Small Business Spotlight

October - Sugg Primary Care Clinic

When you walk into Sugg Primary Care Clinic in Glasgow, you will feel right at home with a warm welcome and a comfortable atmosphere. Dawn Sugg, FNP-C was a nurse for 18 years and always felt a calling to do more and help her patients find the root cause of their problems. When an opportunity presented itself for her and her family to move back to Glasgow, she decided to take a leap of faith and open her own private practice in Eastern Montana. “I really wanted to get back to a small-town feel of medicine and meet patients where they were at in their life” At Sugg Primary Care Clinic patients will experience a family-friendly approach to care. Dawn Sugg, FNP-C wants medicine to be a listening ear to her patients. She works in an integrative care model and creates a sense of community. She said that she wants her patients to feel that they can work together to find the root cause of their illness or discomfort and have that open and honest interaction so that she can heal her patients entirely both mentally and physically.

Dawn sought out the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to help with the business planning aspect of her new clinic. “I am not a business-minded person, I needed help with the business planning, and that is exactly what you offered”. Through our business planning software Liveplan, the SBDC was able to help her build a business plan that will be the roadmap for Sugg Primary Care to expand and thrive.

Sugg Primary Care Clinic saw a need in the community and surrounding area of Glasgow to alleviate the urgent care overload and to work with the whole patient instead of just the problem. This allows for patient care to be much more realistic and attainable. Health care that is simplified, integrative, and for the patient. Make sure to check out the list of care that is offered at Sugg Clinic and join us in congratulating them in their grand opening this past August!
