About Us

About the medical clinic

North Georgia Internal Medicine was established in 2002 to create a center of excellence for comprehensive and compassionate care of adult patients. We are committed to a highly individualized approach as we partner with our patients to maximize their health and sense of well being. Our providers participate in the Medicare program and are contracted with major health plans.

As we continuously strive to improve the pathways of communication with our patients and their specialists, we have adopted a completely paperless system of charting. Importantly, it allows for our patients to communicate by e-mail with the office to obtain answers to their non-urgent medical questions or request medication refills, referrals or billing information.

North Georgia Internal Medicine is extremely pleased to offer our services to the WellStar employee family as in-network providers.  

 

If we may answer any questions for you, please contact our Practice Administrator, Tami, at 678-494-4450.

 

Thank you.
