The Faces of Primary Care
Seneca Family Medicine, Jill Endicott, APRN, and Dr. Mallorie Rhymer
The team of Nurse Practitioner Jill Endicott and Dr. Mallorie Rhymer brings the best in primary care to the families of Seneca.
On a given day, Dr. Rhymer and Endicott can see patients from newborns to people in their 80s and all ages in between. They do well-child and well-adult exams, follow-ups for chronic conditions, treatment of acute illnesses and minor procedures.
The two healthcare professionals agree a friendly attitude and truly listening to the patients’ needs are key.
“I feel very honored when my patients tell me they are glad to have finally found a doctor who takes the time to listen,” Dr. Rhymer said. “Being able to make a positive difference in someone’s life is why I chose this field, so patient satisfaction means everything to me.”
Endicott chose to go into nursing because of the holistic approach to medicine the occupation would afford her.
“I was always interested in treating the whole person,” she said. “I not only treat the patient physically but take into account their social, psychological and mental health.”
Dr. Rhymer earned her bachelor’s degree in chemistry/biochemistry from the University of Arkansas. She attended medical school at Saint Louis University School of Medicine then completed residency in family medicine with Mercy Hospital St. Louis. She splits her time between the community clinics in Seneca, Neosho and Anderson.
Endicott earned her nursing degree from the University of Central Arkansas and her Masters of Nursing Science from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
At the end of the day, Rhymer and Endicott do what they do because they love helping people.
“Primary care is my love because you really get to know your patients and their families,” Endicott said. “We both enjoy being able to form that special bond.”
