Health care providers from Charlotte Medical Group and Family Care Specialists in Charlotte have expanded their family medicine practice to Eaton Rapids as One Team Family Health.

In addition to their current practices, Kimberly Friar, M.D., from Charlotte Medical Group, and Todd Otten, M.D., and Julie Coenen, N.P., from Family Care Specialists are now scheduling patients at the new Eaton Rapids location at 1415 S. Main Street, Suite C, in front of the Family Fare grocery store.

“We care for quite a few Eaton Rapids patients in our Charlotte practices,” said Dr. Friar. “Our new location provides additional flexibility and scheduling options for those patients, as well as any local residents who are looking for a primary care provider in that area.”

One Team Family Health is accepting new patients. The office is currently open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. Dr. Friar sees patients Tuesdays, Dr. Otten sees patients Wednesdays and Fridays, and Ms. Coenen sees patients Thursdays. The other days of the week the providers will continue to schedule patients in their Charlotte offices. Call (517) 663-4809 if you have any questions or to schedule an appointment in Eaton Rapids.

The One Team Family Health practice manages care for patients of all ages. In addition to preventive medicine the providers specialize in men’s and women’s health, pediatrics, obesity management and diabetes. It collaborates with local health care services to provide comprehensive, convenient care. The practice also accepts same day appointments for more urgent medical needs.

“I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them best manage their health throughout the various stages of life,” Dr. Otten said. “I look forward to meeting many more families as we grow our practice in Eaton Rapids.”
