Southeastern Geriatric Healthcare Group
Benton House is proud to partner with Southeastern Geriatric Healthcare Group. This team of highly trained clinicians, led by locally and nationally renowned geriatric specialist Dr. Gary S. Figiel, works with Benton House residents and family members with the goal of providing the very best in senior healthcare.
Clinicians regularly visit Benton House communities to assist residents and families. Participation with Southeastern Geriatric Healthcare Group is completely voluntary and residents continue to see their primary physician. However, many families have benefited from Dr. Figiel and his talented and experienced team.
