St James Primary Care: Accepting New Patients

From St James:

October 1, 2020…UR St. James Primary Care is accepting new patients of all ages. Located at 7309 Seneca Rd., Suite 109 in Hornell, the practice offers complete care for adults, newborns and children.

“Our team is comprised of physicians Rhonda Peterson, Adrian Ashdown and Joanne Nazareth, and advanced practitioners Kimberley Betker, Marietta Goodliff, Sharon Smith and Alicia McHale,” said Tammy Criss, practice manager.

As part of St. James Hospital, the group provides patients with a proactive approach to primary care. UR Medicine was the first primary care center in the region to be Level 3 certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance – the highest rating for this new model of care.

“We work proactively to help keep patients healthy, not just treat them once they become sick,” said Criss. “Our providers are experts in helping patients manage chronic conditions, like diabetes and heart disease, to avoid complications and unnecessary trips to the emergency room. They work closely with St. James Hospital and specialists at UR Medicine so patients can feel confident they will receive exceptional care for the whole family.”

In addition to providing excellent care, St. James Primary Care is supported by the area’s most advanced medical records system.

“Our system tracks health issues for each patient so that your provider can remind you when you need preventive care, such as a mammogram or colonoscopy,” said Criss. “This allows us to spend more time with patients, and ultimately have a more positive impact on their health.”

UR St. James Primary Care is open weekdays at 8am, with late appointments available on Tuesday and Thursday. To inquire about becoming a new patient please call (607) 385-3700.
