Geriatric Care Doctor in Chattanooga, TN

At Partners in Care, PLLC, we focus on treating people, not just diseases. No matter what stage of life you’re in, we’re ready to be your partner in health and wellness.

Dr. Melvin offers attentive in-home, palliative care for seniors in the office or in the comfort of the patient’s home or assisted-living facility. We focus on a partnership and the plan of care desired by the patient, their family, and their family practitioner.

If you or a loved one is homebound with a serious injury or illness, we will work with you or your family to create a customized care plan that meets your needs. This includes focusing on managing symptoms and providing treatment or therapy to promote more comfort and a better quality of life.

We visit nursing homes and assisted-living centers to extend care. We also coordinate patient care with necessary resources such as physical therapy, in-home sitter services, and more. Our providers ensure that all POA and caregivers are included in the plan of care.

Our in-home, palliative senior care services include:
Routine check-ups
Hospitalization follow-ups
Sick visits

In-home care can benefit seniors and other adult patients by providing chronic disease symptom management and emotional support in the presence of kind, caring, and knowledgeable healthcare providers. This is a good option for homebound or home-limited patients who may have difficulty traveling to a doctor’s office.

Our patients love our senior care services: 

“Best geriatric doctor in the Chattanooga area by far. Most caring, compassionate, loving doctor I have ever seen. She is excellent. She provides the best possible care even for elderly people. A very prominent internist who had been treating my Dad said of course he is going to die. He is 80 years old. What do you expect? Then took Dad to Dr. Melvin where she treated him with respect and care. She even visited him at his home when he was too ill to go to her office. She showed a dying patient love and compassion not contempt like so many other uncaring, unprofessional doctors” - Vitals.com

“When my mother-in- law came out of another state we were given A+ service and we can not thank them enough. My wife and I use them along with my son and think they are great. We were at another Doctor's office and this office is great in comparison. Highly recommend them.” - J. Visser 

“Best staff and most caring, concerned folks we have ever had on our side!  Short wait times, don't feel rushed when there, all information available at the portal so you can check after your appointment if you forget something!  Just great!” - K. Groves
