Provider Changes

Notice to patients of Dr Brandan Stark DO, Dr Seema Afsari DO. These changes will be effective June 1st unless otherwise stated

(1) Dr Brandan Stark will be leaving Argyll Medical Group on 5-31-21 to pursue practice in Washington State. Argyll Medical Group with the assistance of Enloe Medical Center is actively
recruiting to find a primary care physician to replace Dr Stark, and in the meantime the group’s physicians and mid-levels will provide care for you if you are a primary care patient. Please note Dr Stark’s addiction services practice and counseling service will be closing as of 5-31-21 and patients requiring these specialized services will need to find another provider. For primary care patients Dr Stark will provide up to 90 days of prescriptions, excluding narcotics, before his departure. Covering physicians / mid-levels will do prescriptions after this date if a new physician is not yet in place. An office visit or televisit may be required. Our aim is to have a new recruited physician / doctor in place to take over Dr Stark’s primary care practice June 1st or as soon as possible afterward. Any records requests should go to Dr Stark’s office or Argyll Group as currently, one free copy of records is available when transferring directly to another physician, other records requests may be charged for at the Dept of Consumer Affairs allowable rate. Patients of Shirley Huffman NP should continue to see her, however on June 1st her practice will become part of Dr Seema Afsari’s practice, and she will work in association with Dr Afsari.

(2) Dr Seema Afsari – is staying with Argyll Medical Group, but transitioning to telemedicine only from June 1st – and be on a leave of absence June 1st to Sept 1st. During this time Shirley Huffman NP and Nancy Bucey NP will cover her practice backed up by Group physicians if necessary. From Sept 1st Dr Afsari will be back consulting by telemedicine.

All practices will remain upstairs at Argyll Medical Group’s office at 100 Independence Circle, Chico.
There will be signage available on the change date, June 1st, 2021.
