Physician Profile

Dr. Alan P. Mullins has the distinction of completing formal training in advanced head and neck oncologic surgery resulting in specialty expertise in treating diseases of the upper and digestive tract, thyroid, parathyroid, salivary gland, skin and soft tissue. He serves on the Owensboro Health Cancer Committee and as the liaison physician to the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. Dr. Mullins joined One Health Surgical Specialists (previously known as Ohio Valley Surgical Specialists) in 1996 and the One Health medical group in 2013.

He enjoys forming meaningful relationships with his patient. He emphasizes the importance of spending time and talking with patients so that he can help them make the best treatment decisions for their lifestyle. In many cases, especially cancer, treatment involves a collaboration of many doctors but Dr. Mullins forms a personal relationship with each of his patients.

“For me to be a good doctor and tell the patient the best treatment options, I have to know them. To know the right thing to do, you’ve got to sit down, talk to the patient and get to know them,” Dr. Mullins said. “All the tests in the world might not tell you some of the things you would glean by sitting in an office and talking to them. It’s time well-spent.”

Dr. Mullins sees patients at the Owensboro and Tell City offices. He also has staff privileges at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital, Owensboro Surgery Center, Deaconess Hospital and Perry County Memorial Hospital. 

Dr. Mullins is a second-generation surgeon and enjoys thoroughbred horse racing, U of L basketball and spending his free time on the water at Kentucky Lake.
