Azalea has been apart of the community of Tallahassee for over two decades. It was the vision of Dr. Tara Wah as she branched out to deliver care to women in her caring and passionate way. The practiced started with a handful of dedicated women and blossomed into a group of very special clinicians that delivered care each in their very unique way that somehow still had an undertone of being very hands on and nurturing. The practice included at one time three physicians, four midwives, two nurses, two medical assistants, three receptionist, a transcriptionist, and three billers and an office manager. Each working together in their area of their expertise to deliver the best care we could imagine.
Our lives move through transitions from puberty to child-bearing to menopause. Each stage offers unfamiliar, exciting adventures and challenges. This has been true for the practice as well. Along the way we have had retirements, career changes, career advancements and even the challenge of losing someone dear to us as we journey through the life cycle of Azalea. In it all we have tried to uphold the mission that was from the beginning to deliver to a diverse group of women from all walks of life the best health care. From delivery of new lives, to routine health care, to conditions and disease we have been proud and grateful to have taken care of the women of Tallahassee.
We are not done yet! We have grown with ideas and looking to offer even more avenues to health care. From offering more office procedures to looking forward to offering aesthetics so women feel and look their best. Keep your eye on Azalea as we continue to grow in our next cycle.
Dr. George comes to Florida as a native New Yorker who always knew life was better in the south. Her part southern part Caribbean upbringing was bound to lead her to a warm, friendly and easy-going place. She started in New York completing her undergraduate years at Union College and went on to The State University of New York (SUNY) to complete a degree in Health as a Physician Assistant. After working as a PA in Obstetrics and Gynecology in the South Bronx, it was time to make a life long dream come true. Completing a Medical Degree from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (now known as Rutgers Medical School) in Piscataway, New Jersey and with a short trip across the George Washington Bridge, she completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. After working in a private practice in Long Island, she decided she had enough of the snow, cold and hustling crowd.
Dr. George sees herself as a quiet, gentle natured person with a caring attitude that will hopefully make you at ease in a sometimes very uncomfortable “situation”. It has been her goal to devote her life to making a difference in the world one person at a time. From the mothers that have allowed her to be apart of one of the most memorable time in a women’s life in the delivery room to those who she continues to encounter as we promote women’s health at Azalea, she feels very honored and blessed. She hopes to spend the rest of her time in Tallahassee to continue her mission and making friends and ties that will be life long. Cooking, gardening and travel are amongst the other activities she enjoys with family and friends.
