Dr. Andrew Malinchak, D.O.

Dr. Andrew Malinchak, D.O., is a dedicated and highly educated physician who brings a wealth of experience and a holistic approach to his practice. His journey in the medical field began with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Virginia Tech, followed by a Master of Science in Biology from Drexel University. Dr. Malinchak’s commitment to a comprehensive understanding of the human body led him to earn his Doctor of Osteopathy degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, emphasizing a hands-on approach to patient care.

With over 26 years of practice, Dr. Malinchak has treated patients in multiple locations, including Florida, Georgia (Covington), South Carolina, Maine, Connecticut, Michigan, and Nebraska. His dedication to global health was highlighted during a medical mission trip to Warsaw, Poland, in January and February of 2023, where he provided vital medical care to Ukrainian refugees affected by the war. As an osteopathic family physician, he employs his extensive experience to address a wide range of medical concerns, always striving to empower his patients on their health journey. Dr. Malinchak incorporates Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) when appropriate and has a special interest in teaching, as well as treating conditions such as diabetes, asthma, hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue syndrome, and implementing bio-identical hormone therapy for both women and men.

Originally from Arlington, Virginia, Dr. Malinchak has called Georgia home since 1997. He is happily married to his wife, Tracy, and outside of his medical practice, he enjoys a diverse range of interests. Dr. Malinchak is an avid golfer, a passionate traveler, a dedicated gardener, and an enthusiastic explorer of restaurants and cuisines. His personal commitment to a mostly vegan, whole foods, plant-based diet aligns with his holistic approach to health and wellness, reflecting his dedication to not only treating patients but also inspiring a vibrant and fulfilling life.

Dr. Christa 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 Direct 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. Continuing education is important to me as a participant in the Maintenance of Certification program through the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Within the community, I volunteer as the medical director for The Healing Bridge Clinic, a non-profit medical clinic caring for the underserved locally. As the medical director for Peachtree City Fire and Rescue, I enjoy working with firefighters, EMTs and paramedics with their medical protocols and procedures through education and training.

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.
