Las Vegas, NV, July 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Physician Onsite, Inc., recently placed Maria Gaerlan, M.D., as an on-site physician at Life Care Center of Las Vegas.
In her new position, Gaerlan will work with Life Care Center of Las Vegas’ interdisciplinary team and other attending physicians in caring for each patient.
Her presence in the nursing home will enhance physician accessibility to patients and their families. She will aid in hospital transitions and pharmacy communications, and being on-site will allow her to personally respond to medical changes or emergencies in a timely manner.
Before entering this new role, Gaerlan served as the facility’s medical rehabilitation director, as well as practicing at West Charleston Pain Center in Las Vegas. She has more than 20 years of medical experience, most of which she has served in the Las Vegas community.
“I know the needs of the facility and can provide better patient care and services now that I have more time for patient care,” said Gaerlan. “Adding more quality of life to our elderly residents’ remaining years and seeing a smile when they feel a sense of accomplishment brings a smile to my face too.”
Gaerlan earned her doctor of medicine degree from the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, the Philippines. She is board certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and is a licensed physician and surgeon in Nevada, California and the Philippines.
She resides in Las Vegas with her two daughters, Dominique and Jacqueline.
