Primary Care Practice (PCP) serving the Greater Chattahoochee Valley Area

About Valley DPC

Our mission is to provide the kind of healthcare our grandparents remember: Healthcare that allows patients to visit the doctor when they need to, healthcare that encourages providers and patients to spend time talking about problems and solutions, healthcare that doesn’t break any banks, and healthcare that is direct and involves no insurance companies second-guessing decisions or driving up costs.
We also believe healthcare should be personal, and providers accessible. Our primary care practice in the Valley is owned and operated by two Valley natives: Dr. Zachary Smith, D.O. and NP Stephanie Chappell, MSN, FNP-C.
We’re not a corporate conglomerate; we care what happens to you and to our community because we live here, the people we love live here, our families live here, and you live here.
