About Us:

MAHEC's Newbridge office opened in October 2013. Our small office offers patients an intimate and relaxed environment and a chance to be well connected with our staff.

From left to right, pictured above are: Dr. Ginger Poulton, Dr. Lisa Reed and Dr. Heidi Knoll.  All providers have admitting privileges at Mission Hospital.  All MAHEC patients have the benefit of being followed by MAHEC practitioners when admitted to the hospital. This allows better continuity of care and participation by their providers in a patient’s care should the patient require hospitalization.

Drs. Poulton, Reed and Knoll share a special interest in pediatrics, women’s healthcare and prenatal care. They are all fluent in Spanish and enjoy working with Latino patients.  We also have a clinical pharmacist, Irene Park, who is an important part of our healthcare team. The providers have a close relationship in ensuring excellent care for patients.

Services for patients include:

  • Laboratory draws
  • Immunizations
  • Skin procedures: mole removal, biopsy, wart treatments, incision and drainage
  • Musculoskeletal injections
  • Same day sick visits
  • Chronic disease management (diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.)
  • Well child checks
  • Prenatal care

Established patients at the Newbridge office have the full benefit of MAHEC’s spectrum of services for patients.  We have 24/7 access to a physician on call. Patients may go to the MAHEC Biltmore campus for evening appointments (until 7pm) Monday- Thursday and on Saturday mornings from 8am until noon.  X-ray, DEXA (bone density) and retinal imaging scans are all available at the MAHEC Biltmore Campus. All MAHEC offices are on the same Electronic Medical Record, facilitating communication among providers and allowing providers to access your medical record at all our offices. Behavioral health services are also available through MAHEC at the Biltmore Campus location.
