Newswise — Physician Associates one of the largest multi-specialty healthcare groups in Central Florida and a part of Orlando Health will soon be offering its services in the Lake Nona area. The new office expects to open in January, 2015 in the Lake Nona Village, which is located on Narcoossee Road between the entrances to the Lake Nona Golf & Country Club and NorthLake Park. Alix Casler, MD; Daniel Goddard, MD and Norman Lamberty, MD will practice at the new location providing pediatrics, adult medicine and obstetrics and gynecologic services respectively.

“Lake Nona is a growing community and is certainly in need of additional primary care services,” said Dennis Buhring, CEO, Physician Associates. “We are excited for this opportunity to provide additional healthcare options to those living in the Lake Nona area, right in their own backyard.”

Physician Associates will relocate its physicians and staff from the Vista Lakes office on Chickasaw Trail to the Lake Nona location. With the opening in Lake Nona, the group will have 28 offices in four Central Florida counties: Lake, Orange, Seminole and Osceola. Drs. Casler and Lamberty will practice full-time at the Lake Nona location. Dr. Goddard will divide his time between the Lake Nona location and the Water’s Edge office in Edgewood.

Physician Associates, which is one of very few local practice groups that has been recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), currently consists of 97 physicians. The group’s specialties include family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatric gastroenterology, orthopedics, podiatry and neuromusculoskeletal medicine.
