Practicing medicine in Granville County for 32 years, Dr. Mahan has treated multiple generations of local families in this area. Actually, if you talk to enough people, you will hear stories about him, like walking to a child's house on Christmas Eve to treat a Strep Throat, to the "Essential Piece Award," the highest level of recognition from the Granville Health System to team members that demonstrate outstanding performance by going above and beyond their normal responsibilities to make a positive impact.

Dr. Mahan takes pride in being one of the very few independent practices left in the area that is not owned corporately, as well as he is also quick to mention that he cares for his patients in the hospital - whereas current practice seems to dictate that doctors are seemingly randomly assigned to hospital patients now, whether they know them or have knowledge of their medical history or not.
Dr. Mahan also takes his patient's calls 24 hours a day - there is no answering service to go through. You call, leave your number and you will talk to him or his associate, Dr. Stock.
In addition to complete family medical care, Dr. Mahan still delivers babies. He believes it is a very important job to bring new life into the world.
