Healthcare has been evolving rapidly with the passage of the Affordable Care Act. As ObamaCare unfolds, the model of primary-care practice has changed. The major thrust has been larger practices that are associated with hospitals to handle larger volumes of patients expected to be in the 30% range.
In response to these changes, we are pleased to announce that the Partners of CNY Internists have opted to offer our patients two alternatives:
Dr. Croglio, Dr. Brodowski and Dr. Zmolek have joined Internists Associates of Central New York, a unit of the Crouse Medical Practice. Dr. Croglio and Dr. Brodowski will continue to practice at the Brittonfield Office, which is effective January 9, 2015, a unit of the Crouse Medical Practice. Dr. Zmolek will continue his practice at the Crouse Medical Practice Manlius Office which has joined with Dr. Zmolek at The Marketplace.
The alternative response to this movement is the development of more personalized care practices (also called concierge practices) with smaller rather than larger practices, geared to providing more attention with minimal waits and longer office visits with purposely limited size of the practice. Dr. Stringer and Dr. Cupelo have opted to continue their practices given this new model of practice.
In our group of CNY Internists physicians , Dr. Becker, Dr. Goldman, Dr. Pinkes and Dr. Kragh and Dr. Satterly have all opted to retire from active private medical office practice..
