About Us

 

First Georgia Physician Group is the group practice of Drs. David Arnall, Frank Cole, Joseph DeVeau, Charlotte Grayson, Michael Obenshain, Ferrol Sams III, James Sams, Anthony Slagel, and Harry Snapperman.

First Georgia Physician Group’s mission is to provide proactive care that is effective, meaningful, and tailored to each individual. We believe staying healthy is a team sport, not a solo competition. When you decide to be a patient of First Georgia Physician Group, you make a commitment to yourself and your healthcare team to make conscious choices that impact your daily life. The First Georgia Physician Group network was created with the philosophy that good doctors don’t just step in when you’re sick, they keep you from getting sick in the first place.

Our team of internists, dermatologists, and family medicine physicians have interests ranging from sports medicine to disease management. We offer same-day appointments for acute/urgent care, gynecology exams, comprehensive annual physicals, preventive and wellness care, chronic disease management, travel medicine and vaccinations, nutrition and fitness assessments, care of minor lacerations, custom wellness plans, vaccines/immunizations, laboratory services, cardiac evaluations (including EKGs), acne treatment, chemical peels, laser treatments, and microdermabrasion.

First Georgia Physician Group is a PatientCentered Medical Home (PCMH) that coordinates your care. We put the focus of your health care on you, where it belongs. Our practice assists new patients in securing their personal health records from their former provider. Medical record transfer request forms are available at all sites and on the practice website. In person assistance for completion of the transfer is also available.

We treat all our patients equally regardless of their coverage or lack of it. We accept all major insurance, Medicare, and self-pay. The Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) can help uninsured patients find affordable health insurance for your medical costs. Go to www.healthcare.gov for more information.

For care and clinical advice when the office is closed or during holidays, dial the office number of your provider. Please follow the prompts and the answering service will contact the on-call provider with your information or you can use the patient portal for non-emergent requests.

We provide same day appointments for urgent care and for routine care.

In the event of an emergency, dial 9-1-1 or go immediately to the nearest hospital.
