It’s been nearly 30 years since a family practitioner had an office in Port Wentworth.
Monday morning, Effingham Hospital and Port Wentworth officials welcomed Dr. Christopher DeLisle and his practice as part of Effingham Family Medicine.
“When you talk about family practice, we take care of groups of people,” Dr. DeLisle said. “I think it’s important to have someone in proximity. We can treat so many things.”
The space was converted into a medical office in three weeks, and the doctor’s office can perform lab work and some procedures there.
“We have a lot of equipment,” Dr. DeLisle said. “The lab is important.”
