Women at the helm of your health

Finding a doctor in Sussex County just got easier, thanks to the newly opened Quinn Medical Offices. The new medical office building is located at 800 North DuPont Blvd. and is home to Bayhealth Primary Care, Milford.

“Primary care is where healthcare really begins,” said Preeti Gupta, MD. “We take care of the whole person, and follow them throughout their life. If we want to focus on prevention over cure, we need patients to come see us regularly. This new building improves access for patients, which is important.”

Dr. Gupta has been practicing with Bayhealth in Milford for years, but is now joined by by Ambreen Raza, MD, and Anita Bapat, MD.

“Increased access to care is so vital for patients, especially in rural areas,” said Dr. Raza. “It’s important for community members to have strong connections and relationships with their family providers. Bayhealth has such a tremendous footprint in central and southern Delaware. We have so many specialties and providers; it’s great for the area.”

Patients can stay connected using Bayhealth’s patient portal, MyChart. This electronic health record allows patients to view lab results and schedule appointments. All Bayhealth Primary Care locations use the Epic electronic health record.

Dr. Bapat also sees patients at Bayhealth Primary Care, Harrington several days a week. “Primary care physicians connect the dots,” said Dr. Bapat. “We maintain the continuity between all the specialties and can see the whole picture with patients.”

The practice is unique in that it’s currently all female physicians. “It’s fun and special to be working in an office with all female providers,” said Dr. Bapat. “Women are great listeners, which is such a benefit for patients.”

Patient satisfaction is always top-of-mind for all the providers. “These folks have such a strong trust in us as providers, which is wonderful,” said Dr. Gupta. “The patients mean the world to me, and taking care of them is a real honor.”

“I’m so happy to be here,” said Dr. Raza. “The patients are so nice and welcoming. And they are truly interested in improving their health. It’s wonderful to be part of that process.”
