Patients Come First at Laureate Medical Group

Providing the highest quality medical care for patients has always come first at Laureate Medical Group. But the practice’s reputation has been built on a more fundamental philosophy: provide excellent medical care and do it with sincere compassion. For nearly 50 years, that has been the foundation of Laureate’s mission and, today, serves as the basis for the practice’s entire operation.

In each office location––Midtown, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta and Jonesboro––Laureate’s board certified physicians and medical staff provide a variety of non-invasive diagnostic tests on-site, including lab tests, EKG’s, echocardiograms, X-rays, bone density tests and stress tests. In addition, the practice offers specialized care in rheumatology and endocrinology, including thyroid sonography and aspiration, as well as a comprehensive diabetes education program that is accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators.

For patients with particular dietary needs, Laureate’s staff nutritionists can provide personal counseling for conditions that may be related to food choices, habits, and environmental factors. Designed by registered dietitians and supervised by Laureate physicians, the programs are based on lifestyle approaches and can help treat individual health problems such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes, fatigue, poor immune response, and allergies. Three nine-week weight loss classes are held each year as well.

For those patients who may be eligible to participate, the practice conducts clinical trials through the Laureate Clinical Research Group. Trials are carefully monitored by board certified physicians and trained staff, and are designed to test the efficacy of new drugs or to study the use of available medications for new purposes.

Although Laureate Medical Group always puts its patients first, the practice never

forgets the community it serves. Each year, the practice selects charitable organizations to support with both time and money and frequently makes donations to victims of natural disasters.

The physicians of Laureate Medical Group have built a practice that reflects their own philosophy: create a caring work environment and provide the highest level of medical care. That ensures the best possible experience for each patient.
