​Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Click here for the most recent update!

We know many of you have concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as the Delta variant continues to spread rapidly. Since Coronavirus has very limited treatment options, we encourage you to get vaccinated. Given the current case stats we also recommend you continue to wear a mask in all indoor settings, social distance as best you can and practice good hand hygiene. Unvaccinated and elderly individuals or those with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, obesity, heart or lung disease, are at the highest risk for infection that could lead to serious illness or death. With COVID-19 in our community we encourage you to avoid unnecessary trips to public places and use good hygiene practice regularly. If you suspect you have been near someone with Coronavirus and/or have symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath stay home and call us at 662-323-3162 for instructions. We have multiple appointment options available to accommodate your needs. For more information please follow the links below:

Thank you for considering us for your healthcare needs. Our philosophy of medical practice is rooted in more than 60 continuous years of service to patients in Starkville and surrounding areas.  Our medical staff is well trained and experienced in health/wellness maintenance, urgent care,  and long term care of chronic medical problems. We have experience in working up difficult to diagnose conditions.  We recommend a  long term healthcare relationship as your and your family's medical home.   We guide our patients in navigating a complicated healthcare system efficiently  with an emphasis on managing your care to avoid unnecessary and duplicated care and tests.  While this can be challenging at times, we believe the physician patient relationship is a joint one in which we assess, educate and guide you through your healthcare decisions. Come visit The Family Clinic in Starkville for your health care needs, where you can have a medical home!  

Farewell, Jennifer!

Jennifer Summers will be leaving the practice at the end of June. She was a great addition to our team at The Family Clinic and we are sad to see her go. Patients with existing appointments will be contacted to reschedule with another one of our providers. If desired you may also contact the office for a copy of your records if needed. We wish Jennifer very well in her future endeavors!
