Dr. Roy D. Flood, Jr. – Cardiology

Dr. Flood knows a thing or two about stress. After all, he is a college basketball fan—but not to worry, he is also a renowned cardiologist!

Dr. Roy D. Flood, Jr. – Cardiology

Who: Dr. Roy D. Flood Jr. is the doctor that would be voted “most fun to grab a beer with,” or rather, a green juice, seeing as he is a clinical and interventional cardiologist. Dr. Flood spent almost 15 years in the Washington, D.C. area during the early years of his career. He then spent nearly 12 years on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where he ran his own practice – they say island time helps with the heart! While living and working in Savannah, Dr. Flood is coming to appreciate Southeastern Conference football, despite being a devoted, die-hard Tar Heel basketball fan.

What: As a cardiology specialist, Dr. Flood oversees clinical and interventional care on a team of cardiologists within a large, multi-specialist group through SouthCoast Health. The group is highly team-oriented, offering comprehensive care while maintaining individual expertise. Dr. Flood relies on attentively listening to his patients and using the most cutting edge technology to prevent, diagnose, manage and treat acute and chronic cardiovascular diseases.

Why: A sense of service and intellectual challenge is what drew Dr. Flood to the medical field, but it was his natural ability to authentically connect with patients and nuanced skill that led him to cardiology, specifically. His favorite parts of his job are getting to know his patients in a more “casual” setting, as well as performing angioplasty, which is the use of balloons and other devices to open occluded arteries.
