Dr. Joe Turner founded Affinity Clinic, originally named Tifton Medical Clinic, as a solo office in 1964. Dr. Turner shared office space with Dr. Jim Kirkpatrick, a local surgeon, close to the First Methodist Church on 12th Street. Because of a rapidly growing medical practice and new hospital facilities, additional practice space and physicians were needed. In 1968, five acres of land across from Tift General Hospital were purchased and the new Tifton Medical Clinic was built, along with a second building, Tifton Pediatric Clinic, owned by Dr. William Bridges.

In 1968, Dr. Robert Wight joined the practice, followed by Dr. Richard McCullough in 1976 and Dr. Steve Rigdon in 1981. While many have followed, these physicians laid the foundation for the progressive facilities and health care that are the hallmark of this medical practice.

By 1994, the clinic had grown to 14 physicians and again needed additional office space. The now renamed Affinity Clinic moved into its present location on Highway 41 in Tifton in 1997.

The group now includes over 20 physicians and is still expanding, right along with South Georgia. From medical sub-specialties like cardiology, gastroenterology, pulmonology and critical care to newer services, Affinity Clinic provides South Georgia residents with specialty care close to home.
