Looking for a New Health Care Provider?

Go for the ‘Premier’ Experience

If you’re looking for a primary care facility that can take care of your whole family, look no further than Premier Healthcare in Moore.

The 18-month-old practice is co-owned and operated by Dr. Amber Redding-Slootheer and her husband, Roy M. Slootheer. Both are board-certified family nurse practitioners with extensive professional experience and credentials (see below), that leave them uniquely qualified to provide this type of personalized care. Together, the two treat urgent care and sick patient visits, plus provide wellness exams, sports physicals and other care. Most of the patients they see are adults, but they also treat children for sick visits and older kids for primary care.

“We have what I believe is a unique approach to health care that focuses on the prevention of disease and health promotion, with the goal of helping our patients live long, healthy lives,” Amber said.

“Both Roy and I are very focused on delivering individualized care,” she added. “We take our time seeing new patients and block out enough time to thoroughly discuss their health concerns and answer questions. We are always accessible.”

In addition to handling sick visits, minor injuries and general wellness exams, Premier Healthcare’s team offer a very wide variety of screening, diagnosis and treatment options. These options fall into the broad categories of allergies, Botox, cholesterol, COVID, diabetes, flu, IV hydration therapy, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), smoking cessation, sports physicals, strep, thyroid disease, urinary tract infections, vaccinations, vitamin therapy and weight loss.

Another focus of the clinic is care directed specifically toward men and women.  

“I decided to begin offering hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for my female patients in order to enhance their overall health, sexual health and increase energy levels—especially for those approaching menopause and post-menopause,” Amber said. “A lot of women struggle in this area of their health and let it go untreated because they think that feeling fatigued, having no libido and dealing with hot flashes, etc., is just something that ‘comes with age’ and cannot be helped. Our goal is to help women feel their best at every age.”

For men, Premier Healthcare also offers the state-of-the-art GAINSWave, a non-invasive acoustic wave therapy for treating erectile dysfunction that is often more effective than medication.

The clinic is located at 12208 S. Western Ave., at the intersection of Western and 119th Street, across the street from Westmoore High School. A huge plus for Premier Healthcare patients is scheduling flexibility. The clinic is open from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. The goal is to accommodate people who cannot take off during regular work hours. New patients are now being accepted, and walk-in patients are welcome, although appointments are preferred.

24/7 patient portal access is another popular feature, allowing people to review their medical records, lab results and send messages to their provider at their convenience.

“We are always accessible to our patients and try to get back to them as soon as possible if they call with questions,” Amber said. “I’m surprised at how often I hear patients tell me they’re shocked that we actually called them back!”

Both Slootheers have impressive professional credentials and are board certified as Advanced Practice Registered Nurses. (Known as APRNs, this elevated category of nurse practitioner requires a master’s degree and additional specialized training.) Nurse practitioners in general assess patient needs, diagnose illness and disease, order and interpret diagnostic and laboratory tests, develop treatment plans, and prescribe medication and supplements.

After earning her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Oklahoma, Amber completed her nursing degree at Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City in 2008. She went on to work in women’s health, labor and delivery at the OU Medical Center, then spent six years as a recovery nurse for the Dean McGee Eye Surgery Center. In 2016 she graduated with honors from the Master of Nursing (family nurse practitioner) program at Graceland University in Iowa, where she and her husband met. In 2021, she completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at OU.

Roy Slootheer immigrated to the United States from the Netherlands after earning a degree in psychology. Once here, he earned a second psychology degree, worked as a paramedic specialist and firefighter for 12 years, completed a nursing degree at Ashford University in 2010, then also graduated with honors from the master’s program at Graceland University. A former emergency room and surgical nurse, he has extensive experience in urgent care, emergency/trauma care and thoracic oncology surgery. It was after losing his first wife to lung cancer that he developed a passion for helping patients lead healthy lives and prevent major disease through diet and lifestyle changes.

Roy is also a published author of fiction and non-fiction books. Together, he and Amber are parents to three children: Connor, Dane and Bella.

Premier Healthcare accepts a wide variety of insurance plans, or patients can pay a flat fee of $129 per visit. Unusually for a medical facility, there’s also a yearly membership option, with a $75 monthly fee that allows a patient unlimited access to the clinic.

“We get many patients who comment that we listen so well, we take our time with them, and are very personable,” Amber said. “Our highest compliment is when patients refer others to us. Knowing they are willing to send their family and friends to see us makes us very happy!”
