Connections

Hattiesburg Clinic Connections serves as a regional resource center providing medical, educational, speech/language, and Dyslexia evaluation services for children and teenagers. We are dedicated to the goal of helping families function in such a way that each individual member can reach his or her fullest potential. Our providers are skilled in medical evaluation and management of ADHD and related concerns. Each provider strives to meet the needs of each patient by helping him/her achieve goals resulting in a better life.

Our providers at Connections work directly with their patients to determine a plan to create a positive change. These changes develop through a trusting relationship that is built between the patient and the provider. The specialists at Connections work to improve well being, alleviate stress, life adjustment problems and help to resolve personal or family crises.  In addition, these professionals are trained to understand the biological, psychological and social components of illness. They can evaluate and treat psychological and interpersonal problems.

Our patients often face problems they cannot overcome alone. In these situations, seeking professional help can improve a person’s quality of life. At Connections, each provider is dedicated to the goal of helping families function in such a way that each individual member can reach his or her fullest potential by confidently and joyfully becoming all that God intends for them to be.
