Chapin Family Practice has served the Chapin community for more than 40 years.
The practice opened its doors in 1982 when Joseph Evans, MD, took over a rural health clinic in Chapin. It moved to its current office at 1612 Chapin Road in 1990 and expanded the building in 1999. As Chapin Family Practice continued to work to meet the needs of its fast-growing community, its providers decided to join Lexington Medical Center in 2005.
“We have experienced significant growth over the years, which has allowed our practice to be successful and fulfill our mission of helping those in our community. Because of the strong physician network within LMC, we can provide better benefits to our staff and better access and resources for our patients,” said Johnette Kinard, practice manager.
From a single physician at a rural clinic to a seven-provider practice in LMC’s network of care, Chapin Family Practice provides comprehensive care to patients of all ages, including adult and pediatric well visits, minor orthopaedic care and surgeries, pulmonary function testing and stress testing. Dr. Evans still practices full time at Chapin Family Practice, alongside Javier E. Carles, MD; Daniel H. Dunbar, MD; James P. Phillips, MD; J. Manuel Venegas, MD; Betty Pelletier, ANP; and Lauren Powell, DNP, FNP-C. And the practice is still growing.
“We have been blessed to have had many wonderful providers and staff work in our practice. Many of them have been here for more than 20 years, and all of them have personally helped shape Chapin Family Practice into what it is today,” said Johnette. The dedication of the staff and providers at Chapin Family Practice extends outside the practice setting as well. They volunteer their time and expertise in the community by offering free and discounted camp physicals and serving at the local free medical clinic. Several providers participate in medical mission trips in the U.S. and abroad.
Chapin Family Practice is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
and is accepting new patients.
