Dr Mehmet Oz and Jeff Arnold, who operate Sharecare together, meet up at Sharecare offices in Buckhead last month. CREDIT: Rodney Ho/[email protected] Dr. Mehmet Oz last month flew into Atlanta to visit Fox 5 affiliate WAGA-TV and Sharecare, an Atlanta-based interactive medical website created by him and Jeff Arnold , founder of WebMD based in Buckhead where he met with the employees and gave them a quick pep talk.

With the dismantling of the Buckhead bar district years ago, Buckhead lost most of its connection to the pedestrian. The study group is looking to remedy that and has taken an aspirational approach, looking to Dupont Circle… >>
