Patients in Ardmore now have access to three board-certified doctors who specialize in general surgery with the addition of Dr. Valerie Jolly, a new physician at Mercy Clinic Surgery – Ardmore.
A native of nearby Davis, Oklahoma, Dr. Jolly has spent the last seven years as a surgeon in Texas, Enid and Tulsa.
“I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to provide care for this community,” said Dr. Jolly. “Southern Oklahoma is and has always remained what I consider home.”
Dr. Jolly joins Dr. Frederick Dorroh and Dr. Amber Wooten in providing Ardmore residents general surgical services and a number of specialized treatments including:
• Minimally invasive surgery for gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD.
• Lymph node biopsy for breast cancer
• Thyroid, adrenal and endocrine surgery
• Port placement for chemotherapy, medications and transfusions
• Peritoneal dialysis catheter placement
The clinic also provides treatment for colon and skin cancer. All services include comprehensive pre-and post-operative care for faster healing and recovery.
“I aim to provide patients with the same care I would give to members of my family,” said Dr. Jolly. “Surgery can be a source of anxiety, so I always want to make sure my patients feel comfortable and well-prepared. I want each of them to walk away knowing that they were well cared for.”
