Walk-in Clinic providers meet children on their level

Walk-in Clinic providers meet children on their level

Like many working parents, Amanda Quick sometimes uses the Campbell County Medical Group (CCMG) Walk-in Clinic when her children need medical care after she gets off work at 5 pm.

Her three-ear old son Jameson White was playing outside at daycare, and somehow ended up with a rock in his ear. The rock had worked its way far into the ear and had to be removed by a healthcare provider.

Physician Assistant Deb Mullinax is one of the dedicated professionals in the Walk-in Clinic, and was able to help Jameson. According to Amanda, Deb took the time to come down to her son’s level, showed him what she was going to do, and asked permission before she did anything.

“She was fantastic,” said Amanda. “I’ve been to the Walk-in Clinic before, and it’s always been quick and a pleasant experience.”
