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 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.

Within the community, I volunteer at the Healing Bridge Clinic, a non-profit medical clinic caring for the underserved locally. I am also a member of the Drug Free Fayette initiative currently working on a Faith Summit to bring addiction awareness and resources to local faith communities. 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.

Dr. Elizabeth Jaggers

My name is Dr. Elizabeth Jaggers and I have a heart for prevention, eye contact with patients, and all the small details. As an Internal Medicine physician, I embrace evidence based guidelines, but also realize that wellness journeys are highly personalized. It’s my goal with every visit that my patients leave with a better understanding of their own health than what they came in with.

I have been in healthcare for two decades and actually started my career as an Emergency Room nurse at Emory. My voyage further into medicine began with a quarter life crisis…moving to Tel Aviv for medical school. Don’t worry, it turned out to be a great adventure. I earned my medical degree from Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West program in New York, NY. I remain board certified in Internal Medicine and have years of experience in primary care, hospital medicine, corporate wellness, concierge care, and obesity medicine.

I am also a mother to two free range children and the world’s sweetest rescue pitbull. Prior to children (and the pandemic), I fancied myself a world-traveller, but have learned the beauty of local exploration. Beyond that, I have an appreciation for amateur level workouts, podcasts of nearly all genres, and the magic of a well planned cheese plate.

Bridget Alsup, PA

Hello, my name is Bridget Alsup and I am thrilled to join the team at Health Springs Direct! As a board-certified physician assistant and functional medicine practitioner, I am passionate about partnering with my patients to improve their overall health and wellness.

I received my undergraduate education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between 2001-2005, and went on to complete my post-baccalaureate science coursework for physician assistant school at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In 2011, I graduated with a Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies from Eastern Virginia Medical School in
Norfolk, Virginia.

Following PA school graduation and as a military spouse, I have been blessed with opportunities to work as a physician assistant in variety of medical settings including Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Urgent Care.

In 2020, motivated by my own personal health challenges and a desire to further my understanding of health / wellness in light of the COVID pandemic, I began my practitioner certification training through The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM). Within the realm of functional medicine, I am passionate about gut-health and leveraging the power of lifestyle modifications to ameliorate negative symptoms, prevent / improve disease, and promote overall wellness.

Blending my allopathic and functional medicine education means I get the privilege of being able to provide patients with evidence-based, tailored, and collaborative treatment plans aimed at identifying and addressing the underlying root cause(s) of their illness.

When not caring for patients, you can find me spending time with my husband and two children, walking / jogging outdoors, cooking wholesome nutrient-dense meals, reading, traveling, and practicing yoga / Pilates.
