Comprehensive primary and specialty care is right around the corner at the new Harbin Clinic Calhoun located at 855 Curtis Parkway. In order to better serve patients and their growing demand for quality healthcare, this a state-of-the-art, 15,000-square-foot building will be the home of the family medicine, nephrology and cardiology practices. The specialty suite will have three exam rooms, while the family medicine wing will span nearly 5,000 square feet with 12 exam rooms. We hope all who visit this new location enjoy our comfortable and convenient atmosphere as we aim to give Calhoun the greatest care.
Harbin Clinic Family Medicine
The family medicine practice, office of Dr. Ken Howard and Dr. Thomas Self has always been an integral part of Gordon County. We care for all individuals ages 2 and up while striving to meet the needs of our patients. Dr. Howard and Dr. Self treat and diagnose acute to chronic illness, provide health screenings and counsel patients on lifestyle changes to help prevent illnesses before they develop. Also, they have bilingual staff members ready to converse with Spanish speaking patients to guide them through their visit, answer questions and make sure they feel comfortable in our practice; we even offer monthly diabetic education classes to help patients stay informed.
Harbin Clinic Cardiology
Harbin Clinic Calhoun is also home to the only cardiologist in the city. Dr. Vincent Pearson provides full cardiac care for Calhoun and surrounding areas, using state-of-the-art tests like cardiac CT and MRI scans to help accurately diagnose patients. He also works closely with cardiovascular surgeons and provides follow-up office care for cardiac patients.
“We want to maintain a good, long-lasting relationship with our patients,” said Dr. Howard. “This new facility is just another example of how we provide quality care to the Gordon County community.”
Harbin Clinic Nephrology
Harbin Clinic Calhoun recently added Nephrology to its growing list of specialty care. Nephrology is the treatment and diagnosis of conditions affecting the kidneys. Dr. Rashid Ishaque is a highly trained nephrologist who cares for all aspects of renal disease including acute renal failure in adults, inherited and acquired kidney problems, hypertension, management of body fluid and electrolyte disorder.
