Walk-in Patient Welcome
Urgent Care Services Without the Higher Urgent Care Copay
Dr. Shih and his staff have been treating Suwanee families, both sick and well, for over 20 years. At Suwanee Family Physicians, we care for children, adolescents, and adults with acute and chronic illnesses, minor injuries, sports injuries, hypertension, and diabetes. We focus on prevention and perform annual physicals, well-woman exams, and children’s general physicals.
At Suwanee Family Physicians, you get the best of both worlds. We provide urgent care services without the urgent care copay! We take walk-ins and care for patients with minor emergencies, including minor lacerations, sprains, and strains, and provide IV fluids. With lab and x-ray on-site, you can get immediate medical care without the long wait and higher copays of an emergency room or an urgent care facility.
Improve the quality of your life with individual or family counseling sessions at Suwanee Family Physicians. Choose either in-office or telehealth sessions with Jennifer Drury, LMFT, CAADC, our licensed professional counselor. Jennifer specializes in counseling patients with depression and anxiety, experiencing grief and loss, trauma and substance abuse, and relationship and LGBTQ concerns.

Airmen Medical and DOT Physicals
The Federal Aviation Administration requires that pilots and other required crew members of an aircraft hold a current medical certificate. Certificates and physicals can only be given by certified Aviation Medical Examiners (AMEs). Since 2004, Dr. Shih has been certified by the FAA to conduct flight physicals and issue certificates in classes 1, 2, and 3 pilots.
Dr. Shih believes in preventing illness and injuries before they occur. So schedule your annual physical exam today to discuss how to maintain your good health.
We offer same-day and Saturday appointments so your child can participate in school activities and sports teams. Your team may require this exam annually or more frequently, so call us today.

What Our Patients Are Saying
“I have been going to Suwanee Family Physicians for over 10 years. Every time I call, they are always able to fit me in. They are so knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and forthright. I have a great experience every time due to the fantastic staff Dr. Shin has put in place, Vilai, Ibe, Neverasa, Trasa, and Kanwal.”
- Dinese A.
"I moved to GA a few years ago and finally decided it was time to find a Dr. Shih’s staff was pleasant and answered all my questions. I had a physical, which they didn’t charge me for and a check up for some gout issues at the same time which I was informed about and happily paid, Dr Shih sat and talked with me for over 30 minutes discussing my medical history and what I wanted to change. I started his weight loss program 4 days later.”
- Jason S.
“Best Physical Checkup EVER! Nataly was so kind and joyful. I can not type enough positive adjectives for my visit. I really appreciate that Dr Shih has the EKG test available at his location now and I didn’t have to go to Gwinnett Medical to have that part done. Thank you Nataly! Until next year. All smiles”
- Sharon S.
“Suwanee family physicians is the best! Very friendly Drs and staff! I’ve been coming here for 5 years and always had good service. Trasa helped me today and was amazing!!! I didn’t even feel her draw my blood, she did a great job! Thanks!”
- Amanda H.
“I have been going here for almost 2 years now. I LOVE Dr. Shih and the entire staff. I actually driver 45 minutes just to go to his practice. They have always been so kind and generous. Dr. Shih was the first doctor I had in 6 years that actually listened to my issues and got me into a wonderful GI doctor who eventually removed my gallbladder after years of pain and issues. Dr. Shih is awesome. He truly cares and as long as I live in Georgia, I will continue to go to Dr. Shih!! The ladies in the office are a bonus! They are always so sweet and kind and go out of their way to help with whatever you need. I recommend this Physicians center to everyone!”
- Brittney R.
“I have been going to Suwanee Family Physicians since 2001 and have had great treatment and customer service. Dr. Shih has helped me quit smoking and helped me to understand that just because I quit, by eating healthier snacks, I did not have to gain weight. When I go in to the office I know that I will be treated with care and respect and I do not feel like I’m in a revolving door. He spends time with me and explains my diagnosis and treatment. My daughter also sees Dr. Shih. She has a rare disease and he treats her with the care and understanding she needs. He does my physical every year and he is a caring and understanding doctor that I drive from Loganville to see when needed.”
- Matt F.
“Every time I visit this office I always have such a great experience! I love the front receptionist staff as well as Trasa she is always so sweet and caring when I come in for my office visits! Dr. Shih is a great doctor and always addresses my concerns”
- Kayce L.
“I needed to see a doctor last minute and they were able to fit me in right away. The front receptionist was very friendly and I waited maybe 5 minutes before being taken to the back. While I did not see the doctor himself, my experience with both the nurse and PA was excellent!”
- Lauren O.
“We have been with Suwanee Family Physicians for over 10 years.
Dr. Shih takes the doctor-patient relationship to a different level. We consider him more of a life health coach, than our doctor. We highly recommend him, and his entire team.”
