WILMINGTON — CMH Regional Health System and Wilmington Physicians Group announced Tuesday that they’ve brought on a new full-time physician, Achint Choksy, MD, who will join Glenn Rogers, MD and Cynthia Bevan, CNP at Pinnacle Primary Care Physicians, a primary care practice in Wilmington.
Greg Nielsen, CEO of CMH Regional Health System, expressed the importance of bringing Dr. Choksy to Wilmington:
“This region has a great need for family medicine physicians, and we’re working hard to make sure that our patients in Clinton, Highland, and Fayette County have access to excellent primary care,” he said. “We’re excited to welcome Dr. Choksy to our medical staff. Dr. Choksy is highly qualified, and we’re confident he’ll be a great addition to the Wilmington practice.”
Dr. Choksy received his Doctor of Medicine degree from Avalon University School of Medicine Netherlands-Antilles and completed his residency in Family Medicine at Wright State University’s Boonshoft School of Medicine in Dayton. While in Dayton, he started and co-directed the Dayton Ladder Program at Five Rivers Health Center, a medical pipeline and mentorship venue for Dayton’s underserved youth. Dr. Choksy is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Medical Association.
Chief Medical Officer, Dr. John Hollon, spoke of Dr. Choksy’s love of research and passion for preventive care:
