Justin-D-KappelHere at Family Practice Center, we really do think of our medical team as a family. That includes our physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, office staff, and everyone else who works so hard to provide our patients with the best possible healthcare experience. It’s also very exciting to us to be able to welcome a new provider with an exciting new set of skills and experiences to our team. That’s why we are so thrilled to welcome Dr. Justin Kappel to Family Practice Center at our Atlanta (Sandy Springs) location.

Dr. Kappel began his education at the University of California at Berkeley where he earned his Bachelor of Arts with Highest Distinction, as well as Departmental Honors from the School of Public Health. He went on to earn his Master of Public Health in Epidemiology from Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health before completing his Doctor of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. Following his education, Dr. Kappel would complete further postdoctoral training at the University of Washington Family Medicine Residency and at the Helms Medical Acupuncture Institute.

Dr. Kappel brings a unique skill set to our practice. He has considerable training and experience practicing in a wide variety of medical areas including acupuncture, epidemiology, public health, and musculoskeletal medicine. His unique passion and ability for creating a synergy between primary care and integrative medicine techniques make Dr. Kappel a wonderful fit here at Family Practice Center. For anyone not familiar with these techniques, acupuncture is an essential component of traditional Chinese medicine, most commonly used to treat pain. Epidemiology is a public health practice that utilizes data to study and analyze patterns and determinants of diseases and other medical conditions in defined population groups. This diverse expertise combined with an excellent, patient-focused bedside manner allows Dr. Kappel to treat our patients in the knowledgeable, caring way that they deserve.

We feel very grateful to be able to welcome Dr. Kappel to our family and look forward to our patients getting the chance to meet and work with him. We are already booking appointments with Dr. Kappel at our original Atlanta (Sandy Springs) location, beginning in November 2021. For more information or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kappel or one of our other healthcare providers, contact Family Practice Center today. We are available for morning walk-in appointments and telemedicine visits. You can also follow us on Facebook for additional practice updates, health tips, news, and much more.
