Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 10, 2013
Atlanta’s oldest orthopaedic group, currently celebrating its 60th Anniversary, continues to expand its services in the Metro area by adding an eighth location. The new clinic is located at 1505 Northside Boulevard, Suite 3100, Cumming, GA 30041, and, like other Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic locations, will provide superior and comprehensive orthopaedic services for the communities in Forsyth, Gwinnett and Hall Counties. Drs. Pike, Gupta, Langenbeck, Cassinelli, Pennington and Silcox are the Physicians on rotation at the new clinic.
Conveniently located near the Buford Highway exit off of 400, in the Northside Hospital complex, the newest addition to Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic’s expansive support of the Greater Metro Atlanta area, opened to best serve the large number of their patients from those Northern communities.
“We received an overwhelming number of requests by our patients to expand our service in Northeast Atlanta, so we picked a location that we felt was central and convenient for them,” said Dr. Pike, who will be leading the team of Doctors at the clinic. “Our older patients, as well as our younger athletes and weekend warriors, were really happy to have the excellent orthopaedic care they expect and deserve much closer to home.”
Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic has a long history of investing in the communities it serves, and the Doctors on rotation there will be looking for opportunities to provide support to schools, organizations and events in the area. Dr. Pike adds, “As the team Orthopaedists for the Gwinnett Braves, we are easy to find at Coolray Field on game day, but we also want to help prevent and care for the sports injuries that happen at local schools and community events as well.”
