Caring Beyond Childhood: Town Pediatrician Expands Medical Services to All Ages
Erica Fish, Ave Maria Development
From the miniature playtime lobby, affordable pricing plans and flexible appointment times, Dr. Emily Walkey of Little Flower Pediatrics in Ave Maria, Florida has made it her mission to make her practice a place of convenience and quality for her patients, no matter the age or situation.
Recognizing the need for accessible medical attention for all ages, her practice has established a transit urgent care service, with the mission to extend care beyond the scope of childcare. The mobile medical unit arrives at the doorstep of town residents’ homes, eliminating the need for trips to the doctor’s office or walk-in clinic. Whether it’s a minor injury, immunization, physical evaluation, sudden illness or a routine check-up, Rosemarie Dobryney, ARNP, Little Flower’s certified Nurse Practitioner is available to provide high-quality care for everyone situated in the town and nearby areas.
“Caring for members of the community is not a task but a privilege, and I’m thrilled to be providing care visits to adults and children from the comfort of their driveway,” said Dobryney.
For years, Dr. Walkey has been the go-to doctor for families and university students; and with her warm demeanor and personalized care plan, it’s earned her the trust of the community. Introducing this innovative approach, not only addresses the immediate healthcare needs of Ave Maria residents but also ensures that preventive care is accessible.
Little Flower Mobile Clinic is equipped with diagnostic tools, allowing nurse practitioner Dobryney to perform on-the-spot assessments and offer timely medical advice. By reaching patients where they are, the service has proven to be a game-changer, particularly for the elderly and those with limited mobility.
“The service expansion highlights our team’s visionary approach to healthcare. We’re very much excited to represent how beneficial community medicine is when convenience is exemplified,” said Dr. Walkey.
The town of Ave Maria is abuzz with gratitude for Dr. Walkey and her team’s commitment to community health, and the access to one-on-one care services has made residents feel more connected to resources situated right in their own neighborhoods. “As a full-time college student, budgeting is everything, and being able to afford a doctor appointment on your own is stressful… But Dr. Walkey’s affordable plan for university students has helped me so much and I appreciate going to a doctor like her,” said McKailey Webster, 20.
“Dedication to caring for all ages exemplifies the true spirit of what medicine represents, and that is accessibility for everyone who’s seeking quality healthcare,” said Dr. Walkey.
