Azalea Orthopedics Partners with ETMC Pittsburg

April 9, 2014

Azalea Orthopedics today announced its affiliation with East Texas Medical Center (ETMC) Pittsburg. The affiliation expands Azalea Orthopedics’ reach throughout East Texas, welcoming new patients as well as providing increased convenience for existing patients.

Eight Azalea orthopedic surgeons will expand their practices to ETMC Pittsburg: Cody Anderson, MD, Carey A. Clark III, MD, Kim Foreman, MD, Jan H. Garrett, MD, James Harris, MD, Rebel Huffman, MD, Ken Kaminski, MD, and Ryan Patterson, MD.

Azalea Orthopedics’ specialists will work in conjunction with certified physician assistant Toby Cason, PA-C. Cason is an East Texas native with extensive experience in sports medicine. He has spent much of his career diagnosing and treating all types of arthritis and joint pain while working in rheumatology. Cason will serve as an entry point for new patients to access Azalea Orthopedics’ physicians.

“We are delighted to grow the Azalea experience further throughout East Texas through our affiliation with ETMC Pittsburg,” says Dr. Kim Foreman, Azalea physician. “I believe that ETMC has a strong, patient-centered philosophy that complements Azalea’s mission. I’m excited to extend quality healthcare to the Pittsburg community.”

Existing Azalea Orthopedics patients may call Azalea and arrange to see their physician at ETMC Pittsburg.
