Yelverton, Sr., in Jackson, Mississippi, at the St. Dominic Medical Office Building on Lakeland Drive. Dr. Richard L. Yelverton, Jr., followed in 1995. Dr. Steven J. Patterson and Dr. Pat H. Scanlon, Jr. began their practice with us in 1999, with Dr. J. Kevin Chandler joining in 2002. After the retirement of Dr. H. Richard Johnson and Dr. Walter Jones, the clinic welcomed Dr. Richard Keith Johnson and Dr. Jonathan Adkins in 2007.
