Family Physician Vinay Sharma, MD, has joined Victory Medical Group’s Thorp Clinic and the medical staff of Ministry Our Lady of Victory Hospital. He will begin seeing patients on July 27. Dr. Sharma and his wife, Dr. Kahlon, who joined the Thorp Clinic in July of last year, will have their clinic area in the lower level of the newly repaired and remodeled Thorp Clinic.
“In January we experienced significant water damage when a pipe broke during the weekend and the lower level was flooded. The area has now been renovated and remodeled,” according to Cindy Lindgren, clinic manager. “Patients seeing Dr. Sharma or Dr. Kahlon will be able to use the lower entrance where they will have separate registration and waiting to smooth the patient flow. Dr. Charles Wirtz, M.D. and Peter Gintner, PA-C will continue to see patients in the upper level using that entrance and registration area.”
Cynthia Eichman, president of Ministry Our Lady of Victory Hospital and Victory Medical Group says, “We’re putting the ‘family’ in family medicine in our Thorp Clinic as we welcome Dr. Kahlon’s husband, Dr. Sharma, to our team.”
