Meet Dr. Springston
Hello, my name is Christa Springston. As a board-certified Internal Medicine medical doctor (M.D.), I have a desire to offer improved care for people and their health outside of the conventional healthcare system. HealthSprings Internal Medicine was born in 2020 after the Covid-19 pandemic opened my eyes to the benefits of telemedicine and need for more flexibility for myself, my family and my patients. Increasingly disenchanted with insurance companies’ red tape interfering with my relationships and connections to patients, the Direct Primary Care model of practice seemed a natural progression.
As an advocate for whole-body health, I will help guide you in behavioral, dietary and habitual improvements to maximize your energy and functionality as well as to prevent life-altering disease processes. I practice medicine based on continually evolving scientific evidence, safety and efficacy while always taking into consideration the entire individual in front of me.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas Christian University with a bachelor of science in biology, and received my medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 2006. I was residency trained at Christiana Care Health System in Newark, Delaware and SSM St. Mary’s Health System in St. Louis, Missouri. At St. Mary’s, I was given the opportunity to stay on and teach as a fourth-year chief resident and teach the current doctors-in-training.
Through many cross-country moves with my (now retired) husband’s military career, I have had the opportunity to experience and hone many different types of medical care. I have worked as a hospital medicine doctor (hospitalist), intensive care unit physician (intensivist), occupational medicine provider, acute and urgent care physician and primary outpatient Internal Medicine provider.
I am certified to perform Class 1, 2 and 3 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Exams and Department of Transportation (DOT) exams. Continuing education is important to me as a participant in the Maintenance of Certification program through the American Board of Internal Medicine, most recently taking and passing my board exams in November 2020.
Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, I have called Georgia home since 2015. I enjoy time with my family, Horned Frog football and especially, living and working through Him.
