GREENVILLE, S.C., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PartnerMD, a membership medical practice based in Richmond, Virginia, plans to open its first South Carolina practice in Greenville on January 7, 2013. This practice is the organization's first office outside of Virginia. PartnerMD provides its members with a practice focused on prevention and whole-person care. Patients receive 24/7 access to a PartnerMD physician; on-time, no-rush appointments; a personalized Personal Health Portfolio detailing results of their annual physical and many other amenities not offered by traditional primary care practices. Family practice physician Jack C. Durham, Jr., MD, the thirteenth physician to join PartnerMD, will help launch the Greenville office, to be located at 12 Maple Tree Court, Suite 103 as the practice's first provider. Dr. Durham has been in family practice in Greenville for more than 30 years.
"We have extensively researched Greenville, and we are excited about opening a practice there. It's a vibrant city with a great mix of families, professionals and corporate headquarters. We plan to branch out to other nearby cities in the future," said Linda Nash, CEO & Founder of PartnerMD.
PartnerMD currently serves more than 4,600 members in Richmond, Midlothian, McLean and Lansdowne, Virginia. James Mumper, Chief Medical Officer, stated, "We're a solid company with 10 years of experience in providing exceptional care to our patients. We enjoy a 95 percent patient retention rate and look forward to bringing the same level of patient satisfaction to the Greenville market."
"PartnerMD understands that time with the patient is key," says Dr. Durham. "I'm looking forward to practicing medicine how we should be practicing medicine. More time with the patient means we have the resources to prevent diseases, not simply treat them. This will make all the difference in their future health."
