Matthew Camp is a fellowship trained and Board certified vitreo-retinal surgeon who moved his ophthalmology practice to Jasper in 2009.
Dr. Camp was born and raised in Smyrna, Georgia, a town about the size of Jasper at the time. During high school he received his first "hands-on" medical experience in the ER at Smyrna Hospital. From there, he attended the University of Georgia and graduated Summa cum Laude with a bachelor of science in Microbiology. At the Medical College of Georgia (MCG), Dr. Camp excelled in his studies, earning honors as the top freshman with a 4.0 GPA and was later named Physician's Physician of his graduating class.
After his marriage to Dr. Paige B. Camp (Dermatology) during their senior year, the Camps remained in Augusta to complete their training. Dr. Camp completed his Internship with the Internal Medicine's Rotating Internship program, where he gained experience in Emergency Medicine, Plastic Surgery, Nephrology, and Cardiology, among other rotations. He then began a three year residenecy at the MCG Department of Ophthalmology, where he served as chief resident. He also participated in several research projects which allowed him to lecture and present his findings annually at MCG's Resident's Day and twice in Ft. Lauderdale at the ARVO convention.
Following residency, Dr. Camp accepted a position as Fellow in Vitreoretinal surgery at Eye Consultants of Atlanta (Piedmont Hospital) which he completed in 1999. Prior to opening Georgia Mountain Ophthalmology he has practiced in Dunwoody, Georgia. His desire to return to the people and values of a smaller community has led him to shift his practice focus to Jasper. Dr. Camp is the first retinal specialist and the only ophthalmologist to practice in Pickens County, and treats diseases of the posterior segment of the eye including diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration, and retinal tears and detachments.
