Doreen Kamoga, MD, (pictured) was recently welcomed as an Internal Medicine provider at the WRMC Internal Medicine Clinic located inside the Diagnostic Clinic at WRMC.  Dr. Kamoga will work alongside Dr. Jyothi Prabha. She is currently scheduling patients and will start working in the clinic on September 1.

As an Internal Medicine Physician, Dr. Kamoga will be applying scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from healthy individuals to those with complex illnesses.

Dr. Kamoga obtained a Master of Science in Public Health from the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.  She received her Doctor of Medicine from the Mbarara University of Science and Technology in Mbarara, Uganda. She completed her residency through the Internal Medicine Residency Program at White River Medical Center (WRMC) in Batesville.

In addition to her practice at the WRMC Internal Medicine Clinic, she will provide preceptorship for Internal Medicine Residents currently training at WRMC. Her duties will include supervision for residents in training by ensuring that they accurately execute an initial and ongoing assessment of the patient’s medical, physical, and psychological status.

Dr. Kamoga was raised in Uganda, a country with high infectious/preventable diseases.  From a young age, she was eager to help ill people feel well.  While growing up, she learned the importance of integrating disease prevention efforts to the community.  Prior to her residency training, she spent time teaching Epidemiology, Population Health, and Environmental Health at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas.  It is these combined experiences that provide her with the knowledge she needs as a physician and preceptor.

For the past three years, Dr. Kamoga has served as a member of the Community Health Committee of WRHS and the Health and Public Policy Committee of the Arkansas American College of Physicians chapter.

Dr. Kamoga is married to her college sweetheart, Dr. Roy Kamoga, who is also a physician at WRMC.  They have two daughters: Alicia, age 8, and Emma, age 3.

“While I was an Internal Medicine Resident in Batesville, my family and I were able to get to know our community well,” said Dr. Kamoga.  “I am so blessed to have a supportive community for my family to grow in and I am eager to serve the residents of Batesville and the surrounding areas.”

The WRMC Internal Medicine Clinic is located at 3443 Harrison Street in Batesville.  The clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For more information or to make an appointment, call (870) 262-1510.
