General Physician, PC Merges with Prestigious Medical Group

Western New York’s third-largest medical group rapidly expands with the addition of prestigious Primary Care Practice

General Physician, PC welcomes Lancaster Medical into the Primary Care service line.  With Lancaster Medical, the total number of providers under General Physician, PC increases to approximately 230 with over 60 locations across Western New York and Northern PA. Lancaster Medical will become General Physician, PC Primary Care – Lancaster, and expand the eastern suburb region of care.

Founded in 2010, General Physician, PC has since experienced tremendous growth, more than tripling the number of providers over the last few years. The goal is to attract the highest quality doctors in primary care and specialty care to further develop Kaleida Health and ECMC’s community-based clinical network. Currently, General Physician, PC is one of the region’s largest multi-specialty medical groups.

“The clinical integration of Lancaster Medical advances our vision of attracting the best doctors to our organization,” said Dr. Richard Charles, Chief Medical Officer for General Physician, PC.  “Lancaster Medical is a unique, high-caliber primary care practice that successfully transitioned from Fee-For-Service to Value-Based Reimbursement. They focus on preventive care and excel at achieving quality-based performance and care. With a patient-focused approach, they have built a substantially large practice on patient loyalty, patient trust, and patient satisfaction.”

Founded in 2003 by Dr. Kevin Cleary and Dr. William Kuehnling, Lancaster Medical employs a staff of nearly 30 and has a patient panel of well over 10,000. Their long-standing history of utilizing a team approach in coordinating comprehensive health care for their patients has earned them a reputation for high-quality care in the medical community. Patient services and providers at the Transit Road location in Depew will remain unchanged.

“Joining General Physician, PC will provide many benefits that allow our providers to enhance patient care,” emphasized Dr. Kevin Cleary, owner of Lancaster Medical.  “The timing is right. Given the demands and expectations of running a large, busy practice amid changing health care requirements, we are looking toward the future – expanding patient access to specialty services and continued growth.”

This clinical integration brings a very successful group of providers into the General Physician, PC organization. Their (Lancaster Medical) innovation and patient-centric approach make this a collaborative venture that will improve health care in the community.
