Kathy Raynor, MD
Kathy Raynor, MD

Dr. Raynor grew up on beautiful rural Long Island, often helping out with a neighbor’s roadside produce stand. And while she values the experience, it was volunteering at the local hospital while in high school that determined her career path. Something about helping people, making a difference in their lives, appealed to her. So she enrolled at Boston College where she majored in psychology (again volunteering at the local hospital), spent time volunteering at a hospital in Kenya, and then at a Cambodian hospital.

Dr. Raynor graduated from St. George’s University Medical School, was a Resident Physician at the
University of Connecticut Health Center, and earned a Fellowship in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology at SUNY Downstate at Long Island College Hospital. All while learning the latest in diagnosing and treating digestive disorders and volunteering of course.

Dr. Orr is an experienced Gastroenterologist. For the past 16 years he practiced in Greensboro, North Carolina. Before that, he practiced medicine for nearly 20 years in Washington, DC. It’s clear he knows how to work. It’s equally clear he knows how to play. For nearly all those years, Dr. Orr and his family vacationed in the area and grew to love it. So he decided to combine work and play and joined the Georgetown Hospital System family and Waccamaw Gastroenterology.

He decided to become a doctor in second grade, but it took a degree from the University of
Pittsburgh Medical School, residency at George Washington University School of Medicine, and, later, a fellowship at Washington Hospital Center to realize his dream.
