Dr. Irram Sumar, a graduate of our family medicine residency program, is taking over for Dr. Hay, a retiring physician in Clinton. Dr. Sumar first came to Clinton in 2011 as a resident and completed part of her training with the Clinton Family Health Team. After graduating in 2013, she decided that Clinton was the place to start her career.
