Antoinette Justice, D.O. Medical School: Pikeville College School of Osteopathic Medicine
"During my 3rd and 4th years of rotations, PMC was my hubsite. I felt my training was very thorough. My preceptors were very helpful and liked to teach, which I felt greatly impacted my training. The faculty and staff were always friendly and helpful. They made me feel very welcome and comfortable."
April Ratliff, D.O. Medical School: Pikeville College School of Osteopathic Medicine
"I knew I wanted to do Family Practice and in a hospital where everyone was treated with respect and as an individual. PMC matched that description for me, especially with the teamwork I noticed in my 3rd and 4th years as a medical student. PMC continues to exceed my expectations and I know I made the right choice."

“I am a native of eastern Kentucky and it was important for me to return to my community with the knowledge and skills the Lord has blessed me with, to help promote quality health care in the mountains I call home.”
Jennifer Kingery, D.O. Year: Graduate 2010 Medical School: Pikeville College School of Osteopathic Medicine
“I chose PMC’s Residency Program for several reasons. The main reason is for my love of OMT and the FP/NMM program that is offered. I also spent time rotating at PMC as a student and was impressed with the level of education being taught by all the attending physicians. An extra bonus is that it is close to my hometown and family
in southwest Virginia.”
