Q&A

How many providers work at Emory at Peachtree City and what are their backgrounds and specialties?

We have a total of four providers and by February 2024, we will have five.

Below are a few of our providers available to patients at our Peachtree City office.

Christopher Velez-Reyes, MD is a family medicine physician with Emory at Peachtree City – Primary Care. He was drawn to the specialty after watching his grandfather’s health struggles in his native Puerto Rico. Determined to better understand what might have prevented those health issues and what could have been done to help his grandfather have a better quality of life, he made medicine a career. Today, Dr. Velez-Reyes provides preventive care and screenings and works to enhance quality of life for all his patients and their families. He enjoys caring for the whole person and tending to each patients’ health needs. As a family medicine physician, Dr. Velez-Reyes treats patients ages five and up. He enjoys caring for entire families and building lasting relationship.

Poorvi Pfenning, MD is a board-certified family medicine physician. Dr. Pfenning chose to specialize in family medicine because she is passionate about approaching patients’ primary care needs through a “whole person” lens. She then chose to complete her residency in family medicine at the University of Colorado so she could obtain the broadest primary care skill set possible. Dr. Pfenning takes pride in her treatment of a wide variety of women’s health concerns, mental health/psychiatric conditions, dermatologic needs and nutrition/wellness concerns. She is also adept at chronic illness diagnosis and management. Dr. Pfenning is a first-generation immigrant from India and grew up in Augusta, GA. In her free time, she enjoys playing tennis, paddle boarding, hiking, biking, and relaxing outdoors with her husband, daughter and goldendoodle.
