Family Practice Associates: 30 Years of Quality Care

jeff-foxxThree decades after he opened his practice as a one-man operation, Dr. Jeff Foxx has built Family Practice Associates of Lexington, PSC into one of the most forward thinking practices in the area.

Family Practice Associates in Hamburg now has 65 employees including nine Board Certified physicians, two nurse practitioners and one family and marriage therapist.

They are Dr. Keith T. Applegate, FAAFP; Dr. David P. Dubocq; Dr. W. Jeffrey Foxx, FAAFP; Dr. Joseph E. Gerhardstein, FAAFP; Dr. Diana C. Hayslip; Dr. Mary H. Henkel; Dr. Wesley W. Johnson; Dr. Susan M. Monohan; and Dr. John E. Reesor.

Plus, Cheryl B. Lewis, APRN, Todd Martin, APRN and Raleigh M. Kincaid, LMFT.

With eight family practice doctors and one physician who practices internal medicine and pediatrics, the practice covers the full life span from infants to the elderly.

Dr. Foxx has grown the practice because of patient loyalty, his ability to attract top doctors and his leadership in the field.

He has served on the Board of Directors at Baptist Health and hosts the monthly TV show “Care Central” on WKYT-TV.

Foxx and his colleagues at FPA also have utilized the latest technology to improve patient care and convenience. Highlights include:

  • Early adoption of electronic medical records to better document and track patient testing and treatments.
  • On-site laboratory for quicker results.
  • Patient Portal – A secure web-based communication option where patients can make appointments, check lab results and order prescription refills online.
  • Virtual Office Visits – Patients can post symptoms online, and doctors can send back diagnoses and treatment options.
  • Expanded Hours: FPA is open Saturday mornings, and Monday-Thursday till 7 p.m.

With all those features, perhaps it’s no surprise that FPA became the first practice in Lexington to receive National Committee for Quality Assurance recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home.

The NCQA stated that “Family Practice Associates has the tools, systems and resources to provide patients with the right care at the right time.”

This award validated FPA’s focus on a comprehensive approach to patient care. Instead of focusing on symptoms only, FPA doctors engage the patient and work together as a team to determine the best course of treatment.

Obviously, that has been a formula for success.
