DIXON – A longtime family medicine doctor for KSB in Polo soon will be moving her practice to Dixon.

KSB announced that Risha Raven, M.D., who has been at the Polo Clinic since 2000, will see her last patients there Tuesday. She then will move her practice to the Family Health Center in KSB’s Town Square Center in Dixon.

Sameer Jain, M.D., then will begin seeing patients at the Polo clinic on June 3. Jain has been a family medicine physician at KSB’s Ashton clinic since 2010.

“Dr. Jain is a graduate of our Dixon Rural Training Track Family Medicine residency program,” KSB Chief Practice Officer Kevin Marx said in a news release, “and Dr. Raven has been one of his instructors and has watched him grow in experience and knowledge.”

Raven said Jain will be an “excellent addition.”

“I am going to miss the Polo clinic,” she said, “but I am confident the health care needs of the community will be left in good hands.”

To make an appointment with Jain in Polo, call 815-946-3453.

Raven’s patients can continue to see her in Dixon. Call 815-285-8520 for an appointment.
