Willis Express and Specialty Care is a newly opened medical facility located on FM 1097 just west of I-45. The board of directors at Huntsville Memorial Hospital recognized a growing need for medical care in the north Montgomery County area and responded by establishing the Willis clinic. The treatment center opened its doors last June and provides a wide range of medical services for the whole family in one convenient location.
The treatment center is a full service, multi-care clinic with one side of the building dedicated to family medicine and general medical care. They offer exams for sports physicals, pre-employment physicals, or just routine health physicals. There are many other services for the family, such as immunizations, minor care, acute and chronic disease care. They can also help with on-going comprehensive disease management for conditions like hypertension, diabetes, COPD, and asthma. They recently brought Dr. Karla Bruning on board to provide pediatric care for the little patients.
The other side of Willis Express and Specialty Care facility is set up for specialty medicine to provide more extensive care for those who need it. Currently, the clinic offers neurology with Dr. Nhu Bruce, along with rheumatology directed by Dr. Anil Warrier. Joining the staff soon are specialists focusing on cardiology, orthopedics, and nephrology. A small lab is also located on the premises for routine lab tests, breath alcohol testing, drug screenings, and STD testing. There are plans for the near future to add a radiography room for x-rays.
Robert L. Wren is a nurse practitioner with a background in ER medicine and military medical service. He is the lead practitioner and divides the workload with Sally Ann Shaver, also a nurse practitioner. Wren says he is excited about the ability of this new treatment center to bring “concierge medicine to Willis in a nice, comfortable, and soothing atmosphere.” He says the facility was established with the idea of bringing all the basic medical services a person could need under one roof, and doing that with a focus on the individual patient. “One thing that sets us apart is the follow up call, Wren says. “A day or two after an exam, we give the patient a call to see how they are feeling and if their prescriptions are working for them. It’s a personal touch we’re known for and proud of.”
The staff at Willis Express and Specialty Care know their patients have busy lives and do their best to accommodate hectic schedules. During the work week, the clinic has extended hours to make it easy to schedule an appointment after work or even on the weekend. They are open from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Friday and from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturdays. Whether you call to set an appointment or just walk in, the clinic prides itself on same day medical appointments.
Set conveniently between Walgreens and Kroger pharmacies, Willis Express and Specialty Care provides one easy location for all your family’s medical needs. Call today to set up an appointment or just drop in, get your flu shot, and see what they are all about.
