Office Information



Welcome to Coastal Family Medicine! My name is Austin Sherman, born and raised in Columbus Ohio (Go Bucks!). I am the youngest of 6 in my family (and the tallest at 6’5”). I spent 4 wonderful years at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio getting my undergraduate degree in biology, a minor in Spanish and spent many hours on the basketball courts winning intramural championships. Shortly after graduating, I took my talents down to Grenada and Saint George’s University in pursuit of my medical degree and more rings! I was successful in completing both of my missions! If you couldn’t already tell, basketball is my favorite sport. I also enjoy cinema, art, videogames, anime, working out, being outdoors, going to the beach and just about anything that has to do with food!


During my time in medical school, I felt I was unable to pinpoint exactly where in medicine I fit the best. I saw myself enjoying every aspect that medicine had to offer. I knew I wanted to continue to learn about all parts of medicine and look for guidance during that process. Being one of the first classes to have all virtual interviews for residency programs made this process even harder. That is, until I got on the zoom call with the staff at NHRMC. Immediately, I knew that there was a connection. From the conversations with the staff members and residents, it was evident there was a strong family dynamic, in a community that focuses on health and wellbeing for all its residents. Plus, we are a short drive away from one of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast! It has been an honor and a privilege to be a part of such a great organization! I know I am in the right place and will have the tools and guidance to become a great physician.
