About Us

Our practice is designed to cover your family’s needs, at whatever stage of life.  Your family can get pediatric care for young children and internal medicine for adults and seniors.  At Blackshear Family Practice, formerly known as Georgia Physicians South, you’ll find caring, qualified doctors and staff to care for you and your family every step of the way.

We provide uncompromising treatment to patients suffering from chronic illness such as hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidemia (often leading to cardiovascular disease as well as kidney and eye problems). As part of our comprehensive treatment, we work closely with physicians specializing in coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic renal failure, and cancer. We value quality of life for our patients and promote strategic goals for maintaining it. Through routine examinations and regular blood testing, we can often delay (and sometimes prevent) progression of chronic illnesses, allowing patients to live healthier, more fulfilling lives.

Our physicians are proactive when it comes to prevention and encourage a healthy lifestyle. As part of our prevention program, we offer:

  • Well visit checkups for both children and adults
  • Individual diabetes education classes
  • Regular monitoring of lab results for patients suffering from diabetes and hypertension
  • Assessment and monitoring of patient medication in efforts to detect early kidney or liver damage which may prevent (or slow the progression of) permanent end-organ damage

We’re proud to have Resident Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Physician’s Assistants as part of our team here at Blackshear Family Practice. Working in conjunction with our team of Physicians, our entire staff is here to deliver you the highest level of medical knowledge and Southern Hospitality.
