Iora Primary Care is entering the North Carolina market with a new location in Winston-Salem, celebrating with a ribbon cutting and open house on August 28th. The office will be located at 3274 Silas Creek Parkway. Iora, which provides primary care services to older adults on Medicare, currently has locations in eight states.

“We are thrilled to enter North Carolina, a state that leads innovation in many sectors of our economy, with our own innovative way of caring for members of the community. We know that when you invest in relationships and support patients beyond the traditional expectations of primary care, people stay healthier and lead happier lives,” says Rushika Fernandopulle, MD, MPP, co-founder and CEO of Iora.

Iora’s care model includes longer appointments, an integrated health care team, on-site labs, and 24/7 access to doctors by phone for urgent needs. The office will be welcoming patients with UnitedHealthcare, Humana and Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Medicare Advantage plans as well as all patients with Original Medicare with or without a supplemental plan.

Bryan Stanistreet, MD, is board-certified in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Prior to joining Iora, he cared for hospitalized patients at Wake Forest Baptist Health – Lexington Medical Center. Dr. Stanistreet values relationships and families in patient care and believes it is important to educate patients so they can make the best choices for their health.
