Patient Education

At Medical Associates of North Georgia, we know how important it is for you to understand the medical condition, tests, diagnostic procedures, and health care programs you may be undergoing. The more you understand the medical problems or issues you may be facing and the medical processes involved in diagnosing and treating those problems, the better prepared you will be to participate in and move towards recovery. With that end in mind, we strive to provide you with knowledge that can help you face your medical care and services with less stress and a more positive attitude.

Below we have multiple links to many different sites to help you understand your condition(s).
*NIH is the National Institutes of Health, *CDC is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
