Jordan explained Dr. Farhan Sheikh will bring new services to their medical facility. “We were blessed to have a neurologist ask to join our medical staff,” said Jordan, “This is a service we had long ago that went by the wayside. It’s been difficult to recruit for this. Dr. Sheikh has volunteered to come and is excited about bringing neurology services to our community.”

The addition is expected to provide an added convenience to CCMH patients. “Mostly neurology services are going to be consultative in nature,” said Jordan, “So, diagnosing new disease, helping monitor and control existing disease, and also the EMG nerve conduction screenings and testings. Currently, we have to send those out to area hospitals to be completed. He will be able to do that onsite for us.”

The clinic will officially open August 1st and Dr. Sheikh will see patients each Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Patients are asked to call 660-542-1695 ext. 3070 to schedule an appointment.
