JASPER, TX (KTRE) – There is always a need for more health care options in rural areas of East Texas. The community of jasper and its surrounding areas now have a new option thanks to the opening of Total Health Family Medicine.

The clinic has a unique set-up with medical services on one side of the facility and mental health services on the other side. The clinic hopes to provide care for the whole family's mind and body.

"They've lost several of the physicians in the area here recently so there's been a shortage. So we're another outlet for people to come to," said Ginger Brocato, Nurse and Office Administrator.

"Our goal is to treat the whole person, and although you can come in for just counseling services or just medical services we feel like we can serve the whole person," said Janine Awtrey, Licensed Professional Counselor.

The clinic is excited to provide the much needed mental and medical health services to the jasper community with quick wait times.
