Direct Primary Care

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!

Less Patients = More Time for You

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

Personal Care

A Personal Relationship with your Personal Physician

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.


A Magic Number and Everything That Goes With It.

The advantages of our smaller patient panel are inevitable and plentiful, including:

Unlimited access to your doctor

Literally. After hours, weekends, holidays – there's no bad time to receive excellent medical care.

Extended, relaxed visits

You won't feel rushed and will have time to ask all your questions. Part of the relationship you'll build with your doctor is based on your understanding of your care. That's what we call personal healthcare.

Same / next day scheduling

Because our physicians have reserved their time for a select few, there will be no "squeezing you in." You're a priority and you'll feel like one.

Full access via technology

You'll be able to reach our team via phone, e-mail, text, webcam and more. The sky is the limit.

An annual physical

This exam will be fitted to your personal medical needs. It's all about you and your specific goals for wellness.

Diagnostic and procedural benefits at no extra costs

EKG, Trigger Point & Joint Injections, Pap Smears, Breathing Treatments, Cryotherapy, Lesion Removal, Laceration Repair, just to name a few.

Wholesale labs and medication costs

We pass our benefits right to you.

I like having a young 'spunky' M. D. like youself for my primary care physician.
I am sure you have tons of patients like me who are anxious for your new practice. In fact, please tell your new staff to reserve the first appointment for me!:)
Dr. Ghaleb, I'm so glad to hear you will be back to business soon. You are a fantastic physician as well as an outstanding individual. I don't believe I've ever told a doctor I look forward to seeing them soon; but, in fact that is the case. Best wishes to you and your family.
Dr.Ghaleb,I am so glad to find you, I was very upset thinking I was going to loose the best doctor I have ever had.I know you will find the perfect practice to fit you and all of your patient's need's.

About Us

Company history

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.
