J. Chadwick Tober, MD, FACS joined the medical staff of Beaufort Memorial Hospital in 2004.  He came to Beaufort from The Ohio State University Medical Center, where he spent ten years on the teaching faculty. During that time, he was associate professor for the Division of Vascular Surgery and medical director of the vascular lab.  

Throughout his medical career, Dr. Tober's focus has been on vascular disease.  As a resident, he did special research on it through a grant from the American Heart Association.
