Dr. Pontious' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Pontious "I am a native Oklahoman, born in Ada and grew up in Ponca City and Enid. I am a graduate of Enid High, Oklahoma Baptist University and the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. I am married to Myrna Kirk Pontious M.D. and we have three grown children. I am the editor of the Journal of the Oklahoma State Medical Association, professor emeritus from the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine at OU. In addition to my current clinical practice, I currently serve as the Chief Medical Officer for St. Mary's Regional Medical Center and St. Mary's Physician Associates."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pontious "Quality primary care is based on an approach to medical care that is evidence based and scientific in its foundation.  I see my responsibility as providing the best primary care possible.  This will require that I listen to the patient's complaint or concern and use my skills to evaluate and assist with a plan of care.

The team that I work with is also motivated by this same philosophy.

It is not that we can always provide the care that you need, we use a set of consultants that we trust to assist us in providing your care.

If there are areas that we need to improve our approach, we are open to your concerns and ideas.

Thank you for entrusting your medical care to our practice."
