UAMS Neighborhood Clinic Opens on Rahling Road in West Little Rock
Continuing its commitment to expand primary care and specialty services to meet the needs of its patients, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) this week opened the UAMS Neighborhood Clinic in west Little Rock on Rahling Road.
The clinic, located at 1811 Rahling Road, is open 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with extended hours until 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays for patient convenience. It offers primary care to all members of a family, from pediatric to geriatric patients. Specialty care, including cardiology, urology, neurology, gastroenterology and endocrinology, is also offered.
