A native South Carolinian, Dr. Payne finished his undergraduate degree at Furman University and earned his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

The doctor served in the U.S. Army for 17 years and had a distinguished military career, achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He was awarded many honors, including the Army Meritorious Service Medal in Operation Iraqi Freedom, the Iraqi Campaign Medal, the Overseas Service Ribbon, and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
He was the Division Director for REI at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he oversaw the military’s largest IVF practice with over 450 cycles yearly, trained many OB/GYN residents and REI fellows, as well as held multiple academic appointments, including Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at USUHS School of Medicine, Clinical Associate of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Duke University Medical Center, and Clinical Instructor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Medical College of Georgia.

Reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI) is a surgical subspecialty of obstetrics and gynecology that trains physicians in reproductive medicine addressing hormonal functioning as it pertains to reproduction, as well as the issue of infertility. Reproductive endocrinologists are the only doctors trained in providing fertility treatments using assisted reproductive technologies (ART) such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) and egg freezing. They are also trained in obstetrics and gynecology, and then have additional training to provide fertility treatment.
Happily married, Dr. Payne and his wife have three children.
