Important Practice News 

The physicians of Carolina Family Practice & Sports Medicine would like to take a moment and share some exciting changes to our practice.

First, we would like to thank you for your patience as our Cary Location has undergone a significant physical change. The additional space and much needed facelift to the existing space were much needed and we look forward to finalizing these changes for the benefit of both patients and staff. 


Second, we would like to welcomeMark Sakr, DO to our CFP&SM Family.  Dr. Sakr is a familiar face, as he completed his Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship through UNC-Chapel Hill & CFP&SM.  Dr. Sakr will begin seeing patients in November.


Finally, effective November 1, CFP&SM will embark on a new affiliation as a Duke Private Diagnostic Clinic (PDC).  The decision to affiliate with the PDC was made after thoughtful consideration and much due diligence on the part of our partner physicians and management team.  This new affiliation will provide numerous benefits to our patients.  It will allow us to keep our billing in house, providing a consistent level of service in this area.  CFP&SM will have greater autonomy in several areas, thus allowing our clinic the opportunity to pursue programming and services to better serve our entire patient population.  We will also continue to focus on maintaining and advancing our status as a NCQA Patient Centered Medical Home.


Concurrent to this transition, James R. Stevens, MD will begin serving as the physician administrator for CFP&SM.


As a result of the transition to the PDC, you may receive a letter from your insurance company stating the physicians of CFP&SM are no longer in-network due to our departure from Novant Medical Group.  We will still be in-network with your insurance.  Please call our billing department at 919-238-2000, option 6 with any questions or concerns.  In fact, effective November 1, we will also now be in-network with Duke Select.


CFP&SM will celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2013.  We take a great amount of pride in how our clinic has grown and the reputation we have established in theWakeCountyarea.  If you have any feedback about your experience with our clinic, we would very much like to hear it, as growth is a result of listening to our patients and their concerns and feedback.


We are sincerely appreciative that you allow us the privilege to serve as your healthcare provider.
