At Fellowship Senior Living, we strive to keep all residents healthy and provide them with the care they require. We’ve taken this to a new level with the Fellowship Medical Group, a team of medical experts accepting patients and providing preventive health and wellness care to Fellowship residents and residents in the greater community.

Benefits of the Fellowship Medical Group

The Fellowship Medical Group has merged with Dr. Arthur Sheppell’s medical practice in Denville to provide a single, specialized geriatrics program to residents of Fellowship Village and residents of communities within Morris and Somerset County. As Medical Director of Fellowship Medical Group, Dr. Sheppell is leading a team to provide high quality care to older adults and is actively seeing patients at his Denville office.

“As geriatricians, we are trained to recognize when issues are a normal part of the aging process rather than being caused by disease or medication side effects,” Dr. Sheppell explained. “We specialize in geriatric syndromes. This specialization puts Fellowship Village in the forefront of Geriatric Care. I look forward to being a key leader of the Fellowship Medical Group while providing excellence in the care of our residents and the community.”

As a patient of the Fellowship Medical Group, you can stay up to date on physical exams, routine lab tests and consultations with specialists. Fellowship Medical Group is designed to help combat some of the common challenges in healthcare that our residents face.

When you seek care from one of our specialists, it should be a simple process that results in you receiving the care you need, exactly when you need it. Our team of specialists include:

  • Geriatricians
  • Cardiologists
  • Physiatrists
  • Dentists
  • Podiatrists
  • Dermatologist
  • Registered dietitians
  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychologists
  • Wound care physicians

3 Common Healthcare Frustrations

The entire health care process can feel confusing and downright frustrating at times. This is what the Fellowship Medical Group strives to avoid by alleviating the following barriers of health care:

1. Long Wait Times to See a Doctor

Have you ever tried to schedule an appointment with a specialist, only to find that it’ll take you months to see them? Fellowship Medial Group gives you a chance to see actual experienced specialists when you need them the most, without extended wait times.

2. Lack of Doctor-Patient Rapport and Trust

When you make appointments through a larger healthcare organization, you may not always be able to see the same doctor due scheduling issues. Not having a consistent doctor can weaken the confidence and peace of mind you have in your healthcare. Fellowship Medical Group has a professional staff of physicians, nurse practitioners and on-site specialists available to address your needs and build the rapport and trust you want from a healthcare provider. Best of all, you’ll be able to stay with that same provider for each appointment you make.

3. Seeing the Incorrect Specialist

Sometimes when you schedule an appointment with a larger healthcare organization, you end up seeing a physician’s assistant instead of a doctor or specialist. This can result in needing to schedule future appointments, prolonging whatever health concern you have. With Fellowship Medical Group’s staff of professionals, you will always see the specialist most appropriate to address your health issues.
