We are for the small-town people. We are small-town healthcare.
Dr. Karen Thompson FNP-C
Dr. Karen Thompson opened Quint Family Care in December 2021. Her dream was to open the clinic in a rural community to provide easy access to excellent health care. She then chose the beautiful small town of Cave Spring, Georgia. She named the clinic, Quint Family Care, in honor of her eldest son, Quinton, who tragically passed away from suicide on June 17, 2017. During those tribulations of her life, she developed a desire to provide a safe and comfortable place for healthcare in a small town. Karen deeply cares for the citizens of Cave Spring and would love to become your family practitioner.
Her son, Quinton loved music and was the drum major at his high school. He was constantly facing internal battles, but you’d never know by the smile on his face. When you come to the office, you will see a picture of Quinton hanging on the wall alongside a music-themed exam room. His presence is with Dr. Thompson daily and gives her strength to press on. He was a significant encouragement during Karen’s educational years as he supported her desire to become a nurse practitioner. This clinic was built from the ground up, straight from her heart. It is our mission, to treat eat patient like family.
