Rachel Mellick, PA-C
I graduated from the Medical College of Georgia in 2011 with a Master of Physician Assistant degree. Upon graduation, I began working in a hospital’s Emergency Department where I worked for six (6) years. While in the Emergency Department, I learned to think quickly on my feet while caring for a wide variety of patients from the critically ill to those with relatively minor emergencies. Although I enjoyed the fast pace and critical nature of the Emergency Department, after having my first daughter, I left the Emergency Department to allow for more time to care for my family. I then began working at an urgent care clinic. This provided an environment that allowed opportunities to interact more fully with my patients, particularly through longer patient-provider interactions, more individualized treatment plans and closer follow up visits. During this time, my husband, Davis, began to develop a vision for a direct primary care practice. As I began to see the full potential of the direct primary care model, which would allow for better communication, more time with patients and overall ease of patient access— all while being affordable and cost-effective, I grew eager to come aboard. I have a particular interest in Women’s Health and aim to partner with patients to develop a care plan to meet the individualistic and comprehensive needs of women and teens in a primary care setting.
I have been married to my wonderful husband Davis for twelve years. We have one darling daughter, Charlotte, and reside in Evans GA. We are actively involved at Christ Church Presbyterian where I participate in Bible Study and enjoy serving in Children’s and Student Ministry.
In my spare time, I enjoy time with my family, running, gardening, and spending time outdoors.
