Offering Primary and Specialty Care to Buckhead and Midtown

The Emory Clinic Buckhead celebrates its expanded facility grand opening today at 1938 Peachtree Rd., NW, Suite 705, in Buckhead. This site is conveniently located between Buckhead and Midtown and serves as a valuable component of The Emory Clinic outside the main clinic facility on the Emory University campus in DeKalb County. The clinic is also welcoming the addition of two new internal medicine physicians, Kelleen Fitzgerald, M.D. and Nan Monahan, M.D.

The Emory Clinic Buckhead's expanded facility now offers 11,000 square-feet accommodating 18 patient exam rooms, waiting area and procedure room. The Emory Clinic Buckhead houses 5 full-time primary care physicians and subspecialty care services.

In addition to internal medicine, the Emory Clinic Buckhead also offers comprehensive physicals, health screenings, on-site lab and x-ray, mammography, flexible sigmoidoscopy and treadmill stress testing.

The clinical services offered at The Emory Clinic Buckhead are seen "as an important extension of the health care centers which have developed since The Emory Clinic began its off-campus expansion four years ago," says William Winkenwerder Jr., M.D., vice president for Primary Care, EMORY HEALTHCARE, and associate director, The Emory Clinic, Inc. "This location offers greater opportunities for area residents to receive both primary care and specialty care services from Emory Clinic physicians. In addition to primary care internal medicine, we have plans to make available important specialty services such as cardiology, dermatology, orthopaedics and general surgery."

"We are very pleased with our new facility," says Ben Spearman, M.D., medical director at The Emory Clinic Buckhead. "The increase in space and efficiency allows us to do an even better job for our patients."

The architect for the new facility is Design & Construction Management, Inc. and the contractor is B.H. Payne Construction, Inc.
