As a family medicine physician, Gibson’s areas of interest are preventative health care, geriatrics and diabetes.
“Together with the health coach, physical therapists, and the other providers in the community, I know that we can work together to improve the health of our patients and help prevent and manage chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease,” Gibson said.
Gibson joins Drs. Mark Beamer and Gregory Jones at the new clinic. Besides offering primary care services, the new facility has additional space for cardiac consults, prenatal care, lab work, ultrasounds and X-rays, all conveniently located under one roof. In addition, the clinic has a team of physical therapists, offering outpatient physical therapy services so patients can stay close to home while recovering from injuries and other health related issues.
