This team will provide services for:

  • Preventative care
  • Psychosocial care

Conditions Treated include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Asthma

Skin care services will also continue to be provided as Bronson Skin Care & Cosmetic Laser Center. Darla Hulse, registered nurse, and Stacy Childs, registered medical assistant, will treat people for their skin care needs.
Like all Bronson medical practices, Bronson Family Medicine uses the Epic electronic health record system. Patients benefit by accessing their health information in Bronson MyChart to view their test results, refill prescriptions, schedule appointments and send messages to their doctor. Plus, doctors can see their patients’ health information on Epic to better coordinate care and collaborate with specialists.

Anticoagulation, lab and nutrition services, currently located at Bronson Vicksburg Outpatient Center, will be moving into the Vicksburg Medical Office Building. Outpatient rehabilitation services will remain at the outpatient center at 13326 N. Boulevard St.
