In 2005, Dr. Dollar left a private practice at Piedmont Hospital and became faculty member in the division of cardiology at Emory University School of Medicine.

Personal Statement:

After 13 years of private practice, I came to Emory University School of Medicine to pursue a dream of teaching as part of my practice. I specifically chose to come to Grady Memorial Hospital to pursue my career-long desire to work with a medically underserved community. Since day one, my experience has exceeded expectations. There’s a sense of family among the faculty, and everyone truly cares about one another and loves teaching. I realize that people are here because caring for patients is their mission.
