HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Dr. Donald Blagdon is back in Arkansas.
After spending the past eight years in Maine, Dr. Blagdon has joined St. Joseph’s Mercy Clinic in Hot Springs as a family practice physician. He’s done a little bit of everything in his years as a physician.
“I’m going on 30 years in family practice. I’ve done obstetrics, pediatrics, emergency room, even house calls back in Maine,” Dr. Blagdon said. “I was always interested in Gerontology and was a nursing home director for many of those 30 years.”
This is the English Harbour East, Newfoundland, Canada native’s second tour of duty in Arkansas. He previously worked at Ouachita County Medical Center in Camden.
“I was born on the island of Newfoundland in far eastern Canada, about as far east as you can get pretty much,” Dr. Blagdon said.
Dr. Blagdon attended the Medical School at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s.
