Experiences that Benefit Your Care
Our strong link with a leading medical institution significantly benefits your care as a patient. While we are affiliated with Mercer University School of Medicine, your doctor won’t be a medical student or new to the industry. The experienced doctors you see are also professors and clinic instructions at Mercer University School of Medicine, responsible for educating the next generation of doctors. This puts them in touch with the latest advances in medicine, always searching for new and efficient ways to treat patients effectively. We prioritize creating an excellent patient experience and ensuring you are cared for with compassion.
Our Commitment to Rural Healthcare
We understand the need for reliable access to specialty care, especially in rural Georgia. Mercer University School of Medicine is committed to expanding to serve rural Georgia. All three of our rural clinics bring quality primary care to underserved areas. For access to more specialists, we are on the cutting-edge of the telemedicine trend, saving patient’s time and money by bringing the medical specialist to them. The medical school also encourages students to undertake rural rotations, giving them the skills needed to serve rural areas and serve communities in need of health care.
