Two hometown doctors to treat patients
Mercy Clinic has opened a new family medicine practice in Seminole, bringing Mercy’s extensive resources and compassionate care to the community for the first time.
Drs. Jenna Butner Geohagan and Roselynn Simpson Dean, both Oklahoma natives, will treat patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly, at Mercy Clinic – Seminole on Wrangler Boulevard.
“It’s so important to give people access to preventative and primary health care closer to where they live and work,” said Dr. James Dixson, vice president of post acute services for Mercy. “We are honored to serve the people of Seminole with these two wonderful local physicians who bring with them access to our integrated electronic health record and network of specialists.”
Both physicians expressed excitement to provide medical care to their home communities. Drs. Dean and Geohagan held numerous leadership positions while excelling academically throughout their training. They were both chosen to serve as chief residents at Great Plains Family Medicine and look forward to using their knowledge and skills to serve their patients.
