Jeffrey Langford, M.D., A.E.-C.
Jeffrey Langford, M.D., A.E.-C., is a fellowship trained allergist who has practiced locally for years and has the experience of thousands of patient interactions. Dr. Langford is allergic, asthmatic, and is treated with allergy shots himself, so he understands the frustration and struggles of wanting to live a normal, active life in spite of these ailments. He takes his responsibility of educating patients on the causes, treatments, and preventative measures of allergies, asthma, and immunologic diseases very seriously, and spends a great deal of time in this effort face-to-face with patients.
Dr. Langford is familiar with the importance of sports in childhood development as he was raised in a sports-loving family. He believes that comprehensive allergy and asthma care can lead to better performance on many levels and especially in sports-related activities.
Education & Experience
Dr. Langford attended the University of Georgia where he studied microbiology and received his Bachelor of Science. He graduated in 1998 and shortly after attended The Medical College of Georgia where he received his M.D. in 2002. He then completed his residency program in Internal Medicine also in Augusta. He completed his Allergy and Immunology fellowship at The Medical College of Georgia in 2008 and moved to Macon, close to his childhood home of Dublin, Georgia. He has been a practicing allergist for over ten years, now building his own practice from the ground up, and has also worked as a hospitalist for Cogent Healthcare at the Medical Center of Central Georgia.
Outside the Office
Dr. Langford has two sons – Alan and Griffin. He enjoys spending time with his kids, playing baseball and soccer, fishing with his sons, and the occasional hunting trip. And yes, it appears that his sons are allergic as well. While old dogma would hold that newborns must see several seasons before developing seasonal allergies, you should have seen young Griffin’s first summer in the grass.
Dr. Langford is a season ticket holder for the Georgia Bulldogs football team and enjoys cheering on his Bulldogs, win or lose.
Georgia is home and Dr. Langford has not strayed far from his roots. He enjoys an occasional Sunday afternoon trip to Juliette for fried green tomatoes, Georgia Bob’s barbecue, and Bryan’s Subs in Dublin – but don’t bring it up unless you have ten minutes to talk!
