Our mission is to provide the people of Rooks County and northwest Kansas the opportunity to optimize their health through a patient-centered medical home that delivers professional, compassionate, excellent service.

We all work together as a team to coordinate your care; when you see any of PRFM’s providers, that information is shared back to your primary provider through the electronic health record.

Doctors Without Delay Welcomes Macy Burke!

October 2, 2020 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer


My name is Macy Burke, I am a second year physician assistant student in the Wichita State University-Physician Assistant Program. I am working with Emily Decker for my urgent care and pediatrics rotation.

Where are you from?
Spring Hill, Kansas. A small, rural town about 45 minutes south of Kansas City.

Why did you come to Plainville?
Coming from a small community myself, I sought out opportunities that would allow me to work in that environment. The patient-provider relationships in these smaller towns can be so beneficial to the health of the patient and their outcome.

What do you hope to be when you are out of school?
I am someone that likes a little bit of everything and working with all ages, so a physician assistant in a family practice clinic is probably the best fit for me!

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
In my spare time, I enjoy going for runs, reading, visiting friends and playing with my parents’ two dogs, Junie and Mabel.

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
As a student, I am constantly working on basic clinical skills, coming up with a differential diagnosis and continuing to learn from my patients. Coming from another small town rotation, I am excited to see how another facility practices and interacts with their patients and community. I am so looking forward to being here!

Post Rock Welcomes Emily Feng!

October 2, 2020 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

My name is Emily Feng, I am a fourth year medical student at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City. I am working with Dr. Brull, Dr. Maciaszek and Dr. Beth Oller for my family medicine rotation.

Where are you from?
St. Louis, I moved to Kansas City in the middle of high school.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I was connected to Dr. Beth Oller though the family medicine mentorship program, and I wanted to come to Plainville to work with her!

What do you hope to be when you are out of school?
Either a family medicine doctor or an ob/gyn. I would love to be a trusted part of my patients’ lives.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
I bake (recently got into making sourdough bread!). I also started learning some crafts, like quilting, calligraphy and book binding.

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
I am curious about what it means to be a rural physician, in terms of practice isolation, living in a community where everyone kind of knows how you are and what the scope of practice is.

Post Rock Welcomes Tate Gilchrist!

September 11, 2020 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

My name is Tate Gilchrist, I am a fourth year medical student from the University of Kansas, School of Medicine in Kansas City. I am working with Dr. Brull, Dr. Maciaszek and Dr. Beth Oller for my family medicine rotation.

Where are you from?
I grew up in Leawood, Kansas, but my grandparents have lived in Hays my whole life so I have spent a fair amount of time in Hays throughout my lifetime.

Why did you come to Plainville?
During our 4th year of medical school, we get the opportunity to do a rural rotation. I started out by looking for sites near Hays so that I would be closer to my grandparents. Plainville piqued my interest because of clinic and hospital-based learning opportunities.

What do you hope to be when you are out of school?
I am hoping to be an Anesthesiologist after finishing residency. I like anesthesia because it involves an in-depth knowledge of heart and lung physiology as well as how certain medications interact with the body. You must be constantly thinking and alert because things can change so quickly. I like the acuity of the specialty and the diversity of patients you get to work with. In one day you could be doing anesthesia for a colonoscopy, then on the cardiology floor doing an echocardiogram and then to the obstetrics department to place an epidural for a laboring patient. Every day is different, and you never know what can happen.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
Outside of school and the hospital, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends. I enjoy indoor rock climbing, cycling and knitting (my grandma taught me).

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
I hope to gain hands-on experience and learn as much as I can about what it is like to be a doctor in rural Kansas. I hope to get a refresher on my primary care skills since it has been awhile since I was in the clinic.
