Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) has expanded services in the region by opening a new family medicine clinic in Martin, Ky. The office is located in the Coal Building behind US Bank.

The new clinic in Martin will service patients who need urgent care, have minor cuts and abrasions, acute bronchitis, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis, reflux esophagitis, urinary tract infections and much more.

PMC has provided specialty offices in Prestonsburg and Paintsville however, this is the first office location for the Martin area.

“It is a great day for us. We are really excited about the opportunity to bring PMC into the Martin community. We are excited to provide patients in that area the same kind of quality health care we bring to other patients throughout the region,” said PMC Senior Vice President and COO Physician Practice, Melissa Thacker.

PMC Physician Assistant, Mike Williams will be seeing patients Monday through Thursday from 8am until 4:30pm and on Fridays 8am until 1pm.

Dr. Crum remarked, “Are there services out there that are unmet or underserved? The answer to that is yes. We are really making an inroad in the area as our hospital continues to grow and expand.
