Hospital opens family practice clinic

Kingman Regional Medical Center has opened its Family Practice Resident Clinic at 1790 Sycamore Ave.

Suite 1.

Six family-practice residents have completed medical school and performed an internship in which they gained experience in different specialties such as internal medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology.

The two-year family practice residency they are doing is certified by the American Osteopathic Association.

Community residents can have their primary care needs met by one of the residents, who treat their patients under the supervision of board certified family practitioner and director of medical education Dr.

Donald Morgan.

"We are currently experiencing a shortage of primary-care physicians," Brian Turney, chief executive officer of KRMC, said.

"The clinic will serve a dual purpose.

It will provide an opportunity for newly trained physicians to refine their clinical skills under the direction of a board certified family practitioner."

"Moreover, the addition of the clinic will improve the community's access to timely primary care."

The clinic is open 8 a.m.

to 4:30 p.m.

Monday through Friday and is contracted with most insurance carriers.
