Urban Family Practice has opened a new office on Buffalo’s East Side

Urban Family Practice has opened a new office on Buffalo’s East Side, in the Jefferson-Utica Plaza. The purchase has kept primary care in a neighborhood where choices for family medicine care are few. An open house on June 2, 2018 w offered residents a chance to tour the facility and more.

Urban Family Practice opened its second location Monday at 1315 Jefferson Ave. in the former location of the University at Buffalo Family Medicine Clinic, filling a gap in basic medical services left by the recent closure of several offices.

Last June, 7,000 patients, mainly East Side residents, received a letter stating that UB Family Medicine was closing its primary care clinic on Jefferson Avenue because of difficulties recruiting physicians to the practice to supervise the training of residents there.

Dr. Raul Vazquez, chief executive officer of Urban Family Practice on Niagara Street, purchased the clinic site. The new Jefferson Avenue Urban Family Practice will be operated by Dr. Chet Fox, a former professor at UB's Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences who used to work at the clinic.

“I was there, so I get to be the clinical leader at my old site – so my new site, is my old site," Fox said in a statement.

The opening of Jefferson Family Practice also coincides with the recent closure of Lifetime Health's William E. Mosher Health Clinic on Main Street downtown. Fox said the closing of the Mosher Clinic left an additional 5,000 to 7,000 patients looking for a primary care doctor, and Urban Family Practice will attempt to absorb as many of those patients as it can.

“I’m excited that we can do this for the community, I’m excited that we can restore primary care, and that we can do it in a way that we’re building the care model of the future,” said Fox.
