Dr. Joseph A. DeLuca is now accepting new patients at the South Arkansas Adult Medicine Center on the Medical Center of South Arkansas campus, said Danna Taylor, vice president of operations/director physician services.
Located at 620 W. Grove St., Suite 202 in El Dorado, DeLuca provides preventive health care to help patients recognize and control risk factors. Services include comprehensive annual wellness visits, physical exams and evaluations, and care of chronic or long-term conditions.
DeLuca graduated medical school at St. George’s University School of Medicine and completed his residency at the University of Louisville. He most recently practiced with a family medical group in Camden and as a hospitalist at MCSA, where he will continue to serve.
Adults who have a personal or family history of chronic disease may choose an internal medicine physician because of the comprehensive care an internist is trained to provide. Internal medicine doctors are equipped to deal with a patient whose medical situation is diagnosed as common, rare, simple or complex.
“We want to help people lead healthy lives. We can best accomplish our goal by educating our patients about illness and disease prevention and working with them to complete routine physical exams and recommended screenings they may otherwise miss. This helps us identify a patient’s health issues before they become more serious,” DeLuca said. “Our focus is on the care for the whole person, not just the illness.”
South Arkansas Adult Medicine Clinic is now accepting patients 18 years and older. To schedule an appointment, call 870-863-2340. For more information, visit theMedCenter.net.
