DR. RUSSELL JOINS STAFF AT FIFTH STREET CLINIC

Dr. David L. Russell will be joining the staff of the Brookings-Harbor Medical Center on Aug. 1.

Russell will be practicing family medicine with obstetrics at the center on 585 Fifth St.

He and his family, wife Shelly and 18-month-old son Drew, recently moved to the area from Provo, Utah where he recently completed his residency in family practice.

He is originally from Daphne, Ala. He attended college in Spring Hill, Ala. and then went to medical school at the University of Alabama, graduating in 1997.

He learned of the opening at the medical center through Oregon Health Sciences University. He said the university has a program to put doctors in rural areas.

Russell will not be accepting Oregon Health Plan patients. He said that he is an employee of the clinic and as far as he knows, the clinic is not accepting Oregon Health Plan patients right now.

He said he did sign the non-competition contract with the clinic.

Of his choice to move to Brookings, Dr. Russell said, We looked for a small town. We were torn between the coast and the mountains.

The place where Russell grew up, Daphne, Ala., is a coastal town, he said.

Russell is accepting appointments now. To make an appointment, call (541) 469-7401.
