Dr. Stokes Jr' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Stokes Jr "Growing up in Glen Allan, Mississippi, Dr. Donny Stokes spent a lot of time with family, hunting, fishing, and studying the Bible. His medical journey began when he enlisted as a combat medic in the Mississippi Army National Guard and worked as a nationally registered emergency medical technician, followed by becoming a registered nurse and working in multiple areas (mainly in the emergency room and cardiac catheterization lab). At that point, Dr. Stokes obtained a direct commission as a 2LT in the United States Army Reserve. Dr. Stokes is a veteran and was activated during Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Graduating medical school in 2004, Dr. Stokes completed his internal medicine residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. He served as chief medical resident and went on to complete his fellowship in cardiovascular disease at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Dr. Stokes is board certified in both, internal medicine and cardiovascular disease, and is a member of the American College of Cardiology. He has been active in research studies, including projects with the Jackson Heart Study and also a study on IgE and its relation to heart disease. Dr. Stokes practiced invasive cardiology in Columbus, Mississippi, where he also served as the cardiac rehab medical director, before joining the Jackson Heart Clinic in 2017. Dr. Stokes and his wife, Jenna, reside in Brandon, Mississippi, where he still enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, studying the Bible, and staying busy with his daughter, Swayze, and her involvement in extracurricular activities."

Patient Comments (3)
in Weir, MS |
Jackson Heart Clinic scheduled me an appointment within days of me calling without a referral. Dr. Stokes was the only doctor available. He made my husband and I feel very comfortable and confident in his care. He ran every test necessary to complete my diagnsosis and kept us informed throughout the process.

Great Cardiologist!
in French Camp MS |
I was unsatisfied with the current cardiologist group and was referred to Dr. Stokes. 3 days before my appointment Lauren the nurse called and cancelled appointment and said that after looking at the chart that she and the office manager thought I would rather follow up with my old cardiologist. No questions as to why I wanted to see a different cardiologist. I was very disappointed in this arrogant way of patient care.
