Friday, June 17, 2016

Staunton Medical Associates, the primary care medical practice of Kerry Alexander, MD, Stephanie Pitsilos, MD, and Susan Becker, FNP-C will join Augusta Medical Group on October 1, 2016.

"Dr. Alexander, Dr. Pitsilos and Ms. Becker are excellent providers and well-respected by both patients and healthcare providers in the area," said Scott Just, MD, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Augusta Medical Group. "This new relationship will allow us to work even more closely with them to bring high quality medical care to the community."

The group will continue at the same location—42 Lambert Street, Suite 511 in Staunton—with the same phone number and staff. Current patients do not have to take any action to continue to be seen. All records and appointments will remain in place.

"This exciting new endeavor—joining Augusta Medical Group—will better equip us to care for our patients in the future and work together to improve their health, and the health of our community as a whole. We realize that any change, even a positive one, can lead to questions and concerns. Our patients at Staunton Medical Associates can rest assured that we will be sending them a detailed, formal letter as we get closer to October," added Dr. Pitsilos.
