Charleston, Ark. - Growing up in small town Arkansas, Dr. Rachel Sing often heard her high school classmates say they couldn’t wait to move away but she never felt quite the same.
“All along I thought I’d like to move back, there’s a lot to be said for small town life.”
Dr. Sing did go away for a while, first to Lyon College in Batesville to get her undergraduate degree, then to UAMS in Little Rock for medical school. In June, she completed her residency at the family medicine residency program in Fort Smith.
Now Dr. Sing has come back to her roots, settling with her husband, Brandon and their two children, three-year old Parker and three-month old Ellie not too far from her new office at Mercy Clinic Family Medicine in Charleston.
“It’s a great location for me and my family, I grew up in Booneville, my husband is from Branch and much of my dad’s family still lives in Charleston, I can’t think of any place I’d rather be.”
Dr. Sing says medicine is something she’s been interested in since she was a girl. Her dad is a veterinarian but she always knew she wanted to work with people.
“I really enjoy getting to know everybody, knowing my patients both inside and outside the office.”
As a family practice physician, Dr. Sing will see patients from newborn up. She looks forward to the variety of caring for people in different ages and stages of life. The clinic is open from 8am-5pm Monday-Friday. To make an appointment, please call 479-573-3120.
The public is invited to come meet Dr. Sing and see the new Mercy Clinic Family Medicine- Charleston located at 107 S. Logan during a lunchtime open house on Friday, September 19th from 12pm-2pm. Come join us for a tailgate party in the parking lot with hot dogs and drinks.
