Preferred Pediatrics welcomes new nurse practitioner Bailey

AMORY – Preferred Pediatrics at P & S Clinic is welcoming its newest staff member, certified family nurse practitioner Amy Bailey.
Bailey has lived in the Tupelo area since 1997. Before receiving her certification as a nurse practitioner in August, she worked as a registered nurse.
“I wanted the autonomy with my patients that being a nurse practitioner would offer. I had worked in intensive care and this gives me the opportunity to start at the beginning and educate patients to have a healthier lifestyle and avoid the disease process,” Bailey said.
Bailey said she loved being in Amory and the group at P & S Clinic Preferred Pediatrics was like one big family.
“Everyone has made me feel like I am part of this community. I look forward to having more of a presence here and taking care of the babies and young children,” Bailey said.
Bailey and her husband, Stephen, live in Saltillo. They have an 11-year-old son, Jacob.
She is currently accepting new patients at Preferred Pediatrics Clinic.
