Gateway Family Health Clinic Welcomes St. Luke's Specialists
Gateway Family Health Clinic, Ltd with clinics in Hinckley, Moose Lake and Sandstone welcome St. Luke’s specialists to the community. The four specialists are:
- Dr. James MacNutt, St. Luke’s neurosurgeon
- Dr. Veronica Mesquida, St. Luke’s rheumatologist
- Dr. Scott Mikesell, St. Luke’s interventional cardiologist
- Dr. James Mohn, St. Luke’s interventional cardiologist
All specialists will offer initial and follow-up consultations as well as a variety of medical services to patients. This will be the first time that Gateway Family Health Clinic in Hinckley is offering specialized cardiology and rheumatology services to patients. “We have a need for cardiology and rheumatology services in our community and among our patient population,” said Eric Nielsen, administrator of Gateway Family Health Clinic. “We are pleased to collaborate with St. Luke’s and expand our specialty care for patients.”
There are many patient benefits of having specialists travelling to a local clinic. “There is less travel time for patients, the ability for patients to stay in their own community to receive care, and often times being able to see a specialist sooner,” explained Sandra Barkley, St. Luke’s vice president of clinics. “The collaboration between St. Luke’s and Gateway Family Health Clinic will enhance patient care.”
Interventional cardiologists Dr. Scott Mikesell and Dr. James Mohn will see patients the second Friday of each month in Hinckley. Rheumatologist Dr. Veronica Mesquida will see patients the first Tuesday of each month in Hinckley. Neurosurgeon Dr. James MacNutt will see patients once a month at Gateway Family Health Clinic in Moose Lake and Sandstone.
Patients should talk with their primary care physician about a referral.
