leah-macklinHere at Family Practice Center, our goals reach beyond just providing top-level primary care services. Our providers love being able to cultivate and build lasting, meaningful relationships with our patients over time. That means allowing our patients to better get to know our family medicine healthcare providers. This is why we are happy to present our spotlight provider of the month, Dr. Leah Macklin.

Dr. Leah Macklin grew up right here in Georgia. She obtained her undergraduate and master’s degrees from Georgia State University here in Atlanta. Once she had earned those degrees, Dr. Macklin attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM-GA). After completing medical school, she took part in a residency program at a family medicine practice in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Dr. Macklin is board-certified in both Family Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine.

Dr. Macklin specializes in nutrition and weight management and women’s health services. She has a unique passion for helping patients understand and implement healthy lifestyle adjustments that can help prevent and treat chronic medical conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, infertility, menopause and more. This includes diet and nutrition consultations, physical activity regimens, and much more.

We are extremely excited for our patients to get the chance to get better acquainted with Dr. Macklin and all of the incredible knowledge and experience she brings to Family Practice Center. To better serve our patients, appointments with Dr. Macklin are currently available at our Alpharetta and Cumming locations. This includes available appointments at our new weight management clinic at our Cumming location.
