Important Information for My Patients of Clifton Park Family Medicine

With the retirement of my colleague Dr. Shelley Justa, Clifton Park Family Medicine has arranged to consolidate with our neighboring CCP family practice in Clifton Park. Effective January 9, our office will become a part of Community Care Family Medicine (CCFM) and remain in its current location.

While I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here in Clifton Park, I will be relocating to another primary care practice in Community Care Physicians (CCP), Schodack Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, as of January 2nd. I would be happy to continue to care for you at my new practice – the address is 35 Empire State Boulevard, Castleton-On-Hudson, NY 12033, located at Exit 10, off of I-90, in the Corporate Capital Campus. Schodack Internal Medicine and Pediatrics cares for patients of all ages. If the Schodack practice is an inconvenient location for you, you can remain with the practice in Clifton Park, and you will not need to transfer care or do anything further.

I have sent a communication to all of my patients via mail and email. Please view a copy of the communication here. If you need an appointment with me before January 2nd, please continue to contact Clifton Park Family Medicine. For appointments after January 9th please either call my new office in Schodack at (518) 477-2167 or call CCFM at (518) 371-9355 to establish with a new primary care provider in Clifton Park at Community Care Family Medicine. Whichever office you choose, as practices of CCP, you will not need to transfer records. I am confident you will continue to receive the care and service you deserve at any Community Care location you choose.
