Expanding access for patients through One Health Family Medicine

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 7, 2022 – Atrium Health’s newest community care practice, Atrium Health Primary Care One Health Family Medicine NoDa, is now open and provides care for all ages. Located at 136 E. 36th Street, Suite200, the practice operates from 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Atrium Health welcomes back Dr. Allen Shepard to the area after serving patients at Atrium Health Primary Care One Health Family Medicine Mooresville.

Shepard hails from the Southwest, growing up in Arizona and completing medical training in Pennsylvania and San Diego. He moved to Charlotte to complete his residency training in 2016 and has been providing care predominately within the East Charlotte and Lake Norman communities. “At One Health we are focused on the individual, not only as a patient but also as a customer,” said Shepard. “We are focused on providing screening services and ongoing care.”

With the opening of One Health Family Medicine NoDa, residents of the NoDa neighborhood in Charlotte now have additional access to primary care services just minutes away. Services provided at the practice consist of preventative care and wellness exams, pediatric care from newborn to 18 years old, women’s health, including gynecological exams and birth control, geriatric care, management of chronic diseases, treatment of minor injuries and illnesses, same-day sick visits, in-office laboratory and minor surgical procedures. For additional convenience, all patients have access to their medical records and can easily schedule doctor’s office visits through MyAtriumHealth.

Steven Price, assistant vice president of practice operations, believes that providing primary care close to home for patients provides them with many benefits. “Benefits of a convenient location will help our patients reduce stress and help address their medical needs promptly,” said Price. Follow-up care is more likely if your provider is just minutes away. Seeing your primary care doctor on a regular basis is vital to maintaining your health and preventing possible health problems.”

The new practice will be staffed by highly trained physicians and family nurse practitioners. Shepard will be joined by Physician Assistant Savannah Fusaro.
