Joseph Arulandu, M.D., Internal Medicine physician, and member of La Porte Physician Network has been elected as a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (ACP), the prestigious society for internists. This distinction recognizes achievements in internal medicine, the specialty of adult medical care.
Dr. Arulandu was elected upon the recommendation of peers and the review of the American College of Physician’s Credentials Subcommittee. He may now add the credentials, “FACP” after his name in recognition of this honor.
La Porte Hospital Chief Executive Officer Ashley Dickinson shared, “We are privileged to have outstanding internal medicine physicians like Dr. Arulandu serving patients in the area. I frequently hear compliments about the caliber of care he provides and his outstanding communication with patients. Becoming a Fellow in the American College of Physicians is a special achievement and affirmation of his skills as a physician.”
An outstanding physician as evident from his large practice of both Michigan City and La Porte-area residents, Dr. Arulandu is triple board certified in internal medicine, obesity medicine, clinical lipidology, and he is an ADA/NCQA diabetes expert.
Dr. Arulandu graciously credited the entire staff at his office at 7002 W. Johnson Road for helping him earn this honor saying, “It is a huge honor for doctors to get this distinction and part of qualifying is to show your office operates above and beyond a normal practice. My office does, in fact operate above and beyond typical internal medicine practices, and it is largely because of the entire support staff here in our office on Johnson Road. I am very proud to work with my colleague and staff here.”
Being a Fellow of the American College of Physicians is a distinction earned from colleagues who recognized Dr. Arulandu’s accomplishments and achievements over and above the practice of medicine. The most important considerations for ACP Fellowship are excellence and contributions made to both medicine and to the broader community.
