Buffalo, N.Y. (December 3, 2019): General Physician, PC is pleased to announce a new partnership with OB•GYN Associates of WNY.

The collaboration, which officially launches in January, partners OB•GYN Associates’ 30 providers with more than 250 providers at General Physician, PC.

General Physician, PC’s President, Darryl Ernst, said the partnership was driven by a desire to continue the organization’s strategic growth aimed at improving quality, increasing access and enhancing services for patients.

“OB•GYN Associates of WNY has a tremendous reputation in the community,” Ernst said. “We are pleased to partner with their physicians and their team to continue to deliver outstanding care to their patients.

“This partnership forms the most comprehensive women’s health services practice in the region,” Ernst continued. “This will enable us to share best practices and strengthen the overall quality and accessibility of healthcare for women in the community.”

Carlos Santos, MD, is the managing partner of OB•GYN Associates of WNY.

“The alliance with General Physician, PC will provide us the ability to explore new and better opportunities to serve our patients and improve the care of this community,” he said. “The engagement will help us build on our existing network of providers and hospitals and expand the services available to those we care for.”

Dr. Santos stressed there will be no interruption of patient care, and patients of the practice will continue to have the same access to providers and facilities as they currently have under their insurance plans.

“Access to quality, individualized heath care is always a challenge. We want to reassure our patients that we are looking for new and exciting ways to deliver the care they deserve,” Dr. Santos said. “Together, we will strive to offer great facilities, professional, friendly staff, and the most advanced obstetric and gynecologic care in the area.”

With this partnership, OB•GYN Associates will be aligned with a growing number of General Physician, PC practices in the Southtowns, including offices in East Aurora, Hamburg, Orchard Park and West Seneca, offering Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Pain Management, Primary Care, General Surgery, and Women’s Health services.
