Manhattan magazine features Doubek
Debra Doubek MD, is featured in the Spring 2014 of Manhattan KS Magazine (read the article online here story starts on page 43) as part of the Flint Hills Community Clinic. Serving residents who lack health care, the physicians volunteer their time at the clinic, which provides a variety of services to those in need in the area. The magazine notes that many of the health care consumers are those who work multiple jobs, support a large family or found themselves in times of need.
“I grew up in a small community of 2,500 people called Belleville,” Doubek
told the magazine. “The people in our town take care of one another…through thick and thin. Growing up and seeing this happen, I knew that when I settled in a community, I would want to reach out and care for others who are less fortunate than myself.”
Doubek said she is fortunate to have the opportunity to receive her education,
and is glad to share her medical knowledge and expertise with others. Doubek is a founding physician of the clinic, which opened in 2005. She has practiced since 1992, and practices in the Stonecreek Family Physicians. She is medical director of the Mercy LIGHT weight loss program at Mercy Regional Health Center in Manhattan. Doubek, daughter of Dr. H.D. and Lou Doubek of Belleville, graduated from Belleville High School in 1976.
“My father was a wonderful role model, and my grade school and high school teachers set good examples,” Doubek says. “My first job out of college was at Republic County Hospital. Bonnie Elliott was the director of nursing, and hired me to be a nurse’s aide.
“All of these wonderful experiences make me the community leader I have become.”
