Continuing its commitment to expand primary care and specialty services to meet the needs of its patients, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) this week opened the UAMS Neighborhood Clinic in west Little Rock.
The clinic, located at 1811 Rahling Road, is open 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with extended hours until 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays for patient convenience.
The clinic offers primary care to all members of a family from pediatric to geriatric patients. Specialty care, including cardiology, urology, neurology, gastroenterology and endocrinology, is also offered.
The clinic has a full-time staff of 25, including three physicians. Services range from annual exams and preventive care to specialists who can help manage complex conditions and illnesses.
Dan Rahn, MD., UAMS chancellor, says there’s a need for primary and specialty care in neighborhoods. “While UAMS will continue to offer treatment in our midtown Family Medical Center, this new clinic allows us to offer both primary care and specialty appointments in one location that is convenient to one of the city’s fastest growing areas,” said Rahn. To make an appointment, call 501-614-2340.
