Jana Winberg, MD
Hospice and Palliative Care
I graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque, NM in 1999. I moved to Beaumont, Texas and completed residency training at Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital in June of 2002. I had the privilege of working with Dr. Joseph Finley for 2 years, in Beaumont as well as Lumberton. In October 2004, I was finally able to realize a dream of working in a small community by opening a clinic in Kountze. The small towns of Kountze and Silsbee have become my home, and I certainly feel like I am part of the community.
Jessica joined the practice in May of 2009. She has been an integral part of the office staff. She has worked many positions, and is able to fill in wherever she is needed. She currently sits at the front desk and brings a smile to everyones face. She has an easy laugh and it is rare that she does not make the customers laugh with her. She was born and raised in Kountze. Prior to being at this office, she worked at the hospital as the vampire that woke you up at 4 am for your blood. And if you have tattoos and are afraid of needles, don't bother to complain about it, because you will get no sympathy. She is married with 2 step kids and 2 dogs.
Insurance Specialist & Biller
Shirley joined the practice for the 2nd time in 2011. She has an important job in the office. She is the one who deals with the insurance companies. Because most of her job is on the computer, she has the opportunity to work from home. When you call with a billing question, we may tell you we will have Shirley call you back. She also answers telephones and sits at the front desk. She has a husband and 2 children, but no pets. She enjoys gardening, or at least eating what comes from the garden.
Lynn is our newest member in office, beginning in May 2016. She recently graduated with her diploma as a Medical Assistant. She takes patients to the rooms, gets their vitals, and puts information in the chart. She has several years of military experience, having been a helicoptor mechanic.
