Dr. William M. Strain chose a career in medicine because he enjoys helping people to feel optimistic about their health. He specialized in gastroenterology because the field allows him to think critically as well as to actively perform procedures that have the ability to change his patients’ lives for the better.


Dr. Strain believes that aiding in the prevention of cancer is the most rewarding aspect of his career. He has had many cancer patients over the years and says that those patients have inspired him by their demonstrations of “great faith” during all phases of cancer care.


If Dr. Strain were not a physician, he probably would have been a teacher who also coached sports. In his private time, he volunteers as a board member of Southwest Christian Care, a nonprofit hospice ministry located in Union City. Southwest Christian Care, founded in 1987, provides its services at no cost to patients or their families.


Dr. Strain’s hobbies include spending time outdoors — trout-fishing and gardening, in particular. He is married with three sons, all of whom are married, and is a very proud grandfather.

The physicians at Digestive Healthcare of Georgia are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. In the interest of everyone’s health and safety we ask all patients and their guests who have a fever (100° or above), symptoms of a respiratory infection, or who may have traveled to a restricted country or may have been exposed to a person with known COVID-19, the flu or any other communicable disease to reschedule their appointments or procedures. You will not be charged for canceling/rescheduling your appointment. We will be following CDC and Georgia Department of Public Health’s recommendations for screening and management of patients. If you are at all concerned you may have a serious infectious disease, your best course of action is to seek care at your primary care physician’s office or local hospital’s emergency department.

We have implemented a telemedicine visit for our patients who are unable to be in the office for their appointment. Please call our office to schedule a telemedicine visit with your provider.
