Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center welcomed three of its newest healthcare providers with a reception on Wednesday, October 30.
Several TLRMC employees and community members attended the reception to welcome Heidi Justice, APRN, Clay Vincent, APRN, and Dr. Sandhya Pahuja, who practices Ophthalmology, and the skills they bring to the hospital’s medical staff.
Justice, a registered Nurse Practitioner and Grayson County native, said she has been working with TLRMC since February of this year.
Previously, Justice worked in Louisville for twenty years and is excited to have the opportunity to work in her hometown, she said.
“I’ve worked in every facet of internal medicine, from rehab to sports medicine,” she said. “I think I have a lot to offer the community.”
Justice said she currently divides her time between the office of Dr. Jennifer Camas, where she practices internal medicine in the TLRMC Pediatric Clinic, and Twin Lakes Quick Care.
Vincent, a recently registered Nurse Practitioner and lifelong resident of Grayson County, will officially open his Family Medical Practice in the Kelley Medical Building of TLRMC on Monday, November 4.
For the last 18 years, Vincent said he has worked as a flight nurse for a medical helicopter service based out of Elizabethtown.
Vincent said he also previously worked at TLRMC and in Louisville.
Vincent’s new practice will provide preventative medicine to patients of all ages and is currently taking appointments, he said.
To schedule an appointment with Vincent, call 270-230-0321.
Pahuja, originally from India, joined the medical staff of TLRMC to practice Ophthalmology in the Kelley Medical Building.
Pahuja said she will be able to offer all kinds of eye exams; prescribe glasses; diagnose and treat various eye conditions; and, starting in December, perform cataract surgery.
“We have everything they need for cataract surgery,” she said.
For services she cannot provide, Pahuja said she has colleagues in Louisville and Elizabethtown whom she can recommend to patients.
Pahuja said she is glad to be able to offer the aforementioned services to local residents and, hopefully, save them travel.
Prior to her moving to Leitchfield, Pahuja said she and her husband, Dr. Anil Arora, who also works for TLRMC in the Ear, Nose, and Throat department, lived and worked in Chicago for three years.
Since that time, Pahuja said Leitchfield “has become our second home.”
Pahuja officially started taking appointments and seeing patients on Wednesday, Oct. 30 and may be reached by phone at 270-230-0321.
