Dr. Michael Wiles was born and raised in Illinois, his family moved Ohio for a job transfer. He has made his new home here in Chattanooga for the past 2 years now and has been enjoying every minute. Why move to Chattanooga one may ask? Well, to get away from the blistering cold, icy and snowy winters of the North. His hobbies include cycling, wood working, Frisbee golf, swimming and photography to name a few.
Dr. Wiles attended “THE” Ohio State University following in his father’s footsteps. The day after his transcripts were sent into OSU, his parents decided to move to Orlando, Florida, and have been there ever since. Looks like Mom and Dad won the race to move to the South! He received a bachelor’s degree in Zoology and still loves animals to this day. He attended Des Moines University in Iowa because it reminded him of where he grew up in Illinois. He graduated from DMU with a doctorate in Podiatric Medicine in 2003. After his education, he continued into residency at Genesys Regional Medical Center in Flint, Michigan.
