The Braselton Clinic is now located on the second floor of Medical Plaza 1 on Northeast Georgia Health System’s River Place campus at 5875 Thompson Mill Road.
The Braselton Clinic is an internal medicine practice staffed by two board-certified physicians, James Jackson and Gary Dalley and two physician assistants, Lorie Campbell and Dawn Itzie.
“We’ve basically just moved across the street to River Place,” said Jackson, a Braselton native. “It’s very easy for patients to find us in Medical Plaza 1.”

Village Nursing Care plans nursing course
A private home care provider in Northeast Georgia has been approved to teach a course for Certified Nursing Assistants.
Village Nursing Care will offer the first CNA certification course beginning Oct. 28. It will consist of class time, labs located at a combination of Village Nursing Care headquarters and at Lanier Village Estates and off-site clinicals. Clinicals will give students hands-on experience in caring for clients under the supervision of professionals, and will be conducted at Lanier Village Estates’ Willowbrooke Court Medical Center and at Mountain View Health and Rehabilitation Center in Clayton.
“We’ve been working for several years to bring this about,” said Debra Lang, Village Nursing Care’s executive director. “The requirements for us to make this happen are pretty strenuous, but in order to ensure we are and remain fully staffed with fully skilled and trained field service employees, we wanted to take this step. It will enable VNC to be the best we can possibly be for our clients.”
The first course will accommodate approximately 10 students. Cost for the course will be $550, with a $50 registration fee that applies toward tuition. Karen Barton, an LPN who has 15 years of nursing experience, will be the instructor.
