With recruitment support from William Newton Hospital and the William Newton Healthcare Foundation, two new physicians, Dr. Angela M. Meyer, MD, and Dr. Daisy Ann Matias, MD, are now practicing at Health Professionals of Winfield.
Open since 2003, Health Professionals of Winfield is a rural health clinic owned and operated by William Newton Hospital. The practice is located at the Physicians Pavilion, 1230 E. Sixth Ave.
Dr. Meyer, board-certified in internal medicine, is a familiar face at Health Professionals of Winfield. She began seeing patients as a temporary physician in May 2017 and decided to stay with the practice on a permanent basis.
In November 2017, her active medical staff status was approved by the William Newton Hospital board of trustees.
“HPW patients took an instant liking to Dr. Meyer when she started last summer, and she quickly developed a rapport with WNH staff,” said William Newton Hospital Chief Executive Officer Ben Quinton. “It didn’t take long to realize Dr. Meyer was a good fit for the hospital.”
Hailing from rural Kensington, Kan., Dr. Meyer attended the University of Kansas School of Medicine. Her residency in internal medicine was at the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita.
Dr. Meyer most recently served as an occupational medicine physician for Promed Physician Services.
As an internal medicine physician, also known as an ‘internist,’ Dr. Meyer specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases.
“I chose the field of internal medicine because I liked the problem solving aspect,” Meyer shared. “I enjoy working with the older patient population and learning from their life experiences.”
She is currently seeing patients on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Filling the opening for a full-time physician, Dr. Matias joined Health Professionals of Winfield effective January 2. Board-certified in general family medicine, she also has been approved as active medical staff at William Newton Hospital.
Complementing Dr. Meyer’s internal medicine specialty, Dr. Matias’ experience in family care will help the practice grow its patient base, hospital officials said.
“My focus will be to take care of my patients in a holistic way,” said Matias. “I am open to care for patients of all ages – basically from cradle to grave.”
“The staff at HPW are excited to expand the range of care offered, and patients will appreciate Dr. Matias’ excellent bedside manner,” Quinton said.
Dr. Matias attended the Fatima College of Medicine. She received her post-graduate education in Baytown, Texas at San Jacinto Methodist Hospital, where she also served as Chief Resident.
After residency, Dr. Matias went on to work in hospitals and clinics in Enid, Okla. She has cared for patients at Integris Medical Group: Family Physicians of the Plains, provided primary care to veterans at the community-based Enid VA Clinic, and managed inpatients admitted to Bass Baptist Hospital.
“Dr. Matias brings more than eight years’ experience in the Midwest providing primary care,” said Quinton.
Now accepting new patients, Dr. Matias is scheduling appointments during regular office hours on Monday through Friday.
Dr. Matias and Dr. Meyer will be working alongside advanced practice registered nurse, Kimberley Adams-McDarty, who has been with the practice since 2004. Internal medicine physician Dr. Sapna Shah-Haque, MD, also continues to see patients at Health Professionals of Winfield every other Saturday.
