The Garrett Award is given to recognize physicians within the Resurgens practice who exemplify the model Dr. Garrett provided, which includes great patient outcomes, wonderful relationships within the community, and outstanding leadership.

Dr. Knox, who specializes in general orthopaedics, practices at the Marietta and Towne Lake offices. “I was surprised and thrilled to receive this award,” said Dr. Knox. “I was also pleased my entire family was able to attend.”

He is a member of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and Marietta Rotary Club. He also serves as the Cobb County Community Service Representative to Lake Allatoona Preservation Authority, and is the Team Physician for Marietta High School.
