Steven Brandon, M.D.
Dr. Brandon was born and reared in Starkville, graduating from Starkville High School in 1978. He matriculated at Millsaps College majoring in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. He attended the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Medicine graduating with a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree in 1988. He completed a medical residency at Roanoke Memorial Hospitals, an affiliate of University of Virginia, in 1991 specializing in Family Medicine. Having obtained Board Certification by the American Board of Family Practice, he entered the private practice of Family Medicine in Chilhowie, VA. In 1992 Dr. Brandon returned to his hometown of Starkville to join his father in practice at The Family Clinic. Dr. Brandon practices office based Family Medicine for patients of all ages, including inpatient practice at OCH Regional Medical Center.
Dr. Brandon has been active in organized medicine being a member of the American Medical Association, the Mississippi State Medical Association, The American Academy of Family Physicians, and the Mississippi Academy of Family Physicians. He has served in several positions in each of these organizations including as President of the Mississippi Academy of Family Physicians, and as Trustee of the Mississippi State Medical Association. Additionally, he has been active in quality improvement organizations including serving as Board member, and Chairman of the Board at Information and Quality Healthcare (IQH) of Mississippi.

Finally, he has served as Affiliate Faculty of the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Medicine since 1992. He has also served the community as a committee member at the Starkville Chamber of Commerce, and as vestry member and Senior Warden at the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection.
Dr. Brandon has fervent commitment to Family Medicine, as did his father who practiced Family Medicine in Starkville for 54 years. This commitment is based in the philosophy that well trained family doctors can manage the vast majority of healthcare problems and diseases. In fact, he believes that family doctors master a much broader understanding of the entire healthcare system that assists patients in getting the best quality and most efficient healthcare services. Dr. Brandon believes in the family doctor diagnosing conditions, referring patients when needed for specialized treatments, and in the absence of a diagnosis, proceeding with a well thought out workup and referral if necessary. He especially enjoys traditional family practice for all members of the family, adults and children alike. A more full knowledge of the family unit is helpful in managing the needs of individuals.
