Dr. Ravi Patel, Board Certified in Internal Medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine, serves as the Medical Director for Walnut Place and oversees onsite medical care for residents. Serving as an in-house physician for the skilled nursing and assisted living residents allows him to provide continuity of care and convenient access to medical care.
Residents are cared for in the convenience of their apartments and do not have the stress of traveling outside the community. This can save the time, trouble, and expense of transporting residents to physician offices.
Dr. Patel can address a problem – such as pain, or an acute condition change, such as fever – promptly, and avoid an ER visit. Residents having access to an onsite physician allows for their current condition to be compared against their baseline easily and changes in their condition can be identified. This may prevent hospitalizations and ER visits and improve medication and disease management.
