Cortes, Rubin lead medical center care

Much Cortes, Rubin places a strong emphasis on preventative health. She encourages her patients to get regular physicals and colonoscopies in order to catch possible problems before they can develop into something worse.

“You have to make sure that everything is getting taken care of,” Rubin said.

In her free time, Rubin enjoys fishing and playing golf, though she claimed that she isn’t very good at either one. Last year, she and her husband welcomed the birth of their first child, a son.

Center manager Katrina Saunders said she was pleased to have Cortes on board and praised him for his interest in his patients. She said that she enjoyed watching Cortes and Rubin work so well with one another.

“I see them collaborating and sharing knowledge,” said Saunders. “Their approaches may seem different, but their desire for patient health is the same. I’m probably being spoiled by their dedication to what they do.”

The Wewahitchka Medical center is a Federally Qualified Health Care Center that has operated for 35 years. They accept Medicaid, Medicare and have a sliding fee scale for patients without insurance.

The Wewahitchka Medical Center offers same day appointments, overnight lab work and is currently seeking a licensed clinical social worker in order to offer mental health services to the community.
