Physician

Being a family medicine physician is my calling. I get the enjoyment of caring for my patients over time, from birth to geriatrics. It is a very rewarding experience.

Lauren Southward, MD, Physician

Dr. Southward was born and raised in Southern Oklahoma on her family’s ranch. She attended Ringling High School and went on to complete her undergraduate degree at Oklahoma State University. She received her Doctorate of Medicine degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, where she graduated in the top quartile of her class. She completed her residency at Great Plains Family Medicine in Oklahoma City where she served as Chief Resident her final year. Upon graduation in 2003, she returned home to Ardmore, Oklahoma and opened her own private family medicine practice.

 

In 2012, she joined the staff of Cross Timbers Hospice and has since worked in both hospice and family practice serving Ardmore and the surrounding community’s. The decision to join Primary Health Partners will allow her to transition her practice to a direct primary care model which will allow her to spend more time with each patient to provide the quality, personalized care she is passionate about.

 

Her areas of clinical focus include family practice, geriatrics, hospice/end of life care, and chronic disease. She enjoys partnering with patients to educate them and help them to live a healthy lifestyle and prevent diseases. She believes that her patients can teach her more about medicine than any book ever has. She is a hands-on physician.

Dr. Southward is married to Kent, and together they are very proud of their four daughters. When she is home, she stays busy with family and enjoys cooking, traveling, outdoor sports and relaxing at the lake. She is a member of the Methodist Church in Ringling.

My DPC provider asked tons of questions about my health history. She reviewed all of my medications, completed labs on my first visit, and saved me a bunch of money on my prescriptions. Now, most of my care is done through text or the occasional call. I rarely go to the clinic!

I am glad I found this Doctor and nursing staff! They were recommended to me by a friend who had been coming to Dr. Wall for years and wouldn’t go to anyone else. Now I know why. Dr. Wall takes time with you and explains things so you can understand.
