The Compass Medical Clinic is a new entity established on January 1, 2021. It combines the efforts of four independent providers, Dr. Remington, Dr. Hoover, FNP Evers and Dr. Lucas. Our providers have been present in and around the Dallas community since 2004 with a combined 75+ years’ experience practicing medicine in the community.
We are first a small-town independent clinic adaptable to our patients’ needs. When you call our office, a staff member will address your concerns you know and who know you. You will see your own provider and medical assistant at your visits. There is always a physician on call for questions after hours. We care for our patients personally.
