Family Medicine of Pooler is the first Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice in Savannah, Georgia. That ultimately means we get to spend more time with our patients without having to jump through the hoops of a traditional medical practice.
We love it, our patients love it, and we believe you'll love it too!
We purposely limit the number of patients we see, which opens our schedule to spend more time with you.
Freedom from bureaucracy has allowed us to change our focus from insurance billing/coding/reporting to actual patient care. But don't let the fact that we don't accept insurance scare you, because many of our patients subsequently save money in addition to receiving better quality healthcare.
#DirectPrimaryCare provides more time for doctors to spend directly on patient care
Have you ever felt like you're just another number in a packed waiting room? Not at Family Medicine of Pooler (FMOP).
While traditional family doctors will see thousands of patients, we intentionally limit our panel to only 600. This allows for extra time to get to know each and every member, developing much stronger patient-physician relationships.
"They're more than doctors. They're my friends." A real patient review on the great doctor-patient relationship in Direct Primary Care.
The advantages of our smaller patient panel are inevitable and plentiful, including:
Our pricing is transparent and easy to understand. 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.
* Employers with 5+ employees = $59/mo/adult.
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, Family Medicine of Pooler, in 2010 to better serve patients in the style they've known to love: efficient, caring and attentive.
Because 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 (DPC) practice in the Greater Savannah area in January 2017.
With their successful transition to DPC behind them, they are now proponents of the Direct Primary Care movement and are actively assisting other practices to accomplish the same.
