Office BIO

The Walkersville Family Medical Center located at 19 W. Frederick Street in Old Town Walkersville (next to the Town Hall) was established in 1986 by Dr. Richard Gough. Our location has been used as a medical office since the late 1930s, when Dr. Easterday moved his office to the first floor of this site, while living upstairs. Patients would ring the bell and Mrs. Easterday would greet them before getting her husband. Next Dr. James Stoner faithfully served the Walkersville area for 42 years (from 1946 until 1988) until the office was purchased by Dr. Gough in 1988. The office has undergone three major renovations (1992, 1995, & 2023), with the desired outcome of creating a contemporary medical center while maintaining a traditional home-like atmosphere. Dr. Gough joined Frederick Primary Care Associates in August of 2005. He was later joined by Lauren Heckhaus, PA in 2016 and Rachel Myers, PA in 2019. Most recently Kezia Ellison, MD joined the staff in 2022.

The Walkersville office employs a professional medical support staff managed by its Office Manager, Bella Amici.
