Jonesboro, Ark.– NEA Baptist announced the opening of its new location for NEA Baptist Pediatric Clinic, and NEA Baptist Dermatology and Mohs Surgery. The two clinics are the first project for The Reserve at NEA, which is the only lifestyle medical park in the region and connects directly to the NEA Baptist medical campus.
The pediatric clinic will have two board certified pediatricians and two nurse practitioners. Dr. MaryJoanne Umeora, Dr. Camille Chan, Priscilla Fortner and Tomorrow Potter will provide pediatric care to patients 0-18 years old in the new space.
