Collingsworth Family Medicine Welcomes New Physician Assistant

Wellington, Texas (September 16, 2020) – Collingsworth Family Medicine is pleased to introduce Preston Barlow, a new Physician Assistant to our clinic.  Preston comes to Wellington from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo, Utah where he completed a Masters of Physician Assistant Studies.  Preston is a National Registered Paramedic and also has a Bachelor of Science in Fire and Emergency Management.

“Preston will be a welcome addition to our team,” says Candy Powell, administrator at Collingsworth General Hospital.  “He will expand our clinic’s ability to see more patients and enhance the health services to Wellington and the surrounding areas.”

Preston is well-known to the surrounding communities within the Fire and EMS services and has served in public services for over 20 years as a firefighter, paramedic, and in law enforcement.  He currently lives in Wellington with his wife and two children.  With his family, he enjoys exploring dirt roads and seeing new places including a goal to visit all 50 states by his ten-year wedding anniversary.  Preston’s other hobbies include fishing and working in his yard.  He also hopes to take up archery hunting soon.    

“I was introduced to the area while flying with Apollo Medflight,” Preston says, “but the feeling of community and the friendly people in Wellington are what really stole my heart.  I knew this is where I wanted to live and raise my kids.  I am really blessed to be offered a position with Collingsworth General so that I could come back and be a part of this amazing community.”
