Dr. Shelley Overholt, a physician with Family Practice Associates of McPherson, will be seeing patients at the clinic. Services will include preconception counseling, prenatal care visits, and postpartum checkup. Lab work and ultrasound studies also may be conducted at St. Luke Hospital under her care.
The clinic will be staffed twice monthly on Friday mornings by appointment only. When weekly visits become necessary, appointments will alternate between McPherson and Marion. Deliveries will be conducted at McPherson Hospital.
Dr. Overholt is a family physician whose practice is primarily young families including obstetrics, office gynecology, and pediatrics. She manages approximately 90 deliveries per year.
