Evan Harvey, MD

Bio
I grew up in Atlanta, GA, and Guntersville, AL. I attended the University of Alabama and graduated with a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. Upon realizing engineers don’t have any fun, I attended UAB School of Medicine. After medical school, I joined my wife, Libby, in Memphis where she had already started her legal career. We now consider ourselves Memphians in every sense of the word. You can usually find us cheering on the Grizzlies or chasing our two pups around Overton Park. I had such a great time in my Pediatrics Residency that I decided to stick around for a year as chief resident. I couldn't be more excited to continue training as a Cardiology Fellow in Memphis!
