CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs neurologist Dr. Kara Way will begin seeing patients in Magnolia to treat conditions ranging from headaches and migraines to epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease.
The monthly visits by Way are part of a new partnership with Magnolia Regional Medical Center to meet the high demand for advanced neurology services in the region, a news release said.
"Neurological conditions affect adults of all ages, but many of our Southwest Arkansas communities don't have easy access to diagnosis and treatment," CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs President Dr. Douglas Ross said in the release. "With Dr. Way seeing patients monthly in Magnolia, we can provide that access more readily and continue to grow our healing ministry to better serve Arkansans."
Way, who grew up in the southwest Arkansas community, will provide care to patients in Magnolia with diseases of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. She will also continue to see patients at the CHI St. Vincent Neurology Clinic in Hot Springs, which specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of neurological conditions affecting adults of all ages, delivering comprehensive and individualized patient care with the goal of maintaining optimal brain and nerve function.
