We are saddened by the passing of our very own Dr. Douglas Stringer, who diligently practiced neurosurgery with the Brain and Spine team. A true expert in his field, he dedicated his life to helping patients for over 40 years. Standing apart from the rest, he served as one of only three neurological surgeons at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center and one of only five neurosurgeons at Ascension Sacred Heart Bay. Dr. Stringer was also the only neurosurgeon who also specialized in pain management in Bay County. He was fiercely committed to providing outstanding care to the patients he served and was voted Best of Bay the last two years in a row! We are honored to have had such a highly skilled and compassionate physician as Dr. Stringer as part of the team and will miss him dearly.
