Kerrie Satcher, M.D.Cares for Patients at Decatur and Piedmont
I was born and raised in Conyers, Georgia. I attended the University of Georgia, where I studied Biological Science with a minor in Public Health. I loved my time at the University of Georgia and was actively involved on campus, including starting a student-run food pantry on campus. I subsequently went on to attend the Medical College of Georgia to obtain my Doctorate of Medicine. I completed my dermatology residency at the University of Florida, where I wore red and black and cheered on the dawgs as much as possible! I was honored to serve as chief resident during my final year of residency training. I completed my pediatric dermatology fellowship at Emory University in July 2022.

Outside of fellowship, I enjoy running, attending UGA football games, reading crime thriller novels, and spending time at Lake Oconee. I am married to my college sweetheart, Robert Satcher. We have a two-year-old golden retriever named Tucker. On weekends, you can find us playing catch with Tucker at dog parks around town and enjoying our favorite Tex-Mex at Superica.
