Sidney Health Center Hires Physician Assistant For Same-Day Clinic

Sidney - Sidney Health Center is pleased to announce the addition of Adrianne Bryant, Certified Physician Assistant (PA-C) to the medical staff. Bryant was recruited to see patients at the Same-Day Clinic Monday-Friday. She joins Joshua Deschaine, PA-C under the direction of O. Pete Council, MD.

As a certified Physician Assistant, Bryant practices general medicine, treating all ages in the same-day clinic setting. She can conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, write prescriptions and counsel patients on preventative care.

Bryant graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in environmental biology from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She went onto get a Master of Arts in anthropology from Indiana University, Bloomington, and recently completed the Master of Physician Assistant Studies at Rocky Vista University, Parker, CO.

In many cases, scheduling a same-day appointment at the clinic is a better choice than going to the emergency room. Insurance agencies often recommend visiting a same-day clinic when individuals are unable to get in to see their primary care physician or family doctor. When a clinic appointment warrants immediate care, the same-day clinic is a good choice for the following symptoms or problems:

• Colds, cough, fever

• Sore throat

• Ear infection

• Sprains

• Flu symptoms

• Minor burns

• Urinary tract infection

• Minor injuries, cuts, lacerations

Sidney Health Center's Same-Day Clinic relocated from the Medical Arts Building to the Primary Care Clinic on 14th Ave. SW almost two years ago. The clinic is open Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.- 12 p.m. (with rotating providers). To schedule an appointment, call 406-488-3963.
