In Loving Memory of
Dr. Randy Barfield
September 4, 1945 – January 29, 2021
Parents of Peachtree Park Pediatrics,
The PPP family is sad to report that Dr. Randy Barfield passed away on Friday, January 29th following a short illness.
A native of Alabama, Randy Barfield attended medical school at Emory then completed his Pediatrics residency in Montreal where he met his wife, Helene. After serving in the Navy, the Barfields returned to Atlanta in 1976 and Dr. Barfield joined Olin Shivers and Bob Garner in the practice that become Peachtree Park Pediatrics. He retired in 2016 after 40 years serving children and families in the Buckhead area. Following retirement, Randy enjoyed travelling and playing even more golf.
During his tenure the practice grew from three to seven physicians and moved from Peachtree Park Drive to the current location on Howell Mill Road. Randy Barfield was an excellent clinician, known for his enthusiasm, laugh, white hair and genuine concern for patients and their families. He had a special interest in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and other developmental issues.
Dr. Barfield also contributed to the profession of Pediatrics by serving in leadership positions with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Kids Health First and the Georgia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
He is survived by this wife Helene, son Charles and twin grand-daughters Julia and Emily.
If families wish to contribute memories or tributes to Dr. Barfield, please send them to the practice and we will forward to his family.
