We offer appointments for your convenience, but our patients are welcome to be seen on a walk in/urgent care basis for sinus infections, earaches, urinary tract infections, colds, coughs, rashes, sprains, and other simple medical problems. We strive to see all walk in/urgent care patients in a timely and efficient manner. Contact one of our locations today for more information about our services for family practice and/or urgent care.

Patient Testimonials
  • “Dr. Michael Vaughn and staff have been beyond wonderful. I feel very blessed to have him as my physician. He has helped me so much I couldn’t begin to express my immense gratitude.”

    Dr. Michael Vaughn
  • “I would like to commend Dr Willoughby and her tech for wonderful service and care. Dr Willoughby also helped me tremendously by looking for coupons and samples on rather expensive medications, for which I am grateful.

    The Lakeshore staff was very attentive. They took time to make sure my treatment was complete.

    Dr. Kay Ellen Willoughby
  • “I got the privilege to see Beverly the Nurse Practitioner… She is wonderful and I will come back to see her again! “

    “The service on all ends is great. I felt very well taken care of!”

    “MedHelp is the very professional in all areas of the clinic from the signing in process to the leaving with help needed for condition being seen for. I would recommend your medical office to others who need your service. Thank you for all you do for me and others as well.”

    Beverly Bridges
  • “I’ve been a patient of Dr. Vaughn’s for about 15 years or so – he is the best in my book!! Always courteous – always listens – and is very caring & understanding….I would recommend him to anyone and I’m proud to call him “My Doctor!!”

    Dr. Michael Vaughn
  • “We have been friends with and patients of Dr. Mike for more than 20 years. His manner is encouraging and he tells it like it is. He is obviously up-to-date on the latest medical information and treatment approaches. We like the fact that he takes time to talk with us thoroughly about our situation and doesn’t seem to be in a hurry. Makes us feel special. Members of his staff were all positive, competent and friendly. We thought that the wait time between our appointment and the time we saw Dr. Mike was improved from previous visits, but this still should be closer to the actual appointment time. Lab tests were done quickly with an appropriate wait time. We like the fact that so many of the lab tests can be done at your office rather than sent out to the lab and that our medical records are being maintained in an electronic format. We left feeling that my health situation had been carefully assessed and acted on appropriately.”

    Dr. Michael Vaughn
  • “My visit with Beverly was the best I have had! Very attentive staff and practitioner. I highly recommend this practice and will definitely return….only if needed!!!”

    Beverly Bridges
  • “Dr. Vaughn is the greatest! He is very up to date on all the latest data. I like the fact that is knowledgeable about alternative treatment and medications.”

    Dr. Michael Vaughn
  • “Everyone at your 280 office is always very kind and courteous. We have been seeing Doc. Vaughn for many, many years. I am so glad that he is now taking appointments. You can be assured that we will always come back to have our medical needs taken care of.”

    Dr. Michael Vaughn
  • “Dr. Vaughn was very attentive to my symptoms and needs. This was my third visit to this clinic and I keep coming back when Dr. Vaughn is there because of how helpful and direct he is with helping me get well quickly. He is an excellent doctor and gives great patient care.

    Also, the nurse who checked my temperature and gave me a shot was wonderful. I do not remember his name, but he was also very attentive to my needs. I have a small needle phobia, but he was extra caring and sensitive when giving me the shot.

    Great job from everyone!!!”

    Dr. Michael Vaughn
  • “Excellent service, clearly explained and helping significantly to cure my illness.”

    “Beverly was very caring and professional.”

    “I love your Lakeshore clinic! I much prefer your staff to my official “primary” doctor. Convenience and quality care are far more important to me than knowing exactly who I’ll be seeing. Thank you for providing a great health care option to the community.”

    Beverly Bridges
  • “My visit with Beverly was the best I have had! Very attentive staff and practitioner. I highly recommend this practice and will definitely return….only if needed!!!”
