Our new Blue Diamond myGeneration Senior Clinic opened on May 26, 2020, and if you’ve visited there, chances are you’ve met Dr. Roy Perlot. The Blue Diamond clinic is located in an area with very few healthcare facilities, and Dr. Perlot is proud that Intermountain Health is serving the growing needs of Medicare Advantage patients in the surrounding community.
The decision to go into medicine
Dr. Perlot started his college career as a Bioengineering major, but during his first semester he felt drawn to medicine, so he changed his major to pre-med and took a new direction in life. He went on to medical school at the University of Illinois in Chicago. There he received training in many different fields, including general surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics, and dermatology. He completed his residency at University of Southern California Medical Center.
Next stop: Las Vegas!
Growing weary of LA traffic, Dr. Perlot looked around for a smaller city in which to live and practice, and decided on Las Vegas. Today Dr. Perlot says he enjoys living here because for a city its size, Las Vegas offers most of the amenities of a large city. He also admires the independent spirit of the community and residents’ ability to unite during times of crisis.
When he’s not practicing medicine, Dr. Perlot enjoys an active lifestyle, including mountain biking, weight training, gardening, and exploring many of Las Vegas’ “hole in the wall” eateries.
Meeting the challenges of a pandemic
Dr. Perlot says he sees more and more patients taking precautions like wearing masks, maintaining social distance, and hand sanitizing, which he thinks are smart ways to guard against the virus. He also sees a rise in virtual appointments and telemedicine, an area he practices in and which he believes will continue to grow in popularity. So far, this portion of his practice is running smoothly, and he sees patients becoming more familiar with their smartphones because of it.
The myGeneration advantage
