"We want to offer more convenience to our expanding patient base.”
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) January 23, 2015
Atlanta’s oldest and most prestigious orthopaedic group continues to expand its services in the metro area by adding a ninth comprehensive clinic location, a sixth Physical Therapy location and plans to open additional offices in the near future. The newest clinic is located at 120 Stone Bridge Parkway in Woodstock, and, like the other eight Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic locations, will provide superior orthopaedic services for communities in Cherokee, Cobb, North Fulton and Bartow counties.
Conveniently located near the Towne Lake Parkway exit off Interstate 575, the Woodstock office opened in October of 2014. POC's newest Physical Therapy office is located at 105 Smokehill Lane in Woodstock, near the intersection of Hames Road and Highway 92. Additionally, all of POC's Physical Therapy offices are offering extended hours and are open until 7pm.
“We continue to receive an overwhelming number of requests by patients to expand our services, so after the successful opening of our Cumming office in 2013, we looked West toward Canton and Woodstock,” said Mike Butler, CEO of POC. “With Atlanta traffic what it is, we want to offer more convenience to our expanding patient base.” Butler said that additional clinics are planned for the near future with the goal being to ensure that the “quality care our patients have come to expect is provided both comprehensively and conveniently.”

Potts, Kingloff, Griffith and Thomas to our already extraordinary lineup of physicians.”
