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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Esslinger

from Keith in GA March 9, 2024 for Jeffrey D. Esslinger, MD

I switched to Dr. Esslinger after I had a horrible experience with my previous doctor. Not long after I switched I had an allergic reaction to a medication I started taking for my psoriasis. Dr. Esslinger worked through it with me and got me through the whole ordeal. After a horrible experience and being hospitalized twice he not only kept me out of the hospital but he dealt with the ordeal… See more

The best part is that we always feel… See more

from Karin Coleman in GA February 15, 2024 for Jeffrey D. Esslinger, MD

Dr Esslinger is a very compassionate doctor. He listens to what I have to say, with empathy and compassion. I believe he takes the whole person in mind when he sees patients. Body, mind and spirit.
He’s interested in knowing who he sees.
After being in the “system” of being referred to every specialist to figure out what to do with long covid and vaccine effects, no doctor was… See more

On the day I found out I was diabetic, I cried. Dr. Esslinger was very compassionate and encouraging when he delivered the news. I felt no judgment on his part and it didn't feel like a death sentence. We came up with a plan that didn't feel overwhelming. My A1C is 6:5 and I feel hopeful.

from Susan in GA April 2, 2023 for Jeffrey D. Esslinger, MD

Dr. Esslinger,
I really appreciate you and your staff. You are everything a good doctor should be. “I trust you”is the highest compliment I can give you and I don’t say that to many people.
Thank you and best wishes!

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

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.
