Aiken Doctor Merges with CPC
Leo Muniz, M.D., L.L.C. and Center for Primary Care (CPC) have announced the merger of their offices effective Sept. 14. The newest office in the CPC organization and its team of dedicated physician owners will be known as CPC–Leo Muniz, M.D.
CPC was established in 1993 and has grown to a primary care group of 35 Board Certified physicians, one Family Nurse Practitioner and one Physician Assistant. With this merger, CPC will now have nine offices throughout the CSRA.
Muniz has been a physician since 1980. He completed his Residency in Family Practice in Wichita Falls, Texas, through the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Family Practice, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Practice. Prior to his move to Aiken, Dr. Muniz was a physician in Massachusetts, Texas and Oklahoma. He is married to Terry Frommer Muniz, an Aiken native. They moved from Texas to Aiken in 2001 to be near family, and Dr. Muniz has provided primary care to Aiken County and the surrounding area ever since.
Muniz will serve as the medical director of his local operation in Aiken.
“My merger with CPC represents a win-win for my patients as well as for our office,” Muniz said. “This union will bring shared information technology, management and other back office operations allowing for continued and enhanced primary care in Aiken.”
The office will have new signs acknowledging the merger, and the staff and day-to-day operations will remain the same. Patients can expect to receive the same high quality medical care they have grown accustomed to. Muniz’s staff includes, Karon Garman, Family Nurse Practitioner, Ashley Thomas, Business Supervisor, Natasha Rhinehart, Certified Medical Assistant, Lisa Setzer, Front Office, Elizabeth Carl, Certified Medical Assistant, Catharine Scott, Certified Medical Assistant, and Kristin Walp, Certified Medical Assistant.
Lou Imbrogno, the CEO of CPC, said, “CPC welcomes the merger with Leo Muniz, M.D., L.L.C. The collective strength of our organization will allow increased service offerings and enhanced recruitment capabilities so our practice will continue to serve the Aiken community well into the future.”
