Kay Entrekin, MD of Atlanta Gynecology & Obstetrics, P.C. was recognized along with three other individuals as outstanding volunteers who have done amazing work in the community. She received the Golden Hammer Award in honor of her work in helping to provide affordable housing to DeKalb County residents.

Blue Cross, individual, small group, and large group health plans now cover 3D mammography, which is available at both the Hillandale and North Decatur campuses.
Beginning August 1, National accounts will be covered.
Medicare and Cigna also covers 3D mammography as does UMR for DeKalb Medical employees. Patients whose insurance does not cover this enhanced service can pay $100 in addition to their insurance to receive a 3D mammography.
Will we still collect $100 from patients choosing 3D if they are not on the covered plans.

The DeKalb Medical Foundation will host its 23rd annual Charles B. Eberhart Memorial Golf Classic Monday, Aug. 28, 2017, at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek. Proceeds from this event will support improvements to the operating rooms at DeKalb Medical.
This year, for the first time, the tournament will offer one flight with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. The event is expected to sell out quickly.
This event will benefit DeKalb Medical’s surgical suite renovation project. Improvements to the O.R. will include new equipment, such as tables, monitors and updated lighting. This new environment will streamline surgical procedures, reduce wait times and provide our patients with quality care supported by the most advanced technology.
Dee Keeton, chair of the annual tournament, is grateful for the support of the many participants and sponsors, and would like to especially express her gratitude to BakerHostetler and Bendin Sumrall & Ladner LLC, who are serving as title sponsors.
“We couldn’t do this event without the support of the community. Our title sponsors have given generously to ensure the success of this tournament,” she said. “DeKalb Medical is committed to providing specialized and personalized care for our patients, and we are excited that this tournament can help us better serve all those who turn to us for surgical needs.”

DeKalb Medical is one of the first four study sites to be activated for a phase 2 clinical trial evaluating CF-301 in patients with Staphylococcus Aureus Bacteremia. Adam Bressler, M.D. of Infectious Disease Specialists of Atlanta (IDSA), is the principal investigator in this trial which is a new concept in medicine that may someday replace antibiotics.
According to Robin Dretler, M.D., also with IDSA, this is a groundbreaking study. “In this study, we will treat staph infections at DeKalb Medical with the current standard of care antibiotics, but half will get an additional dose of a bacteria killing lysin from a recombinant (medically created) bacteriophage.”
We are proud of each of our DeKalb Medical doctors. Dawn Mandeville, MD (pictured on the left ) was featured on one of the Atlanta Magazine covers.
“I feel very fortunate to be recognized for doing something that I love!” said Dawn Mandeville, M.D. She was one of four physicians featured on the Atlanta Magazine cover.
“Congratulations to all of these physicians on this well-deserved recognition,” said Bob Wilson, President and CEO of DeKalb Medical. “DeKalb Medical continues to attract many of the best physicians in Atlanta. They are invaluable partners in our commitment to earn our communities trust and deliver high-quality patient care.”
