“Our primary care team is ready to provide top-quality services, treatments and specialist referrals to match the unique needs of our adult and senior patients in the Morristown area,” said Amanda Herrell, DO, primary care provider at Morristown Family Medicine. “We offer treatment and support for a variety of medical needs, and we will work with patients to develop individualized treatment and care plans to manage conditions or symptoms.”

At the clinic, patients can find resources, care and treatment for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Acute conditions or illnesses that happened recently and require immediate care, such as a sprain, minor wound or burn, ear infection or the flu
