Dr. Carmelita Shah to provide care at AMC

Carmelita Shah, M.D., will be providing care at Atlantic Medical Center through the end of the year, according to Beth Spieker, Chief Clinic Administrator. Dr. Shah will be available Monday – Friday, 8 am – 5 pm, to provide general family medical care for patients of all ages.

“With the cold and flu season just around the corner we want to be sure we have adequate staff to meet the needs of our community in a timely manner,” Beth explained. “We are a little short-staffed right now, so decided to bring Dr. Shah in on a short-term basis.”

While she specialized in pediatrics early in her career, Dr. Shah has provided general family medical care for over 30 years, including 26 years with the Winthrop Medical Clinic in Winthrop, Iowa. She now works as a locum tenens physician, traveling to different locations to help out with temporary staffing needs.

“We are very pleased to find a physician with Dr. Shah’s experience and excellent references to help us care for our patients as we continue to recruit additional permanent physicians. We are confident she will be a great asset to the clinic during the next few months,” Beth noted.
To schedule an appointment with Dr. Shah, call Atlantic Medical Center at 712-243-2850.
