Apple Ridge Family Medicine News

Moving our location
Dr. Smith has made the difficult decision to relocate to Thurmont Maryland in March of 2024.   The new office is located only 25 minutes south of our current location. 

Q and A:
1.  Can we still go to get labs/imaging/pharmacies in Gettysburg?

Yes, you may get labs, imaging, medications at local facilities.  We can order and will receive test results for any imaging or lab facility as we do currently.   For pharmacies, we can still send to Gettysburg and all surrounding areas.  
2.  What will happen to my medical records? 
Our office will retain your medical records required by law, if you choose to transfer your care, you may be asked to sign a record release.  It may take up to three (3) weeks to transfer your records.  If the new provider has EPIC as an EMR they will have immediate access to your records but will most likely still require a signed release for legal purposes.    
3.  Will all the providers at Apple Ridge Family Medicine be going to Evergreen Adult Medicine in Thurmont?
Dr. Talbot Smith and Meagan Weaver PA-C will be going to the Thurmont location.  All appointments already scheduled will be honored in Thurmont. 
4.  What will be in the building in which you are currently located? 
Dr. Talbot Smith is uncertain about what is going to happen with the current building.  Currently, he has no solidified plans to report.  
5.  Why a
re you moving?
Dr. Talbot Smith has been commuting over an hour each way for over ten years and decided Thurmont would allow him to continue to serve the local community while balancing personal time.  
6.  What changes can we expect at your new location?
We will focus on adult acute and chronic care at our new location.  This means we will treating ages 18 and older only.  In addition, we will no longer be completing routine annual gynecologic screenings, forwarding well woman examinations to gynecologic specialist for annual surveillance.  We hope to continue to provide the highest standard of quality care to all our patients.  

6.  Will the phone number be the same?  
We will continue to have the same phone number 717-334-8165 as well as a Maryland number 301-979-9636.
