Dr. Joel Shavin, MD
I graduated from Emory University Medical School in 1969 and completed pediatric training in 1972 after serving as chief resident at Egleston Hospital. I received board certification in pediatrics and practiced until 1976. I then went to the Medical College of Georgia for a dermatology residency, which I completed in 1978. I received my board certification in dermatology that year and started Gwinnett Dermatology.
