Dr. Harry Sims graduated from the University of Georgia and the Medical College of Georgia. He performed his residency at Macon Hospital. In 1958, he hung his shingle sign on the outside of an office in Fort Valley, Georgia, the beginning of a very rewarding career as a Family Medicine Doctor to a community he grew to love dearly. During his years of practice, he was appointed as Chief of Staff of Peach County Hospital for several terms. Doc retired in 2002. He will forever be remembered as Daddy, Doc, Papa Sims, Shug, and most definitely, a true and dedicated Georgia Bulldog fan. “Go You Hairy Dawgs!”
