Student doctors Marsha Lachaud and John R. Wall recently completed externships with Thomas Byrnes, D.O., at Redicare-Urgent Medical Care in Richmond Hill.
Both Lachaud and Wall are third-year osteopathic medical students at the Georgia campus of Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. They performed a clinical rotation with Dr. Byrnes and had an opportunity to hone their skills in osteopathic manipulative treatment on patients while also applying family-medicine skills.

Wall and his wife Meagan are from North Georgia. Wall is scheduled to graduate in May 2013, and his next externship is at Houston Medical Center.
