He earned his medical degree in 1992 at Marshall University, where he also completed his family medicine residency. He is certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.

“For some time I had thought about the possibility of returning to Marshall, to my medical roots,” said Petty. “I have always had great respect for the Department of Family Medicine and was delighted when timing and opportunity came together to make it possible to come back and be a part of such a dedicated team.” 

Petty is accepting new patients and referrals at Marshall Family Medicine-Barboursville, located in  Village Medical Center at 659 Central Avenue. To schedule an appointment, call 304-736-5247.
