My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My passion as a primary care physician is to provide you with highly personalized care and attention while employing my philosophy of "common sense" medicine. 

In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I am able to see patients for same-day or next-day appointments, which can minimize trips to urgent care and emergency rooms, thereby saving time and money. In addition, there is very little waiting in my office, which gets you back to your life as quickly as possible. 

It’s important to me that my patients feel “connected” to their doctor, and I’m reachable through email, phone and texting (when appropriate) after hours and on weekends for their urgent health issues. A significant portion of my time with patients is dedicated to helping them improve their health through lifestyle changes, with the goal of minimizing medications, unnecessary testing and hospitalizations. I utilize the newest concepts in medicine to enhance the care I provide, including advanced preventive testing as well as seminars and classes to educate patients about their health.

My internal medicine practice is located in Cartersville, Georgia, and currently serves Bartow, Cherokee, Cobb, Gordon and Polk counties, including the towns of Cartersville, Acworth, Kennesaw, Rome, Dallas, Canton and Woodstock. We focus on wellness and preventive care in addition to all aspects of primary care. I am affiliated with Cartersville Medical Center.

About the Practice/Practice News

Change is significantly affecting the healthcare landscape with ongoing implications for doctors and patients. It’s nearly impossible to navigate such a complex system alone, but with me as your ally, we can get through it together and keep you on the path to optimal health.

The best healthcare starts with a physician partner who truly knows you, your needs and your goals. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you come first. Third parties and red tape will not interfere with my ability to care for you the way you deserve.

from Georgann in GA March 10, 2020 for Jeffrey D. Esslinger, MD

When I first met Dr. Esslinger, my husband now ex, went to see him when he was on Shallowford Road in Marietta/Roswell area. We both fell in love with him along with his kindness, professionalism, and caring personality. He then moved down by the Northside Hospital area with a group, in which I loved the area cause it was near my job. So easy to get to the appointments. Once he decided a group… See more

from Libby in GA March 10, 2020 for Jeffrey D. Esslinger, MD

Back in 2003 I had lost my husband to cancer. I went into a deep depression. Dr. Esslinger arranged for me to see some mental health professionals. It really turned my life back to normal. He has been an excellent doctor all these years and I can't imagine going to another.

from Libby in GA March 8, 2018 for Jeffrey D. Esslinger, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Esslinger since I first moved to Cartersville in 2003. I had just lost my husband to cancer and thought I was losing my mind. He connected me to the right people to help me through this crisis. He has always been a kind, understanding doctor. He is very thorough in his practice and I love his staff, too.

from Kenneth in GA March 8, 2018 for Jeffrey D. Esslinger, MD

Dr. Esslinger,

Happy National Doctors Day!
While it has been my misfortune to have had an unusually large number of illnesses (for me) over the past few years, it is most fortunate that I have been under your care during this time. I really appreciate you for inviting me to continue as one of your MDVIP patients. I know you re-established your practice in order to have fewer… See more

from Karen in GA February 28, 2018 for Jeffrey D. Esslinger, MD

I have always been pretty healthy, but I've had some issues this year--bronchitis, flu, sprained ribs from coughing, and bladder problems. Now, thanks to Dr. Esslinger, I am pretty much back to normal. It is a great comfort to know that he has my health records and keeps me up-to-date on things I need to know to stay healthy and knows what to do when something goes wrong. Thank you, Dr… See more
