Since 1998, the Mt. Ayr Medical Clinic has enjoyed a reputation for quality care so good, patients travel from outside Ringgold County just to be seen here. If you’re searching for a doctor near me or you, you’ll want to check out all the family practice providers that offer exceptional care locally. Located within Ringgold County Hospital, The Mt. Ayr Medical Clinic offers you convenient access to other services like laboratory testing, medical imaging, specialty physicians, and more.

One of the biggest shifts in healthcare has been a focus on lifelong health and wellness rather than only treating patients when they’re sick. That’s where the Mount Ayr Medical Clinic is excelling. “We have a tremendous staff at the clinic,” says CEO Gordon Winkler. “We’ve always had excellent physicians and nurses. With the advent of physician assistants and nurse practitioners, we’ve been able to attract and keep very talented people in our small community. The Mt Ayr Medical Clinic has a tenured team who speak highly of each other, the clinic, and their patients.
