Eagle Mother’s Day Lunch
This past Sunday on Mother's Day, Eagle’s Walk-In Clinic clinical lead, Allyson and the x-ray lead, Allison surprised all of the staff and physicians with a lunch in honor of Mother's Day. It was a total surprise, that they put together and paid for themselves. Their kindness to their co-workers left a loving impression on all the ladies (mother’s and daughter’s) who were working that day and had to share Mother’s Day with Eagle. Thank you Allyson and Allison for being such strong amazing women!
Happy Birthday to Eagle Family Medicine @ Guilford College physician Dr. Francis Wong! An avid outdoors person and cyclist, the woodsy cake scene with bicycle and dog that the staff got him was a huge hit. Happy Birthday Dr. Wong - we love you!

Eagle's 2nd Walk With A Doc Event
As part of our commitment to helping our community Stay Healthy™, Eagle has partnered with the national "Walk With A Doc" program. On one Saturday morning each month, the entire community is invited to come out and hear a 5-minute health information talk from one of our doctors and then take a 45 minute group walk with that doctor. Eagle's second Walk With A Doc event is Saturday, May 13th at 9am (early registration at 8:45am). It will be hosted by Dr. Benita Varnado of Eagle OB/GYN at Latham Park (324 Wendover Ave. across from the Weaver Park Center building on the corner of Wendover and Cridland). This is open to the community so everyone is invited to come out, get active, get educated and get social in less than an hour! We are walking in a public park, so baby strollers and leashed pets are welcome. We look forward to seeing you!
Supporting Autism Awareness Month
Eagle Internal Medicine @ Tannenbaum employees know how to rally around a good cause! Many of the staff recently made cash donations to purchase special educational items for a classroom of autistic students as Our Lady of Grace school as a way to show their support to the daughter of a colleague during Aprilâ€™s Autism Awareness Month. Thank you ladies for taking care of our community both inside and outside of the Eagle office!
Tanger Properties Annual Health Fair
Eagle Physicians had a great day, April 12th interacting with the employees of Tanger Properties. Their annual health fair was an awesome opportunity for individuals to get face-to-face with providers and make better health choices. Eagle was glad to participate in a packed event of close to 200 employees and remind everyone to Stay Healthy.
walk with a Doc
Eagle's 1st Walk With A Doc event Saturday, April 8th was a huge success with a turn-out of over 30 people, a dozen or more dogs and loads of baby strollers. Eagle OB/GYN Dr. Evelyn Varnado led the team of confident walkers on an easy 40 minute walk through Latham Park that was paced for both fast and slow walkers. It was a beautiful morning to connect with patients and make new friends; both 2 and 4 legged. Please mark your calendars for this monthly event that occurs on the 2nd Saturday of each month 9am. Our next walk will be May 13th and we'll post more information soon about it.

National Doctors' Day
March 30th is National Doctors' Day and today (and every day) Eagle staff celebrates our physicians with respect, admiration and gratitude for our doctors strength and tireless dedication to their life's work. We are proud to serve our patients with you. #EagleDocsRock!
Eagle Family Medicine @ Brassfield Lab Technician Dee wanted to do something special for the community and came up with the idea of collecting gently used purses and pocketbooks and filling them with personal items for homeless women. All the staff and physicians at Brassfield loved the idea and collectively brought in 28 purses and filled them with useful toiletries and women's personal items - there were so many donations from staff and providers that they had more items than purses and were able to deliver all of the supplies and purses to the Greensboro Urban Ministry Women's Shelter this week. Thank you Dee and everyone at Brassfield for your big hearts and for the quality care you deliver to our community - both inside and outside of the Eagle office!
Breakfast on the Go
Eagle Physicians' Lake Jeanette office was out in their local community today joining the staff at Summit Village Apartments to offer a "Breakfast on the Go" reminding residents that to Stay Healthy you need to start the day with a healthy breakfast. Residents appreciated that their local health provider was actively helping them Stay Healthy!
Welcoming Our New Oak Ridge Provider!
Kaitlin Stock, NP:
“I chose to become a family nurse practitioner because I enjoy providing care to patients of all ages. It allows me the opportunity to develop long term relationships with my patients and their families. I value the trust and respect that comes with these relationships. For me it is important to remember that behind every disease is a person with hopes, dreams and even fears. I strive to provide my patients with the best quality care to allow them to sustain a long healthy life.”
Scrubs Vs. Suits
Eagle Physicians was a sponsor of the doctors vs. lawyers charity basketball game on February 26th to benefit the Mustard Seed Community Health project and Sunday’s game was a fabulous event as professionals in our community came together in friendly competition to help support Greensboro’s medical clinic mission. A silent auction helped raise additional funds for this worthwhile cause and true to their profession, the physicians were showing off their healthy game, while the lawyers argued referee calls……..so much fun! Thank you to everyone who came to cheer them on and support this valuable community medical resource.
Annual Scholarship Gala at Greensboro Medical Society
Saturday, February 11th was an exciting evening at the Greensboro Medical Society as they held their annual Scholarship Gala to benefit medical students, in support of local health careers. The Greensboro Medical Society also honored the achievements of some of the Triads first practicing African American physicians. This beautiful event themed, "A Night in Paris" was held at the Grandover Resort and Conference Center and Eagle Gastroenterology’s Dr. Vincent Schooler, as President of the Greensboro Medical Society was there to lead the festive evening with dinner and dancing and award scholarships to deserving students.

Eagle Celebrates 20 Years!
Eagle Physicians & Associates, PA celebrated its 20th anniversary October 1st. As a premier physician-owned, independent, multi-specialty medical group, Eagle has navigated 20 years of health care change and adapted to reform through progressive enhancement of patient care. Founded in 1995 by five primary care groups, Eagle now has 11 offices in a variety of specialties including family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics & gynecology, gastroenterology, sleep medicine and endocrinology.
Eagle also has a state-of-the art endoscopy center which is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care as an ambulatory surgery center. The center performs colonoscopies and endoscopies in a cost-effective outpatient environment. Ancillary services include laboratory, bone mineral density testing and ultrasound, which complement Eagle’s slate of specialties and medical providers.
Eagle’s Walk-In Clinic, which opened in 2000, offers evening, weekend and holiday care to both Eagle and non-Eagle patients on a walk-in basis. The Walk-in Clinic affords patients with the flexibility of receiving medical care at a time when it is convenient for them and their families with less cost and shorter wait times than emergency medicine.
Health care has changed rapidly in recent years, and Eagle was one of the first private practices in the Greensboro community to implement Electronic Medical Records (EMR) – launching eClinical Works in 2009. Implementation of the EMR greatly enhanced patient care by supporting continuity of care via medical information sharing among a patient’s Eagle providers. The accompanying patient portal allows patients online access to their health information. It’s a quick and easy way for patients to communicate electronically with their doctor’s office through email, appointment requests, prescription refill requests and viewing lab results. In 2013, as a continuation of efforts to help patients stay healthy, Eagle went through a rigorous year-long process to achieve Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition. Attaining the highest level of recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (Level 3) in 2014, this award honors distinguished excellence in healthcare and puts the patient at the center of our team-based approach to quality care.
Eagle’s CEO, Vicki Gregory, who has spent the past 20 years in various roles at Eagle, cites pride in her physicians stating “It’s not often that you see longevity in employment. Seventeen of our 50 physicians have been with Eagle these past 20 years with many more having retired from their medical careers at Eagle. The level of patient commitment that Eagle embodies plays out through the generations of families being cared for at Eagle. We walk life’s journeys with our patients and see “babies” grow up and go off to college, children become parents and adults become grandparents. It’s amazing to look back and see how far we’ve come and see how putting patients first is what got us here. We are honored by the confidence this community places in us and we thank our patients for 20 years of trusting us with their healthcare.”
Eagle is growing! Please help us welcome the newest provider to our team: Dr. Francis Wong at Guilford College. Check out the web individual page and call the office for an appointment if needed.
Patient Centered Medical Home
As we continue our efforts to help patients Stay Healthy, Eagle has received the highest level recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance and has been designated as a Certified Patient Centered Medical Home, which is one of the highest medical practice honors for distinguished excellence in healthcare.
