We are now seeing pediatric patients including infants in Marshall and Longview!
We are excited to announce that Access Family Health and WPA now see children of all ages. In January we added our New Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Joan Turner Billeaud, CPNP. “Joanie” is from Marshall and has returned to her hometown to practice pediatrics. Joanie graduated from The University of Texas at Austin and then continued her education at The University of Texas at Arlington. Her father, Dr. Turner, practiced here as a Pediatrician In Marshall for over 30 years.
She is accepting new patients and it would be our pleasure to be your child's Pediatric provider!
Here is just a short list of services we offer:
- DEVELOPMENTAL AND BEHAVIORAL SCREENING - This includes screening for speech/language development, learning disabilities, and mental and behavioral health concerns.
- WELL CHILD CHECK-UPS INCLUDING IMMUNIZATIONS - We monitor growth and development, evaluate for achieving appropriate developmental milestones, and ensure that the child is up to date on immunizations.
- SICK VISITS- We offer same day appointments for when your child is ill. We make every effort to treat the child, not just the illness. It is our goal to incorporate medical interventions as well as nonpharmaceutical therapies to help alleviate illness and promote wellness.
