Scott Leeth, M.D.

Family Practice

For the past 6 years I have practiced family medicine here at Mason Primary Care in Duluth, Georgia. The prior 14 years I practiced family medicine in Cartersville, Georgia with the largest private multispecialty group in the state. For ten of those years I managed 15-30 inpatients every 6-7 weeks for one week at a time. I had full ICU privileges and did most of my own critical care. The past 10 years have been outpatient care only, although I do write initial admission orders for the hospitalist. I have participated in various clinical research in diabetes and hypertension through our clinical research department as well as an independent investigator. I spoke publicly in the Cartersville City School system and in the community for 10 years. Most recently I have spoken publicly for Whole Foods Market on medical nutrition. I recently received my certification in nutrition from the Nutritional Education Institute. I am the first allopathic medical doctor in the nation to be certified under this program created by Joel Fuhrman, MD.

My practice is Hippocratic and intuitive. I enjoy teaching patients how to listen to their own bodies and how to be their own advocates in a confusing medical world. I am a minimalist and practice lifestyle medicine: less doctors, less medicine, better health. "Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food." I attempt to be as scientific as possible but also intuitive and commonsensical.
