WATONGA – Watonga is home to a new doctor with Mercy’s addition of Dr. James Garner.
A native of Thomas, Oklahoma, a town of a little more than 1,000 people, Dr. Garner said he always has wanted to enter the field of medicine.
“I’ve always been interested in helping people,” Dr. Garner said. “I chose to practice family medicine because it allows me to care for people of all ages – from young children to adults.”
Now a family medicine specialist at Mercy Clinic Primary Care – Watonga, Dr. Garner received his medical degree from the University of Oklahoma and completed his family medicine residency at the University of Arkansas. During his nearly two decades of experience as a family medicine physician, he has cared for patients in Clinton, Fairview and Woodward.
“Medicine not only is my career, it’s also my passion,” Dr. Garner said. “I really look at every patient as a member of my family. I care about their well-being and want to do everything in my power to make them feel better.”
Dr. Garner will join Dr. Robert Spencer and physician assistants Chelsey Garrison and Valorie Graves. Located at 203 N. Weigle Ave., Mercy Clinic Primary Care – Watonga offers a wide range of primary care health services including medical evaluations, treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, flu shots and immunizations, school and occupational physicals, and treatment of factures, sprains and strains.
