Gwinnett Medical Center recently celebrated the opening of its second Primary Care & Specialty Center in Gwinnett. The new state-of-the-art facility is located in Peachtree Corners and conveniently provides corporate health services, primary care, 3D Mammography, and X-Rays, as well as a full suite of specialty services, all in one building.
Following a precedent established two years ago with the Primary Care & Specialty Center in Suwanee, the new facility on Peachtree Pkwy. is designed to provide comprehensive, accessible healthcare services to the community.
“We’re trying to provide a system where a patient can receive primary care and see a specialist in one building. This kind of model really wraps services around the patient, rather than doing it the traditional way where services were based on what was more convenient for the provider,” Mike Boblitz, GMC’s Vice President of Planning and Business Development, said.
The Peachtree Corners center now offers specialty services, including orthopedics, cardiology, OB/GYN, and gastroenterology, and neurology “is coming soon.” Boblitz explained, “If a patient has a primary care visit and that patient has to see a cardiologist, it can be handled right here.” GMC also provides corporate services, such as drug tests, flu shots, and immunizations and a range of other services in a stress-free, spa-like, one-stop environment.
Dr. Kathryn Parris, MD, is the Medical Director of the Gwinnett Physicians Group and will be providing OB/GYN services at the new center. “I’m coming here every Wednesday, and what we intend to provide is comprehensive OB/GYN services. We encourage women to come here for their annual physical exams and, if needed, to take advantage of our 3D mammogram-capabilities. The 3D Mammogram is very exciting because it will allow same-day visits where women can come in and get a complete physical and mammogram on the same day,” Dr. Parris said.
Meanwhile, Dr. Barbara Joy Jones, DO, will provide primary care all week long. As a graduate of GMC’s Graduate Medical Education Program, she is committed to GMC’s mission to enhance customers’ experience by providing friendly, whole-person care in Peachtree Corners.
“Having those full services available right here is great. They will be offering drug testing and other kinds of services for corporate users. We have a large employer base, so there are a lot of employers who can take advantage of this center for physicals for their employees,” said Mike Mason, Mayor of Peachtree Corners.
“We think we have a pretty good model,” Boblitz said. “This is our second Primary Care and Specialty Center, and the Suwanee location has been very well-received, so we hope to see the same here.”
The new center is located at 5277 Peachtree Pkwy., Peachtree Corners, Ga. 30092 and is now open to the public. Appointments can be booked by phone (678) 312-8430 and online at gwinnettmedicalcenter.org/ptc.
