Sodus Community Health has opened its new health center at 6341 Ridge Road in Sodus (next to Reed Eye Associates). Over the years, the number of medical and dental patients served at the Middle Road location has dramatically increased which necessitated the building of a new, expanded health center with double the number of exam rooms. In addition, the new facility will allow Sodus to accept even more new medical and dental patients. Sodus Community Health also offers telehealth consultations that connect patients with out-of-area specialists and Financial Advocates to help with New York State of Health Marketplace insurance.
“Sodus Community Health was our first health center and we continue our commitment to this community. We’ve invested in this spectacular new, all-in-one health center for medical, dental, reproductive health, and behavioral health services,” said Mary Zelazny, CEO, Finger Lakes Community Health.
The lead physician is Dr. Robert Shelly who joined the health center in 2010. He is board certified in both Pediatrics and Internal Medicine which allows him to care for children from birth and adults of all ages. Also in Sodus is Dr. Rachel Long who is board certified in Family Medicine caring for all ages including children. Both are fluent in Spanish. Our dentists in Sodus include our Dental Director, Anthony Mendicino and Christopher Lehfeldt.
Sodus Community Health is celebrating Health Center Week with an Open House on August 8th from 4-6 pm. Healthy snacks and refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
