Emanuel County welcomes Dr. Appeadu


Swainsboro-Emanuel County Chamber of Commerce proudly introduced Michael Appeadu, MD, Interventional Pain Management Specialist, to the community with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Optim Health System clinic on Thursday, February 1. The event marked the opening of new avenues for residents to receive advanced interventional pain management services right in the heart of Swainsboro at 119 B Victory Drive.

Dr. Appeadu's specialized approach to pain management offers hope to patients suffering from conditions such as sciatica, arthritis, chronic or acute pain, and more.

The ceremony was well-attended by Optim Health System staff, Emanuel Hospital's CEO and leadership team members, Chamber Board Members and Ambassadors, and other area medical providers. The attendees had the opportunity to hear Dr. Appeadu share his enthusiasm for joining the Swainsboro community, his love for local cuisine, and an interesting tidbit about his musical talent as a former clarinet player in the Atlanta symphony.
