Joel Weis, OD

Ringgold County Hospital has partnered with Joel Weis, O.D. from Family Vision Center to provide services through the Visiting Physician’s Clinic.

One of the best aspects of being located within the hospital is collaboration, says Dr. Weis. “I’ve had a stand-alone clinic in Mt. Ayr for six years. I’m really looking forward to partnering with the hospital and the Mt. Ayr Medical Clinic’s health care professionals. Coordinating with a patient’s primary care physician gives us the opportunity to provide the best care possible.” Dr. Weis is now seeing patients in Mt. Ayr on Thursdays each week in the Visiting Physician’s Clinic at Ringgold County Hospital. To schedule an appointment, call 641-464-2813.
