Dear Patient,


I am writing to share some important news regarding our practice. This letter is to inform you that effective January 1, 2024, our practice will merge with Oaklawn Medical Group, a respected healthcare provider in our community, and become Oaklawn Medical Group – Wright Medical Primary Care. This transition will bring about some changes, but our commitment to providing you with the highest quality care remains unwavering.


By joining forces with Oaklawn Medical Group, we will strengthen the partnership and continue to access a broader network of healthcare resources, advanced technology, and specialized medical expertise that will benefit your overall health and well-being.


Here are some key points about the practice acquisition and what it means for you:


  1. Continuity of Care: Your health and the trust you place in our practice are of utmost importance to us. You will continue to receive the same level of care from myself and a dedicated healthcare team.

    1. Providers will be David M. Byrens, MD, Ron Applebey, PA-C and Shannon Hepler, FNP-C.

  2. Same Location: Our practice location will remain the same, and you can continue to visit us at 215 E. Mansion Street, Suite 2F, in Marshall, MI. There will be no changes to our contact information.

  3. Insurance: Our insurance processes will remain unchanged, and you can continue to use the same insurance coverage for your medical care.

  4. Patient Portal: We will be transitioning to the Athena Health portal, effective 1/1/2024. More information will come soon, including how to sign up or create an account.

  5. Your Feedback: Your feedback and concerns are important to us. We are committed to addressing any questions or concerns you may have during this transition. Please feel free to reach out to our office, and we will be happy to assist you.


We are confident that our practice will continue to function as it has in the past and our goal is to make this transition as seamless as possible. Your health, comfort, and trust are our top priorities, and we are excited about the partnership that this acquisition brings.


Thank you for entrusting us with your healthcare needs. We look forward to continuing to serve you with the same level of dedication and compassion that you have come to expect from us. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
