Dr. Gibbs, a family medicine physician at Longstreet Clinic and population health leader in her practice and the community, recently shared a heartwarming story about her long-time patient Gerry Brown.
During an annual physical, Dr. Gibbs noticed Gerry was a little late getting her annual mammogram and had a family history of breast cancer – Gerry lost three sisters to the disease. Dr. Gibbs ordered Gerry’s mammogram, which identified a suspicious mass that was later diagnosed as breast cancer.
“Our increased focus on population health and keeping patients healthy might have saved Gerry’s life.”
Check out Gerry’s story in this short video.
