Hattiesburg Clinic Richton Family Medicine recently held an open house and ribbon cutting, showcasing the new family medicine practice, led by primary care physician Leah B. Rock, MD.

Many community members attended the event, including the Mayor of Richton, Bo Ruffin; Alderman, Keith Evans; City Clerk, Terri Dunn; members of Perry County Memorial Hospital administration; The Area Development Partnership; Mississippi Home Care and Forrest General Home Care staff; and Richton’s Miss Hospitality, Callie Manning. Several patients were also in attendance.

Guests enjoyed hors d-oeuvres and live music, and mingled with the team at Richton Family Medicine well into the evening. Several family members and friends of Dr. Rock showed up to support the Perry County-native, who expressed her gratitude and excitement to be back home caring for her community.

“It is a privilege to come to work every day and take care of family, friends, neighbors and residents of Perry County,” Rock said. “I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been told I look just like my mother or how someone has known me since I was knee-high. It is a pleasure to be a part of the Richton community, and I’m looking forward to many years to come.”

Rock and her team care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions. She is currently accepting new patients.

Richton Family Medicine is located at 201A Bay Ave., in Richton, Miss., and is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
