical school, taught mostly in Spanish, Ponce School of Medicine in Puerto Rico. After surviving two hurricanes, she decided to complete her medical degree—hurricane-free—at Mercer University in Macon. She completed her OB/GYN residency at Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Missouri and decided to move home to Atlanta after four snowy winters. She has been a physician at Peachtree Women’s Clinic since 2007.

Dr. Middleton has always been interested in caring for others and can’t imagine a job that would be a better fit than working with her colleagues at Peachtree Women’s Clinic. Being bilingual, she likes being able to serve both English and Spanish-speaking patients and has also volunteered at her church to teach English as a second language. She is married and she and her husband, Eric, are dedicated to their young son. They love spending time together, particularly cooking and traveling to new places.
