Family Physician Joins Freeman Neosho Physician Group

August 07, 2017

Physician returns home to improve the health of families.

Freeman Health System announces the addition of Dr. Mallorie Rhymer at Freeman Neosho Physician Group. Dr. Rhymer grew up in Joplin and specializes in family medicine.

“Working in a rural area is appealing,” said Dr. Rhymer. “Neosho offers a good sense of community and I look forward to getting involved in the community.”

After earning her medical degree at Saint Louis University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo., Dr. Rhymer completed her residency at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis, Mo. She is board-certified with the American Board of Family Medicine.

“I treat the whole person, not just the patient,” said Dr. Rhymer. “This can be unique to family medicine since you aren’t focused on just one area of health.”
