Sylvia Richey

Sylvia Richey MD

The West Clinic welcomed Dr. Sylvia  Richey to its team of Hematology Oncology specialists in January, 2005. Originally from  Birmingham, AL, Dr. Richey graduated from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN and went on to complete her medical training at the University Of Alabama School Of  Medicine, Birmingham, AL.

She continued her Internship and Residency training in Internal Medicine at Baptist Medical Centers, Birmingham and completed her Fellowship in Medical Oncology at the University of Tennessee, Memphis, TN. Her fellowship training was augmented with additional specialized training at MD Anderson Cancer Center’s Breast Cancer Division-Houston. Dr. Richey is Board Certified by American Board of Internal Medicine and  Board Certified in Medical Oncology.

With a passion for her patients and commitment to provide the best cancer care available to each and every patient she treats, it comes as no surprise that she is beloved by patients and staff alike at The West Clinic.

In addition, Dr. Richey has been committed to taking The West Clinic’s highest standard of care to the patients in the Corinth, MS area and beyond. For the past 3 years, she has traveled 2 days a week to Corinth, providing cancer care to area residents. She will quickly tell anyone how much she loves her patients in Corinth and how she is committed to delivering care to them in their own communities. She feels that each patient she treats deserves the very best care.

Working closely with Magnolia Regional Medical Center in Corinth, Dr. Richey not only treats patients in the clinic, but also sees many hospital patients late into the night. As a mother of 4 and physician’s wife, there are many nights when she leaves the hospital arriving home long after her children are asleep.

Dr. Richey has been extremely instrumental in developing treatment care plans within the West Clinic’s new electronic medical records as well as assisting in the development of evidence-based treatment protocols.

Dr. Richey’s interest in clinical research is evidenced by her active participation in numerous clinical trials, having served as Principal Site Investigator on several studies. In addition, she is a noted lecturer, serves on several regional and national committees, and is a contributing author for Memphis Woman’s Magazine.
