“The charm of Rangeley, Maine draws one in on first sight,” Yokley said. “I quickly fell in love with the area. The only things better than the scenery are the people I have had the pleasure of meeting thus far. I look forward to working with and meeting many more of the citizens of Rangeley and surrounding areas. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I hold true to this saying. Keeping the people in Rangeley and surrounding areas healthy and well is my priority.”
In Rangeley, Crystal will work alongside Diane Zavotsky, MD and Angela Kristoff, LCSW, who offers behavioral health services. 1,400 residents of Dallas and Lincoln Plantations, Madrid, Magalloway, Rangeley, Sandy River and adjacent locations receive care from the health center each year.
