What We Treat

We offer a full array of services.

Back to Top
Internal Medicine

Grady board-certified internists offer a complete array of services for adults who are 16 years old or older. They emphasize preventive medicine to help you avoid illnesses.

Family Medicine

Our family medicine physicians are specially trained and board certified in all areas of primary care. Family medicine doctors diagnose and care for patients ranging from infants to seniors. These providers are trained in all areas of medicine to address your medical needs at every stage in your life. They can diagnose and treat everything from the common cold to chronic conditions.

Pediatrics

Grady pediatric specialists provide compassionate, skilled care focused on getting your child well. Our board certified pediatricians and nurse practitioners can care for your child, from infancy through adolescence. They will also help you understand how to keep your child healthy through medical education programs and advice during each appointment.

Women’s Health

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) doctors are specialized in caring for a woman’s complete health needs. They focus on gynecological care during pregnancy and childbirth, but they treat women of all ages.

Family Planning

Family Planning provides education, counseling, medical, and birth control services along with sexually transmitted infections (STI) screenings for adult men and women. Family planning is much more than deciding what birth control method to use. At Grady, we also provide screening services that help find serious health problems and infections sooner, so you can have better options for your future.

Geriatrics

As people live longer, their health needs often get more complicated. Grady family practice physicians can help to address the needs of seniors, including dietary requirements, physical examinations, mental health, and exercise recommendations. Their efforts aim to help you live a happier, healthier life.

Transitions of Care

Transitions of Care supports patients in the 30- to 60-day period following discharge to help keep them on the path to full recovery and to connect them with a primary care home. By providing quick follow-up appointments, this care team ensures patients follow their treatment plans, take their medications, and do what their doctors advise so they are not readmitted to the hospital.

Gender Center

The Gender Center supports gender transition for transgender and gender non-conforming people. We provide safe hormone treatment, routine exams, and emotional support. The care team includes physicians in internal medicine, endocrinology, psychiatry and mental health, dermatology, and gynecology. All to provide affirming, inclusive, patient-centered care.

Our Doctors

Every hospital treats patients. At Grady, we strive to treat them better, more efficiently, and more effectively. Our mission to care for all who need us attracts physicians from across the nation. They are drawn here by the knowledge that we test the limits of medicine by innovating existing standards of care, researching cutting-edge drugs and therapies, and exploring novel treatments.

Our zeal for innovation has given Grady a national reputation for medical advancement in areas like cancer, burn, stroke, diabetes, infectious diseases, women’s health, sickle cell, and other conditions cared for by specialists in our centers of excellence. Access to all of these accredited practices is available to every Grady patient and our collegial environment means that specialists routinely help to care for their colleagues’ patients.

Though clinicians are drawn by Grady’s reputation, most are employed by the Emory and Morehouse schools of medicine, which staff our medical services. Grady is one of a handful of U.S. health systems whose patients are cared for by faculty members of two medical schools. This reinforces our commitment to ongoing innovation.
