Dear Patients of Barry Pointe Family Care,
 
Our practice is committed to caring for you during this unprecedented time. As we adapt and respond to COVID-19, we are taking steps to provide an even safer environment within our practice.  We will continue to care for patients with all concerns including in-clinic procedures, referrals, and any urgent needs. Nurse triage will also still be available to answer questions.
 
In order to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 while also preserving quality care, we have implemented the following changes:

  • We have adjusted our approach to collaborative care. You may see a different physician or nurse practitioner than you were originally scheduled to see, but rest assured that you will still receive excellent care.
  • Telehealth visits (see section below) are available upon request.  Please check with your insurance carrier to see if they
    are still covering telehealth visits.  You may see one of our physicians or nurse practitioners remotely via video using your mobile device or computer.
  • We have begun screening patients at the check-in.  Patients with concerning respiratory symptoms will be asked to reschedule and guidance on home care will be provided.
  • In an effort to reduce waiting room time and crowding, we ask that all sick patients remain in your vehicle while you call us to “check-in”.  You will then be notified via your cell phone when the medical assistant is ready to bring you back for your appointment.

It is our goal to provide safe, compassionate care as we navigate this temporary new normal.  Thank you for trusting us with your health.
 
The Physicians of Barry Pointe Family Care

Rebecca Poage APRNRebecca Poage grew up in St. Joseph, Missouri and attended Central High School. She achieved her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing from Missouri Western State University. Following graduation she moved to Columbia, MO where she worked at the Women's and Children's Hospital in their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She very much enjoyed her time in Columbia, but was anxious to get back to the Kansas City area to be closer to family and friends. She continued her NICU career at St. Luke's on the Plaza before ultimately deciding she wanted to gain some outpatient experience and worked as a patient care coordinator at The University of Kansas Health System in the pediatric clinic. There, she found her passion for working in an outpatient clinic, which drove her to pursue an advanced practice degree in that setting.
 
Rebecca graduated from The University of Central Missouri with a Master of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner and is board certified. She very much enjoys how her role as a family nurse practitioner allows her to connect with patients and families of all ages and backgrounds. She aims to work with each patient to develop an individualized and evidenced-based approach to promote heath and prevent disease.
 
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband Alex and their golden retriever puppy named Ollie. Together they enjoy taking long trail walks, spending time at the local dog parks, going to local sporting events, and traveling. In her free time, she also enjoys baking, crafting, and hosting gatherings at their home.
