About the Provider

Neurologist Dr. Amanda Floyd grew up in a small town in Georgia and although she received her medical training in bigger cities, it’s this small town upbringing that inspired and formed her compassionate philosophy of care. With each patient, she goes to great lengths to provide patient-centered care — the kind of care she would want for her own loved ones — using evidence-based guidelines, experience, knowledge and skill.

She obtained her Doctor of Physical Therapy from the University of Southern California and then her Doctor of Medicine at the Medical College of Georgia. After completing her Internal Medicine Internship with Baptist Health Center in Alabama, Dr. Floyd moved to Atlanta for her Neurology Residency and Fellowship for Clinical Neurophysiology and Epilepsy at Emory University. She has been practicing as a neurologist in the Carolinas since 2012.

Dr. Floyd focuses on methods that promote the prevention of stroke, headache and seizure recurrence. She and her team optimize and tailor treatments to improve independence in patients with neurologic problems so that they may enjoy their highest quality of life for years to come.

When not caring for her patients, Dr. Floyd enjoys reading, hiking, playing on the lake and family time with her husband, three sons and their dog.
