Dr. Jesse Arthur and Nurse Practitioner Kimberly Reeder recently joined Mercy Clinic Primary Care in Ada. Dr. Arthur is a native of Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, and Reeder is a native of Milburn, Oklahoma. Both are excited to use their Oklahoma roots to better serve area patients.
“I chose family medicine because of the relationships I get to form with patients,” said Dr. Arthur. “I love seeing my patients thrive and knowing that I had a part in improving their quality of life. It’s especially enjoyable to practice in Ada because this area feels like home.”
In addition to regular primary care, Dr. Arthur is passionate about working with patients through chronic conditions and drug and alcohol addiction. Reeder enjoys working with people of all ages but has a special connection to serving geriatric patients.
“I love working in geriatrics because it really does make a meaningful impact in the lives of older individuals,” said Reeder. “Providing care, support and companionship to this unique and often underserved population helps them to maintain their quality of life and dignity as they age.”
Dr. Arthur earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, and a medical degree from Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He later completed a family medicine residency at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Reeder also has strong educational ties in Oklahoma. She received associate degrees in science and applied science from Murray State College in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, and completed a bachelor’s degree in nursing and later a doctorate in nursing practice with an emphasis in family nurse practitioner from Oklahoma City University.
“I’ve always been a natural caregiver. From a young age, I found fulfillment in helping others,” said Reeder. “Medicine allows me to channel that innate desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives directly to my patients. It’s incredibly fulfilling to provide comprehensive health care to children and seniors within the same family and build long-lasting relationships.”
Dr. Arthur enjoys disc golf, woodworking and spending time with his dog. Reeder enjoys fishing, kayaking and riding horses. Both Dr. Arthur and Reeder are currently accepting new patients. Schedule online or learn more here.
