Primary care offered in Milan

The first patient to be seen at Milan Primary Care, which opened earlier this year, was Deanna DeMotte. During her checkup, the patient was written an order for a diagnostic test, the results of which brought life-changing news, according to a Dearborn County Hospital news release.

“At my office appointment, Amy Works, Milan Primary Care family nurse practitioner, wrote an order for me to have a diagnostic mammogram, which I had performed at the Dearborn County Hospital Breast Care Center,” DeMotte began. “The DCH radiologists quickly discovered a lesion in my left breast, which was determined to be malignant.”

Dr. Mark McAndrew performed a double mastectomy in April, removing 11 lymph nodes, eight of which were cancerous. In May, she began chemotherapy, then radiation treatments in Lawrenceburg.

The Milan native lived in nine states over four decades before she was widowed in 2004. In 2009, DeMotte and her daughter, Laura German, returned to Milan to care for her mother, Elda Boone, until her death at 100 last November.

Since her breast cancer diagnosis, DeMotte has met many caring health care professionals who are assisting in her journey to recovery. “I was really impressed with Amy and all the staff at Milan Primary Care,” she explained. “They are not only my health care providers, but also my friends."

Works added, “It’s always a good indicator of recovery when a patient such as Ms. DeMotte has a good outlook on life. We are very happy that we were able to play a small part in the detection of her cancer.”

Milan Primary Care is located at 124 W. Indian Trail (State Road 350). Persons may schedule an appointment by calling 812-654-7037.
