We're a direct primary care practice. Ultimately, that means we get to spend more time with you, whenever you need it, without having to jump through the hoops of a traditional medical practice. We love it, our current patients love it, and we think you will too.
Because we limit the number of patients we see, that opens up our schedule to be available when you need us.
We don't accept insurance. But don't let that scare you, because most of our patients actually save money as Family Medicine Of Pooler members. We can help you find the combination of healthcare, and health insurance that saves you money and results in better quality service.

"They're more than doctors. They're my friends." A real patient review on the great doctor-patient relationship in Direct Primary Care.
One of the biggest (and most important) differences you'll find between us, a Direct Primary Care medical practice, and other traditional family practices is the number of patients we see.
Most family docs in Savannah / Pooler routinely include 2,500 patients or more in their practices. Others around the country are even more packed- 3,000 to 4,000 patients!
With Family Medicine Of Pooler, you'll be part of an intimate family practice consisting of around only 600 patients. With this solid foundation, the advantages are inevitable, and plentiful.
As a member of Family Medicine Of Pooler, you'll have access to the following:
Our pricing system is very straightforward – which probably isn't what you're used to. There is a one-time registration fee of $99, then a low, age-based monthly fee. That's it...no copays, deductibles, or other hidden fees.
If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. In the meantime, take a look at our Membership Fees, browse our Frequently Asked Questions, or sign up to become a member below.

WTOC News Story about Family Medicine of Pooler
WTOC News story about Drs. Pete & Christi Ghaleb and their new #DirectPrimaryCare (#DPC) practicePosted by Family Medicine of Pooler on Saturday, February 11, 2017
POOLER, GA (WTOC) - A husband and wife doctor duo say they're changing the face of medicine by cutting out the insurance company aspect of medicine all together.
They say it's not about making more money, or even getting more patients, but providing better care for the patients they do have and building personal relationships.
After 8 years in practice with Memorial Health, Dr. Christi Ghaleb and her husband, Dr. Pete Ghaleb, started their own medical practice in 2010 to better serve patients in the style they've known to love: efficient, caring and attentive.
Family Medicine of Pooler was filled to capacity within a year, but in 2017, after years of increasing pressure from government and private insurance plans forcing the practice to see more patients in less time, they made the bold decision to change the way they deliver medical care, and they transformed their practice into the first Direct Primary Care practice in the Greater Savannah area.
After their successful transition to DPC, they are now proponents of the Direct Primary Care movement and are actively assisting other practices to accomplish the same.
