He received his undergraduate degrees in nursing from Davis and Elkins College and the University of Texas-Arlington.
Chris is already a familiar face around PMH. He completed 359 hours of hands-on experience in his practicum under the supervision of Dr. Alan Thorne and Donna Lidel-Burley, FNP.

He is excited about joining the RHC staff and getting to know his new patients. He will be seeing a continuum of ages consistent with family practice, including adult, geriatric and women’s health.
“I look forward to serving the community by improving healthcare and meeting the healthcare needs of those in Pocahontas County,” he said.
The RHC offers a full range of medical services including care for illness and chronic disease management, well child checks, immunizations and physical examinations, in addition to women’s and children’s health services.
