Florida-based Palm Medical Centers opened two new primary care medical practices in Tarrant County. With these new locations, Palm now operates four clinics in North Texas, with several additional locations scheduled to open before this summer.

The details

According to a news release, Palm Medical Centers opened its Keller Central site the same day it opened the Fort Worth/Tanglewood location.

The news release states the Keller location will be led by Dr. Mrunmayee Barve, an experienced family medicine practitioner with over 20 years of practice in value-based care and established roots in the community.

Quote of note

"We can’t think of a better way to start the new year than by welcoming the new physicians and clinical teams at these two facilities," Palm Medical Centers CEO Fowad Choudhry said. "Both communities will benefit from expansion of our care delivery model, which keeps our physicians’ patient panels manageable, so they can have more frequent touch points and can spend the necessary personalized time that each patient deserves."
