Eric Roberts, physician’s assistant-certified, has joined the medical team at the Clover Fork Clinic, located in Evarts.


Graduating from Leslie County High School, Roberts received his Bachelor of Science Degree at Alice Lloyd College. After graduation, he began school at the University of Kentucky School of Medical Science where he completed the Physician’s Assistant Program.


Physician’s assistants are concerned with preventing and treating human illness and injury by providing a broad range of health care services under the direction of a physician or surgeon.


“I grew up in this area and I’m proud of my heritage,” said Roberts. “I’m familiar with the customs of the people who live here.”


Eric is married to Bethany Leann (Whitehead) Roberts. His parents are Geoffrey and Christina Roberts. He is a member of the Mozelle Church of God where his parents are co-pastors. His hobbies include fishing, hunting, playing music and camping.


“I’m looking forward to a career in rural medicine at the Clover Fork Clinic,” said Roberts. “I’m now taking new patients and anyone wishing to make an appointment may call 837-2108 or 573-1499.”
