Dr. Hedgpeth graduated from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, NC. He completed his adult psychiatry residency training at Virginia Commonwealth University Health System in Richmond, VA.
Dr. Hedgpeth's training has positioned him to care for adults of all ages with a wide spectrum mental health disorders and related conditions.
