Mission

Gastonia Medical Specialty Clinic is committed to providing patients with convenient access to the best care possible. We believe that in order to do that, we must provide a pleasant and comfortable setting, as well as treat each patient with the utmost dignity, respect, and kindness because each and every patient is important to us.  We strive to stay abreast of current trends in healthcare in order to provide care which is thorough and up to date and we offer a variety of services for the convenience of the patient.

History

Gastonia Medical Specialty Clinic was started in 1975 by Dr. Henry C. Thomason, Jr.  Through the years we have changed locations, as well as specialties and services.  Today we have grown to six providers, including three pulmonary physicians, one internal medicine physician, two nurse practitioners, and a support staff of dedicated and friendly individuals.
