  • Business: Wakulla Urgent Care Owner: David A. Keen, MD, MPH

    Tell us about your business: While being the Health Department Director in Wakulla County for 13 years, it was apparent that everything we did medically was done in Tallahassee – basic things like X-rays, lab draws, urgent care and after-hours care. I left for a few years and after honing my skills as an ER physician, I came back to Wakulla County to help bridge that gap in health care delivery by opening my own practice: Wakulla Urgent Care and Diagnostic Center. Initially we were located in Panacea but moved four years ago to Crawfordville to be more effective to more people.
