We have provided healthcare for families here in Georgia
since 1985. Our facility expresses a comfortable, friendly
and informal family feel to the health care services we
provide. This web site is a simple informative means for
our current and perspective patients to have access to
information about our practice and available forms for
your healthcare needs.
Currently, we are accepting new patients with the
insurance carrier's listed on our insurance page. We provide services as primary care
providers evaluating and managing conditions in patients as young as 6 years of age
to adults. We provide care for both acute illness such as sore throats and allergies to
managing chronic illness such as high blood pressure, thyroid, cholesterol and
diabetes as well as provide screening wellness and physical exams,including birth
control and well-woman exams.
Appointments are necessary. Walk-in's are not encouraged. For established patients
we try to offer daily appointment availability and only ask that you to call ahead so we may
try to work-you-in on a timely that might minimize your wait times.
Current News of the Practice:
~ Wellness Exam:
~ Included: Exam will consist of a preventive medical discussion, review of body systems (i.e. listen to heart, lungs,
etc.), preventive procedures like EKG's if indicated/necessary, Urinalysis, etc. This exam does not include the
administration of vaccines that are not in stock at this office but will include the order to obtain these vaccines
at your local pharmacy or health department.
~ Not Included: During a wellness exam any discussion/issue/concern addressed that is not related to preventive
can not be included as such with the wellness exam. This means addressing chronic illness up to and including
refill of medications, discussion of hypertension, diabetes, thyroid, cholesterol disease already established beyond
screening preventive discussion or addressing acute/problem related concerns like shoulder pain, sore throat,
allergies all would require an additional routine illness related office code that would be applicable to routine
annual deductible's, coinsurance and copays.
