 Primary Medical: 2014 Reader's Choice, Best Family Doctor

Primary Medical wishes to thank our patients and voters who honored us as winner for "Best Family Doctor" in the 2014 Ventura County Star Readers' Choice Awards. Our healthcare team is grateful to be recognized by the community for our excellent patient care.

Primary Medical was established 20 years ago and has grown to include 14 physicans, 5 nurse practitioners, and 1 physican's assistant. Our staff serves patients in five offices in Ventura and Oxnard. All offices are accepting new patients and take most insurance plans, including Covered California, HMO,  PPO and Medicare. 

Primary Medical specializes in Pediatrics, Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Endocrinology. We use cutting-edge electronic medical records to help patients across all Primary Medical offices.

Our offices are family-friendly and our healthcare providers pay special attention to preventative care and regular monitoring for patients with chronic illnesses like high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. 

Primary Medical is happy to announce a few great additions to our practice.

Gerri Sylvester, M.D. who is our newest Internal Medicine doctor  working at our East Telegraph location

April Wyatt, F.N.P. who is our newest Nurse Practitioner working at our Johnson Drive location

Linda England,  M.D. who is our newest Family Practice doctor working at our West Telegraph location

We would also like to welcome Dr. Bruce J. Barbosa's patients to our practice. Dr. Barbosa has joined Primary Medical  in February 2015 to insure his patients have a medical practice to continue with when he starts his retirement in May 2015. We wish Dr. Barbosa a happy retirement!

A note from Kathy Smith, F.N.P

Dear Primary Medical Patients,

It is with mixed emotion that I announce a change in work status for Primary Medical.

In great anticipation, I will begin a new phase in my career working for the emergency department at Santa Paula Hospital. My last day will be Friday, May 8.  As many of you know, my background has been in emergency nursing and medicine. This move will enable me to get back to my roots, work less days weekly, and enable me to enjoy more free time.

In sadness, this move requires me to leave Primary Medical and transfer care of my precious patients to others. Our providers at Primary Medical are amazing, capable, caring providers. I have never known such an intelligent, empathetic group of doctors and nurse practitioners. The transition for you will be seamless.

Thank you for understanding how this move is beneficial to my life style. Leaving will be difficult as I have such a wonderful relationship with all of you!

Sincerely,

Kathy Smith, APRN, MSN, FNP-C
