KDMC to open new medical facilities in Grayson, Jackson

King’s Daughters Medical Center is opening a second family practice office in Grayson, Ky., to meet the demand for primary care in Carter County.

Family physician Robert Atkins, M.D., is moving his practice to the new Grayson Annex, located at the I-64 Interchange in Grayson.

Dr. Atkins will be following his patients from the Grayson Family Care Center in a traditional family medicine office setting.

The Grayson Annex is in the former KDMC Family Care Center building, and also is the site of longtime Grayson family physician Henry Adkins, M.D.

Patients will have the choice to continue their family care with Dr. Atkins, or use the Grayson Family Care Center on the KCU campus.

The Family Care Center offers extended hours seven days a week for family care, along with cardiology, MRI, CT scans and more.

Also, King’s Daughters Medical Center is opening a new Medical Specialties office at a new building located at 14365 State Route 93 in Jackson beginning Monday, Jan. 4.

The new building will house the medical center’s existing Medical Specialties office, which will move from 336 East Main Street.

Family physician Teresa Tenpenny, M.D., is the physician practicing at the Medical Specialties office, along with nurse practitioner Kim Tolle, ARNP. The medical specialties office’s telephone number is 740-288-7681.

The new building also will be the home of longtime Jackson-area family physician Patrick Ball, M.D. Dr. Ball’s telephone number is 740-286-3034.

Each primary care office is open Monday through Friday.

In addition to having two primary care physician offices, the new building will have a cardiologist.

Interventional cardiologist Sri Velury, M.D, will begin seeing patients at the Medical Specialties office in mid-January.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Velury, patients should call 740-288-7681.

Diagnostic services also will be available at the building, including X-rays, CT scans, MRI, and an array of cardiac testing.
