Welcome to our practice...
In January 2015, Dr. James Capó and Dr. Kelleen Fitzgerald opened a Direct Care Membership Practice to provide a more personalized experience for our patients. This type of practice requires that we limit the size of each of our practices to enhance the medical services we provide and to give our members the time and attention they deserve.
This personal level of health care offers benefits beyond today's typical "traditional" system. Understanding the dynamics of an individual’s health issues, family issues, risks and possible exposures are all important in providing the highest level of care. A Direct Care Membership Practice adds depth to the patient-physician partnership and allows us to decide on the best treatment plan together.
Our goal is to manage and anticipate your unique healthcare needs and to provide comprehensive primary care in a relaxed setting at an unhurried pace. We will partner with you on a personal level to help you achieve the optimal health we all value. We will closely collaborate on what it takes to stay on the path to wellness. You will be welcomed by the relaxed, individualized attention you receive from everyone in our office.
Feel free to call us at 404.303.8651 to learn more about our practice. We look forward to seeing you in our office.
Poison Ivy: What to Watch For
Summer in the South is a beautiful (albeit hot!) time to relish the great outdoors, but enjoying nature doesn't come without its hazards. Metro Atlanta has great hiking, whether it's a leisurely stroll on the shady paths along the Chattahoochee River or a steady climb of rocky trails leading into the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. But wherever you may be experiencing nature -- even if it's just in your own backyard -- remember to keep an eye out for poison ivy. It's a surefire way to spoil a good day in the great outdoors!
"Leaves of three, let it be." Most of us are familiar with that easy-to-remember rhyme to avoid poison ivy, but have you heard of this one? "Berries white, run in fright!" Yes, some varieties of poison ivy sprout berry-like fruit starting in August. And another: "Raggy rope, don't be a dope!" While most of us are probably beyond our tree-climbing years, it's important to know that some poison ivy vines grow along tree trunks and have a furry, raggy appearance.

Our practice is smaller and personalized to better know you.
