Tyler, TX – Patients in south Tyler and the Whitehouse/Troup area will have improved access to the award-winning Family Care practice of CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic with the addition of Andrew O’Kelley, DO to the team at the CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances HealthPark - Herrington-Ornelas (3593 Grande Blvd, Tyler, 75707).
“CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic, Dr. O’Kelley and the entire Herrington-Ornelas team are dedicated to providing excellent, compassionate care to the people of this area,” said Kelly Weisinger, Administrative Director of Operations, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic. “At CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic, we are dedicated to quality, compassionate care for the entire family. We offer you a medical home and work in partnership with you to maintain your health with preventive care and treatment of illnesses and injuries. When serious health problems strike, your primary care provider guides you to the appropriate specialty care.”
Dr. O’Kelley joins CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic after performing his Family Medicine residency at the University of Arkansas for Medical Science in Texarkana. He earned his undergraduate degree from East Texas Baptist University in Marshall before completing his medical degree at William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Before becoming a physician, Dr. O’Kelley served his community as a high school biology teacher in Rusk and in ministerial leadership at several churches in the East Texas area.
This is a homecoming of sorts for Dr. O’Kelley, who is originally from Northeast Texas and lived in Tyler with his family before pursuing his medical degree. Dr. O’Kelley has a real passion for working with children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
He is a member of the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Sports Medicine, the Christian Medical and Dental Association and the American College of Osteopathic Emergency Physicians.
“I believe it is important for everyone to establish a close, working relationship with their primary care provider,” said Dr. O’Kelley. “When patient and provider work together and communicate well, the results improve dramatically for the patients – they live healthier lives, and we are able to manage and even prevent many chronic or long-term conditions.”
