Kaiser Permanente of Georgia Now Offering Sports Medicine Services
Kaiser Permanente is pleased to announce that we have added Sports Medicine to the growing list of services that we now offer our metro Atlanta members.
Michael Bakheet, MD, will see patients at the Kaiser Permanente Gwinnett Medical Office on Mondays and Fridays beginning September 7. The initial focus of the department is on sports-related injuries, physicals, and nutrition consultations and procedures.
In the future, Dr. Bakheet’s scope of practice will expand and he will see members at additional medical centers.
Dr. Bakheet received his medical degree from The University of Sint Eustatius School of Medicine. He completed his residency at the Medical College of Georgia and his fellowship in primary care/sports care at Toledo Hospital in Toledo, OH. In addition to his clinical expertise, Dr. Bakheet has served as team physician for numerous college and high school teams and other sporting events.
Kaiser Permanente members can schedule an appointment with Dr. Bakheet by contacting the Call Center at 404-365-0966 and requesting a sports medicine appointment. The copay for a sports medicine appointment is the same as a primary care visit.
For pediatric appointments (5 years and older), members should schedule the visit with the Gwinnett Internal Medicine department and request a sports medicine appointment.
