Update for patients of Dr. Wayne Wilson


Dr. Wayne Wilson
 

(Updated July 15, 4:40 p.m.)

A local physician has closed his doors, and all of his patients will need to make other arrangements for medical care, prescription refills, and transfer of medical records.

The medical practice of Dr. Wayne V. Wilson, MD, in the Bethlehem Community, closed Friday, July 15, at 12 noon, in preparation for Wilson to report July 18 to the Federal Bureau of Prisons to begin serving an 18-month sentence in a Medicare fraud conviction.

A staff member with Dr. Wilson’s office told The Times that the physician has several thousand patients at the practice who will be affected. Patients of Dr. Wilson had not been informed of the office closure, the staff member stated.

However, Dr. Wilson has made arrangements with Catawba Valley Medical Group in Hickory. CVMG is in the process of taking possession of the medical records of Wilson’s patients, according to Brian McGinnis, CVMG Executive Director. Patients do not have to choose a provider in the CVMG network unless they wish to do so.
