We must continue to create an awareness of geriatric house calls so that we can reach all those homebound and so that we can recruit physicians to provide care for them in the home.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Leading geriatric house call practice, Schuylkill Medical Associates, garnered attention from the editors at Philadelphia Life magazine in the August “Top Docs” print and digital edition. The magazine features medical director and founder Dr. Christine Pluta, DO, and her team of physicians.
The "Top Docs" article titled, “Charting a New Course in Geriatric Home Care,” highlights Dr. Pluta and her medical team’s outstanding work ethic for caring for the elderly and homebound patients. According to the article, with the “rising population of elderly residents in need of primary care but in the unfortunate position of not being able to access it in the traditional office setting,” SMA proves to be the perfect option.
“We are into our 2nd year of business and grateful to all those who have supported SMA and believe that our elderly deserve access to good medical care,” says Dr. Pluta. “We must continue to create an awareness of geriatric house calls so that we can reach all those homebound and so that we can recruit physicians to provide care for them in the home.”
Philadelphia Life is a monthly lifestyle publication with distribution through Center City and its surrounding neighborhoods. From health and beauty to people, dining, arts and culture, Philadelphia Life garners attracts an upscale readership through its localized editorial content.
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.
