Dr. Tom Langston
I was born in Boone County Hospital (now NARMC) in 1962, graduated with honors at HHS (’80), honor societies at University of Arkansas (’83), and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (’87) in Little Rock. After starting residency in 1987 at Area Health Education Center – Fayetteville (extension of UAMS), I joined Dr. Bob Langston (dad) part time in 1988 and then full time in 1990.
I married Cindy in 1983 and we have 3 children – Nicholas, Rebekah, and Maggie; daughter-in-law, Amber; and one grandchild – Zoe (Zo-E). I like to hike, garden, travel and attend Goblin and Razorback athletic events. I have two brothers who also live in Harrison – Bill and Jim (the surgeon with whom I am regularly confused).
After practicing 28 years in Harrison fulltime in the same location, I needed to make a change to a less stressful situation with a little more margin in my schedule for grandchildren, slowing down, and travel. I had planned to retire but didn’t feel I could leave all my long-term patients in a lurch, so I decided to try a solo practice with some new technologies – trying to meet the significant needs of seniors while still being able to see patients that have acute illnesses and injuries. Managing long term chronic illnesses (associated with aging) well is the challenge of the future, and we’re going to give it our best shot.
Cindy is Dr. Tom’s nurse, shot nurse, lab tech, accountant, and wife. This is her second career. She has a bachelor of science in accounting and data processing. She was a certified public accountant for many years. For a few years she was a domestic engineer focusing on their 3 children. She finished her RN degree in 2013. She has been a wound care nurse from 2013 until her current position with Dr. Tom. She is wound care certified. Cindy hopes to share a smile and a bit of encouragement to all of our patients. She loves to take pictures and the office is decorated with some of them. She loves hiking and swimming. She loves spending time with her family – Tom, Nicholas, Amber, Rebekah, Maggie, and Zoe.
Chronic Care Manager
Kim Loomis is a native of Harrison, Arkansas and is the Chronic Care Manager. Don’t let that title fool you, she will be seen doing many things throughout the office.

Kim looks forward to getting to know all of the patients and their families during this transition process.
