As Wellstar continues to invest in providing quality health care in our communities, primary care patients can now receive care at the new Wellstar GME Internal Medicine Clinic – which also serves as a residency clinic for physicians in Training. Located at 747 South 8th Street, Suite B in Griffin, the clinic, along with the Griffin-Spalding Chamber of Commerce, is hosting a ribbon-cutting event on April 26 at 12 pm.
The GME Internal Medicine Clinic is dedicated to delivering high-quality, evidence-based care to people in the community. “We are your partners in providing whole-person care offering prevention strategies to help you achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle,” says Dr. Ashok Kumar Kanugula. “This may include routine checkups, managing chronic diseases, immunizations (influenza, tetanus) and age-appropriate screenings (bone density, blood panels), as well as treatment for acute issues, such as abdominal pain and respiratory infections. We can also provide information about nutrition, exercise and mental health.”
The clinic accepts a range of payment options and has established relationships with a variety of health insurance carriers. And to better serve the community, the clinic delivers services to those in need through Wellstar’s Financial Assistance Program.
In addition to providing care for patients, the clinic serves as a graduate medical education (GME) facility, training resident physicians. Residents will begin training at the clinic in July.
