About our Practice
Established in 2010 to meet the primary care needs of Cumming, Forsyth County and the North Fulton area, Lanier Adult Medicine welcomes the opportunity to show you why "our practice makes perfect."
We are excited to be one of only two Internal Medicine practices in Georgia to be a pilot office for the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). The Patient Centered Medical Home is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care. A key concept is the relationship-centered personal medical home for all patients, which serves as the focal point where a medical practice team takes responsibility for the ongoing coordinated and comprehensive care of patients. We are in the process of earning our NCQA certified PCMH certificate for 2012.
