Family practitioner joins staff at clinic
Jeff Madison, administrator, said Little River now has four family prac t itioners and four “mid-levels” serving the local medical community.
“We went out and recruited Dr. O’Neill because the demand is here for another family practitioner,” Madison said. “We are doing a lot of business and we could certainly see our staff grow some more.”
Dr. O’Neill is currently seeing patients Mondays through Wednesdays at Little River’s Main Street Clinic.
She’s a native of the Houston area and a graduate of SMU and the University of Texas Medical School at Houston.
“ I enjoy family medicine because I get to deal with every member of a family, from very young to elderly,” she said.
It’s a medical family. She is married to obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. John Sherman and the couple has two children, ages 7 and 5.
“Our family is very outdoor oriented,” she said.
Dr. Sherman practices in Rockdale two days a week.
