Sale Creek Primary Care, a family medical clinic, will open Monday, offering an extensive variety of services and serving patients of all ages.
The new office is owned by Whitney Ross, PA-C. Professional services offered will include routine medical care, wellness exams, knee injections, hip injections, and minor procedures including suturing, toe nail removal, skin tag removal, incision and drainage of abscesses.
A love for small-town practice and total patient care motivated Mrs. Ross to open the facility.
“It has always been a dream of mine to open my own office, and about six months ago I felt God was pushing me to take that next step,’’ Mrs. Ross said. “I love Sale Creek and all of its people. I am a small-town girl myself, so I can relate to my patients very well here. There isn’t a lot of medical care offered in Sale Creek, so I want to make sure my patients don’t have to travel long distances for general care that I can provide.”
A native of Crossville, Tenn., Mrs. Ross graduated from East Tennessee State University with a bachelor’s degree in biology. She earned a master’s degree in health science in physician assistant studies from South College in Knoxville. She previously worked at Pediatric Health Care in Chattanooga and has experience in pediatrics and primary care.
Other staff members are Dr. Chad Conatser, supervising physician; Donna Gunter, office manager; Whitney Padgett, certified medical assistant; and Maria Campos, medical assistant.
Sale Creek Primary Care will hold an open house on Saturday from noon until 3 p.m.
The clinic is at 14402 Dayton Pike, Suite C in Sale Creek. Hours of operation are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. For appointments, insurance information and other questions, call 498-3560. The office’s website is salecreekprimarycare.org.
