Dr. Lovie Stallworth has opened her own practice in downtown Middlesboro. Her offices are located on the ground level of the Pinnacle Building, 2010 Cumberland Ave. where she will practice Internal Medicine and Pediatrics.
“This is exciting because it has been five year’s in the making,” said Stallworth.
Stallworth spoke about her efforts to achieve this dream, and the many obstacles along the way. She admitted that it hasn’t been easy and it wouldn’t have ever happened without the right people helping her.
She credited God and a lot of prayer for things clicking together the way that they did.
“I know medicine and I help patients, but the business side of things is where I needed a little help,” said Stallworth. The business side is where key connections such as Sam Coleman, Director of Southeast Kentucky’s branch of Small Business Development Center, were able to offer assistance.
Coleman worked with Stallworth for the last two years in efforts to get the practice launched in downtown Middlesboro.
Stallworth’s offices officially opened on Tuesday morning. The regular hours of operation are Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There are also after-hours available Monday - Friday from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to noon.
“We have plenty of space,” said Darlene Cinnamon, the clinic’s manager. “We have ample patient rooms and we’re blessed with a full staff.”
Staff Members include Asley Fultz, Nurse Practitioner; Shannon Daniels, Phlebotomist; Kendra Baker, Gala Beck, Linda Dunn, Danielle Gilbert, and Tiffany Williams, receptionists; Melinda Tigue, LPN; Jamie Collette, RN; and Candy Daniels, Medical Assistant.
Stallworth is accepting new patients.
