Dr.Thomas J. Locke III, was born in Vidalia, Georgia, raised in SW Atlanta, and completed his undergraduate study at Princeton University, graduated from medical school at Howard University, where he also completed his internship. His residency and training was completed at George Washington University.
Dr. Locke is board certified in Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Aesthetics, and a certified Medical Review Officer.Dr. Locke has accomplished this level of proficiency in 3 different specialties. The process means that your physician and surgeon has received training and passed rigorous written and oral exams to achieve this level of certification.
Frustrated with the traditional insurance billing business model, during the past decade Dr. Locke has focused on innovative services that are not covered by insurance where the only loyalties and obligations are to the patient. Pursuit of these interests has led to also being certified in Aesthetics. Ongoing studies in anti-aging medicine and many areas of cosmetic surgery keeps him up to date. His practice philosophy centers around all aspects of personal image enhancement services.
Dr. Locke has hundreds of hours of extensive training directly from the innovators in the field and professional practice experience in all aspects of body contouring. He is an instructor for surgical equipment vendors- teaching doctors in various specialties from all over the country who are learning liposuction, fat transfer and all aspects of body contouring. He has performed more than 2000 cosmetic surgical procedures in the past 7 years. His practice is now principally limited to Cosmetic Surgery and a wide array of personal image enhancing services. The surgical practice is 100% devoted to minimally invasive procedures, performed under local or tumescent anesthesia.
In some practices many patients never see their surgeon much until the day of the operation. These offices have nurses and medical assistants or even non-medically trained business people that do most of the evaluation and pre and post-surgical work. Dr. Locke believes that it is important to have the surgeon involved from the very first appointment and throughout all the follow up care. Failure to be able to see or easily speak to the doctor, is a warning sign! The doctor insists that his cell phone number is available to all cosmetic surgery patients because it is important for your doctor to be available. Dr. Locke takes great pride in bringing over 30 years of experience to the current surgical practice caring for complicated medical patients. This experience enables him to be comfortable caring for many patients traditionally trained surgeons fear.
Dr. Locke is the Medical Director of the WISE Medical Center - Personal Imaging Enhancement Services Center, an affiliate of W.I.S.E. Medical Centers, LLC. in Johns Creek, Georgia. He provides physician oversight for several Nurse Practioners and Aestheticians, as well as laser technicians involved in various personal image enhancing services.
