About Avis Meeks Day, MD

  • Dr. Day believes her faith makes life worth living. While she enjoys traveling, writing poetry, sewing, and doing puzzles, she believes that marriage, parenting, and “kissing cousins” keep her grounded. She gives back to the community by remaining an active volunteer with her sorority, and continues to satisfy her curiousity about different people and cultures through books. Dr. Day has enjoyed diverse experiences in her life; the honor of military service, the joy of raising two successful young people, and the challenge of melding marriage and career. These experiences all help her to connect with the families that entrust their children to her care.

I love children and I am blessed to care for them.
