Dr. Katharine Barnard Practice Changes

No Longer Primary Care Provider as of April 2023

Dear Patients and Families,

I am writing to let you know that my last day as a primary care provider at Family Health Center will be on July 21, 2023. While I will continue to work as a physician in Worcester, I will be doing community-based work and will not continue to have a primary care panel in the way that I have up until now. 

It has been a sincere honor to be your primary care provider over the past many years, to get to know you and your families, and to be a part of your lives. I am grateful for the trust and confidence that you have shown me, and the stories and experiences we have shared. Our interactions have shaped me as a person and as a physician, and will stay with me as I enter the next part of my life.

Even though I will not be a primary care provider at Family Health Center, you are welcome to continue receiving care here, and will receive complete medical care from Team 4 until such a time as you are assigned to a new primary care provider. Please contact the Health Center at 508-860-7700 to schedule any appointments, for medication refills, or with medical concerns.

Please note that your medical information will remain with Family Health Center as I move on. If you wish to access or have copies of your records, please contact the Medical Records Department of the Health Center.

Wishing you all the best,

Katharine Barnard, MD
