Drs. Mitch and Kristin Earley
Norman Regional Health System is proud to welcome Drs. Mitch and Kristin Earley to Moore Medical Center. On August 1 the husband and wife physician team will open their new primary care clinic to patients in the Norman, Moore and south Oklahoma City area.
The doctors join Norman Regional Health System with multiple years of primary care experience. The two met during medical school in Des Moines, Iowa. After one winter, they realized Iowa wasn’t the place they wanted to call home. "Since Kristin’s family is from Florida and my family is from South Dakota, we decided Oklahoma was central to both locations, so we moved here for residency after medical school," says Mitch. That was eleven years ago.
Mitch has been in practice since 2003. Kristin joined him in practice after her residency was complete in 2005. The first of August, they bring their dynamic and family style practice to Moore. "We are excited to be here and be part of this growing community," said Kristin.
Making patients feel like part of the family is a high priority on the Earley’s list. "Patients want to be heard and they want to make sure you are listening," explains Mitch. "They want to know we have their best interest in mind while we are treating them, they have to trust you. Because Kristin and I are a married couple, working together, families understand we will take care of them and do things the right way."
Just a week before the Earley’s open the doors to their new clinic, they will have completed their first medical missionary trip in Peru. "We will be taking care of families and patients while we are in Peru, especially those with serious ailments," said Mitch. "We will be serving alongside other primary care physicians, surgeons and at least one dentist," adds Kristin. "We are certainly looking forward to the experience."
Mitch received this undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska. Kristin received her undergraduate degree from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama she also has a Masters in Public Health, Epidemiology from the University of Alabama.
Both Mitch and Kristin graduated medical school from Des Moines University as doctors of Osteopathy. They also completed their residency from Great Plains Family Medicine in Oklahoma City and are both board certified in Family Medicine.
The Earley’s new clinic is in the north office building at Moore Medical Center located at 520 South Telephone Road, Suite 110. To schedule an appointment please call (405) 912-3400.
