    Thompson Health’s network of primary care sites is growing.
    Last year at this time, there were five sites. Currently, there are eight and plans call for future expansion.
    Last December, Macedon Kachoria Family Practice opened at 1033 Route 31 in Macedon following the donation of the practice to Thompson by Dr. Lekhraj B. Kachoria, who retired after nearly 40 years of practice in Macedon.
    Farmington Family Medicine at 5505 Route 96 in Farmington was founded by Dr. Marc S. Zarfes in 1985, and became part of Thompson this past February.
    In June, Dr. Zbigniew Lukawski joined Thompson. Now named Thompson Health Midlakes Medical Care, his practice remains at 16 E. Main St. in Clifton Springs, where it has been for 20 years.
    In addition, Dr. Kären M. Nickell of Palmyra has signed an agreement with Thompson as well, with both parties working together to develop the certificate of need application for state approval.  Dr. Joseph Duba recently signed with Thompson and is expected to begin seeing patients at Thompson’s Canandaigua Family Practice soon.
