Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
As a leading geriatric house call practice in the Delaware Valley region, Dr. Christine Pluta and the Schuylkill Medical Associates team is proud to welcome new hire Dr. Aliya Ali.
“Dr. Ali brings great experience to our team with her palliative care background,” says Dr. Christine Pluta, medical director of Schuylkill Medical Associates. “She has all of the qualities that I look for in a house call physician and we are excited to expand in to Montgomery County.”
The new physician joins SMA to provide geriatric home care in Montgomery County, PA. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and Palliative Care Medicine.
Dr. Ali states: "While working for years in the inpatient health care environment, I became aware of how poorly some patients were cared for in their outpatient setting. I believe that patients deserve thorough follow-up and teaching from a caring outpatient physician. If elderly homebound patients receive thorough medical care as an outpatient, it will improve their quality of life, reduce costs and allow them to minimize their hospitalizations. I decided to commit my career to this mission by joining SMA."
Homebound patients will benefit from Schuylkill Medical Associates if it is a hardship for them to get to their primary doctor due to medical issues. SMA physicians provide chronic disease management, pain management, preventative care, end of life care, and ongoing communication with families and nursing.
