Workday is HERE! 2021 Evaluation and Management changes and why? Announcements August/October Star Providers The Practice of Dr. Pirtle and Dr. Saleem UMC Internal Medicine Associates of Lubbock Dr. Floyd Pirtle is one of the best doctors on the staff of UMCP. I've been seeing him for many, many, years and have the utmost faith in his ability to diagnose and treat, and I would recommend him to anyone. He is a wonderful person and his whole staff is wonderful. I especially love Cathy, who is a wonderful nurse. Dr. Kashif Saleem is one of the doctors I have met that cares more about his patients than he cares about himself. I believe he has truly answered a higher calling to heal the sick. He is a very good listener, excellent at reviewing medical issues, gives thorough exams, and cares about his patients' health. His nurse Dominique is an excellent nurse, and always has a welcoming smile! His team is awesome! Kelsey Lipo, PA-C UMC West Wind Family Medicine Kelsey is very kind and helpful. She is thorough and a good listener. I can tell she cares about her patients, and I always have a good experience during my visits. Kelsey goes out of her way to assess everything thoroughly. She truly is fit for this job. *Patient Mackenzie Price, PA-C UMC Slaton Clinic During this time of COVID, Mackenzie has been valuable in helping care for my mother during her cancer treatments.
