Overview

The Honorable J. Phillip Gingrey, M.D., represents clients on federal public policy issues and government relations matters pertaining to health care, education and life sciences. A former physician and U.S. Republican congressman who served Georgia’s 11th congressional district from 2003 to 2015, Dr. Gingrey draws on his career as an obstetrician and gynecologist and his experience in Congress to unite stakeholders around public health policy issues and to help clients advance their initiatives on Capitol Hill. He maintains strong relationships with Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle in the U.S. House of Representatives and in the U.S. Senate, where many of his former House colleagues now serve.

Congressional Wins

While in Congress, Dr. Gingrey authored, sponsored and won passage of a number of health-focused initiatives that have been repeatedly reauthorized, including laws that address the public health threat of antibacterial drug resistance, improve patient access to health care services and better medical care by reducing liabilities on the health care delivery system, and promote federal research on chemistry and chemical engineering to reduce the use and production of hazardous substances, among many others.

Dr. Gingrey served on numerous congressional committees, including the House Committee on Energy & Commerce and its Health Subcommittee; the Committee on Education and the Workforce; the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology; and the Committee on Armed Services. In the 110th Congress, Dr. Gingrey was the Ranking Member of the Science Subcommittee on Technology and Innovation. During his 12-year tenure in the House, Dr. Gingrey served as both a majority and minority member, which provided him numerous opportunities for bipartisan collaboration.

Medical Voices on the Hill

In 2009, Dr. Gingrey founded the GOP Doctors Caucus so that medical professionals in Congress could discuss and introduce legislation concerning the most pressing health care matters. Dr. Gingrey served as the co-chair of the Caucus from 2009-15 and promoted the importance of health information technology by writing and introducing the Assisting Doctors to Obtain Proficient and Transmissible Health Information Technology (ADOPT HIT) Act in multiple Congresses.
