18 Jul Full-time Geriatrician Supervises Park Springs’ On-Site Wellness Clinic
Even though the State of Georgia is facing a shortage of geriatric specialists (see this recent front page article by David Markiewicz in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution), all the Members of Park Springs, Atlanta’s premier campus-style retirement community, have access to Park Springs’ on-site Geriatricians who supervise the Park Springs Wellness Clinic.
As Markiewicz writes in his article, “… a geriatrician [is] specially trained to care for the elderly. […] During their fellowships, doctors learn about the physiology of aging, common illnesses in the elderly and their effects, and issues such as patients taking multiple prescription medications.”
The Clinic provides Park Springs Members with convenient and comprehensive senior care. The excellent staff at the Wellness Clinic handles routine office visits and lab work, teaches health classes and disease prevention, and gives blood pressure and immunization clinics.
Our Geriatricians oversee the Park Springs Wellness Clinic, including triage and walk-ins. From questions about symptoms to immediate first-aid care, the Park Springs Wellness Clinic is available to all Members regardless of their primary care physician.
