Golden Valley Medical–Clinton


Golden Valley Medical clinics enjoy a colorful past and look forward to a bright future. The dream of a young physician in 1923 has grown into a vibrant rural health group that serves four communities – Clinton, Warsaw, Windsor and now Osceola – with 40 providers, 2 physician assistants and 9 nurse practitioners.

Facilities include two fully equipped laboratories and x-ray departments, diagnostic ultrasonography and digital mammography. This makes Golden Valley Medical one of the largest group practices in rural Missouri.

Our doctors work by appointment, and their time is scheduled through the provider's office. Our staff will attempt to schedule your appointment as conveniently for you as possible. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call and cancel as soon as possible. This gives other patients the opportunity to see the doctor. If more than one person in your family needs to see the doctor, please let the scheduling staff know when you are scheduling so the proper amount of time will be allowed and the chart(s) will be ready for the doctor.

Workmen's Compensation injuries, emergency cases or acutely ill persons arriving at either clinic during regular hours without an appointment will be seen as soon as possible.

Our doctors try to follow their schedules as closely as possible. However, there will occasionally be emergencies which may delay your appointment. We will always try to keep you informed about any delays.

If this is your first visit, please arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment time and check in at the front desk. This allows us time to gather necessary information for your medical record. After your first appointment, please stop at the appropriate reception desk and register each time you come to the clinic. The receptionist will need the following information every time you register: the full name of the patient, the patient's current insurance card and/or Medicaid card, and your current mailing address. If your insurance requires a co-pay, you will be asked to pay it prior to receiving services.

Business office
The business office provides a variety of services, including assistance with personal accounts, filing personal insurance and handling other third-party payments such as Medicaid, Worker's Compensation and Veteran's Affairs. The staff will always be glad to answer any questions you may have about your account.

Diagnostic ultrasound
The trained staff in our ultrasound department prepares diagnostic studies under the direction of the physician. The results are given to the physician, who discusses them with the patient.

Our clinic laboratory has trained staff who perform the tests requested by your provider. We utilize state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and integrated information systems. Our laboratory consistently receives certificates of accreditation from the Commission on Office Laboratory Accreditation and the Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments.

Medical records
Maintaining one consolidated record ensures that all medical care given at the clinic is a matter of record for any of our physicians who may see the patient. All information in your medical record is confidential.

The imaging department takes and develops the diagnostic x-rays requested by your doctor. It is staffed by a certified x-ray technologist under the supervision of a radiologist, a physician specially trained in this field. Your x-rays are part of your medical record and are kept electronically.


If you require hospitalization for medical or surgical treatment, your clinic physician will make the arrangements for your admission. Any business matters regarding payment of the hospital account are discussed with the hospital admitting department during your admission. Please remember that the hospital and the clinic are separate businesses, and you will receive a bill from each. The clinic bill will include the medical care administered by your doctor during your hospital stay. You may receive tests that require a physician, other than your family doctor, to perform and/or to interpret.
