New doctor sees patients in Clifton Springs

Midlakes Medical Care in Clifton Springs has a new family medicine physician with more than 20 years of experience.

Jonathon V. Lammers of Hopewell joined the primary care practice effective July 22 and is accepting new patients of all ages.

A Chicago native who graduated from Marion Central High School in Marion, Wayne County, Lammers is a U.S. Air Force veteran who obtained a bachelor’s degree in biology from Cornell University in Ithaca and a master’s in natural sciences from SUNY Buffalo. With a medical degree from Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, Lammers did his internship and residency at the Malcolm Grow Medical Center on Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland and most recently was a partner in Findlay Family Practice in Findlay, Ohio.

Lammers, who arrives at Midlakes Medical Care upon the retirement of physician Zbigniew Lukawski, has special interests in sports medicine and diabetes. He says his goal is to create long-standing relationships with his patients and provide continuity of care for them.

Midlakes Medical Care is recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a patient-centered medical home and is one of 11 primary care practices operated by UR Medicine Thompson Health.
