After 50 wonderful years of serving the citizens of Logan and surrounding counties, Oakhill Medical Associates has decided to dissolve its organization. It has been with a sense of gratitude that we have served you with your family healthcare needs. Over these years we have delivered babies, raised families, cared for the elderly and helped with end of life care. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to serve you over these many years. Our last effective date as Oakhill Medical Associates will be February 29, 2016.

Dr. Roger Kauffman is announcing his impending retirement effective March 1, 2016. Dr. Roger Kauffman came to Logan County after his residency training and has served this practice for 36 years.

As the patient, you have the option of choosing a practice that will meet your healthcare needs. While we cannot speak for all practices in the community, we do know that Community Health & Wellness and Hickory Medical Direct Primary Care are accepting new patients. Both practices have grown out of Oakhill Medical Associates and either practice will welcome you and your families and will provide you with the same patient care you have come to appreciate and expect. As of March 1, 2016, Community Health & Wellness will assume custody of all medical records of Oakhill Medical Associates.

Even though February 29, 2016 is the formal end of Oakhill Medical Associates, it has been a true honor, privilege and pleasure to serve you. As we transition, we hope you will find your continued healthcare smooth and uninterrupted. Please contact our office if you need assistance in making the transition to a practice of your choosing.
