Lexington Family Practice Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Lexington Family Practice is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. From a two-provider practice in a small office in Lexington in 1976 to a network of 30 physicians in eight locations around the Midlands today, Lexington Family Practice has maintained a tradition of taking excellent care of generations of families.

Lexington Family Practice’s first office opened on Mineral Springs Road in Lexington in 1976. At the time, there were no traffic lights between the physician practice and Lexington Medical Center’s main campus in West Columbia. And the town of Lexington’s population was just over 1,000.

Robert Callis, MD, and Henry Martin Jr., MD, were two of the first three physicians at the practice. They had worked together during their medical residencies at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. At the time, the Midlands did not have a lot of young family physicians. But the need for them was clear as the doctors began to see dozens of patients each day.

From the beginning, Lexington Family Practice wanted to provide innovative health care to the people of Lexington. The practice was one of the first in the area to employ its own pharmacist; the first to offer weekend hours and weekend clinics for “urgent care” patients before urgent care centers ever existed; and it was one of the first family practice offices to offer echocardiograms. Later this year, Lexington Medical Center will begin offering a nurse practitioner fellowship at one of the Lexington Family Practice locations.

“We always wanted to stay a step ahead,” Dr. Martin said.

Their work also included medical care that other specialties often oversee today, including taking care of a high percentage of pediatric patients. They earned a solid reputation that led to expansions over the years with the practice opening locations in Irmo, Ballentine, Lake Murray, Northeast Columbia, Otarre Pointe, West Columbia and White Knoll.

“Each new practice has always had a seasoned, established physician,” Dr. Callis said. “We wanted to make sure that there was consistency at all locations.”

LFP40 LogoLexington Family Practice became part of Lexington Medical Center’s Network of Care in 1998. The practice has received national accolades for its successful management of high blood pressure and diabetes in patients.

Dr. Martin and Dr. Callis continue to work within the hospital’s network of care. Dr. Martin treats patients at Lexington Family Practice Otarre Pointe and Dr. Callis oversees Quality and Population Health in the hospital’s Physician Network. And Dr. Callis has a daughter who is a physician at the practice’s Ballentine location.
