Drs. Abigail and Keir Neighmond join Scotia-Glenville practice
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y., September 1, 2020—Drs. Abigail and Keir Neighmond have joined Saratoga Hospital Medical Group Primary Care – Scotia Glenville. Each has nearly two decades of experience caring for patients of all ages.
The couple comes to Saratoga Hospital from Freeman Health System in Joplin, Missouri. The move is a homecoming of sorts for Keir Neighmond, who was raised in the Capital Region and has family here.
“Saratoga Hospital recognizes that primary care is of primary importance, so we constantly strive to increase access to these vital services,” said Dr. Richard Falivena, vice president and chief medical and physician integration officer at Saratoga Hospital. “In Drs. Abigail and Keir Neighmond, our community gains two physicians who share Saratoga Hospital’s commitment to patient-centered care--and who already have a strong connection to the region. They are a wonderful addition to our primary care team.”
Both Neighmonds earned their medical degrees from the Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Abigail Neighmond completed an internship and residency at Des Peres Hospital, now St. Luke’s Des Peres Hospital, in St. Louis. She is board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians.
Keir Neighmond completed an internship and residency at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, now Mercy Hospital St. Louis. He is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.
