Dr. Sherri R. Godbey


My patients value my experience as a physician with over 14 years of caring for men, women, and children, and the idea of doctor-as-teacher has influenced me the most in caring for them over the years. I view my patients as independent caretakers  of their own bodies and health, while I serve as their educator and guide.  

I want to do more than manage your physical health - I want to be a resource to help you with every aspect of your health. I listen carefully and take the time to understand what's going on with you. This helps me to do what's right for you, and it's a key to helping you feel comfortable and confident in me.

At Godbey Care, we do a fantastic job of helping patients have a good experience. You'll find that our service here is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable, as we strive to help you in many ways. The attentive and personalized care we provide sets us apart from other medical groups, and it's a difference I know you will appreciate.
