Pikeville Medical Center’s (PMC) Specialty Clinic at Whitesburg began seeing patients at its new location in January. The clinic, which moved from 226 Medical Plaza Lane to 255 Main Street, continues to offer patients quality cardiology/electrophysiology and hematology/ oncology care with the added convenience of free valet services and larger waiting and clinical areas.
Patients in Letcher County and the surrounding area can receive care close to home from Cardiologists Dr. Jose Velazquez and Dr. Denzil Harris, Cardiologist/ Electrophysiologist Dr. Michael Antimisiaris, and Hematologist/Oncologist Dr. Lilian Thomas.
“Patients come first at Pikeville Medical Center,” said PMC President/CEO Walter E. May. “One way we can make life easier for patients in the Letcher County area is by reducing the need for them to travel to our main campus for treatment.”
PMC Vice President of Physician Network Peggy Justice stated that the clinic, staffed by Letcher County residents, is operating smoothly.
“We are treating a lot of patients,” Justice said, “and are receiving positive feedback about our new location. It’s also nice when you can bring business back to Main Street.”
PMC’s Specialty Clinic at Whitesburg is located beside Whitesburg United Methodist Church and across from the former Dawahare’s building. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8am – 4:30pm. For more information or to make an appointment, call 606-633-7355.
