A doctor’s legacy: Seavey Clinic spotlight

Dr. Paul Seavey provided all patients with the same level of care and personal attention.

Dr. Paul Seavey was committed to providing all patients with the same level of care and attention.

Emory Medicine recently highlighted the Paul W. Seavey Comprehensive Internal Medicine Clinic for helping to “fulfill a modern version of the iconic family physician—the trusted expert who spends time listening to their patients’ concerns.”

Atlanta’s Seavey Clinic is named for the late Dr. Paul Seavey, a long-time Emory internist and Department of Medicine faculty member who treated three Emory presidents as well as other prominent community members. His friendships with these Atlanta leaders led to a continued philanthropy that helps fund the clinic’s eight physicians. “Dr. Seavey epitomized the essence of the Emory physician,” said Amy Rollins Kreisler, whose grandfather O. Wayne Rollins was a Seavey patient and whose family foundation recently made a second $5 million gift to the clinic. “That is what we hope will be instilled in the doctors who are training here.”

The Seavey Clinic has received more than $35 million in donations from grateful patients in the past 28 years. That philanthropy helps recruit great medical students regardless of their financial need, recruit and retain faculty physicians, and support research.
