Urban Family Practice's new East Side clinic is holding an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 2, to introduce itself to the East Side community.
The clinic is located at 1315 Jefferson Ave., near Utica Street, the former location of a UB Family Medicine clinic that closed a year ago. Dr. Raul Vazquez, CEO of the West Side-based Urban Family Practice clinic, bought it and opened the new Jefferson Family Practice in January. Dr. Chet Fox, chief medical officer at Urban Family Practice, oversees the new East Side facility.
"I'm excited that we can do this for the community," Fox said in a statement. "I'm excited that we can restore primary care, and that we can do it in a way that we're rebuilding the care model of the future."
Saturday's event will include a free bike helmet giveway, tours of the facility and free lunch vouchers.
