08/19/2016 - LEXINGTON INTERNAL MEDICAL CARE ANNOUNCES NEW NURSE PRACTITIONER

Lexington Internal Medical Care and Dr. Victor Farrah announce the addition of a new staff member to one of Lexington’s few private medical practices. Sharon Heyn, RN, FNP-C, has recently assumed the role of nurse practitioner with Farrah. She will work with patients to treat health conditions and offer an added emphasis on disease prevention, health management and whole body health. 

“We’re delighted to have Sharon with us,” said Farrah. “Her knowledge and abilities allow us to see acute and sick patients sooner, and to see new patients at more convenient times. She’s a good listener, she’s very thorough and a team player. She brings a sense of compassion and confidence to this role that we’re really excited about.”

The addition of a nurse practitioner will also allow Farrah a chance to balance his time between his private practice and his duties with other medical centers in town. Farrah currently serves as chief of staff at Wake Forest Baptist Health Lexington Medical Center and director of medicine at Lexington Health Care Center. He also works with the Wound Care Center and Hyperbaric Center of Wake Forest Baptist Health Lexington Medical Center.

“I’m thrilled to be working alongside Dr. Farrah in a family-owned practice here in Lexington,” said Heyn. “I believe education is key to caring for oneself, and I try to educate my patients on how to do that. I focus on taking care of the whole person.”

Originally from Asheboro, Heyn graduated from Winston-Salem State University in 2016 as a family nurse practitioner. Prior to joining Lexington Internal Medical Care, Heyn worked for Wake Forest Baptist Health Lexington Medical Center as a discharge nurse, a role she took on in 2003. She has experience as a staff nurse and case manager, and in quality improvement.

 

05/27/2011 - We are not a pain clinic

In light of the recent loss of physicians in the Lexington area, we would like to make it clear that we are not a pain clinic. This means we do not write continous amounts of narcotics, benzodiazipines, and other controlled substances for chronic pain issues in the ambulatory setting.  We strive to provide quality compassionate care to our patients but we are not pain specialists.  For new patients looking for a new provider we feel it is important that patients know this ahead of time to avoid dissatisfaction.

 

10/29/2007 - New Beginnings

It was on October 29th, 2007, that Dr. Farrah first opened the doors of Lexington Internal Medical Care. There have been several successful medical practices throughout the years at this location starting with Dr. Bingham and including Dr. Hunter Strader, Dr. Bob Team, and Dr. Terry Arnold.

Dr. Farrah also serves as the Medical Director of two local nursing homes: Lexington Health Care and Abbotts Creek, a Sunbridge facility. You can find him making weekly rounds these nursing facilities.

In April of 2011, Dr. Farrah started helping patients at the Wound Care Center of Lexington Memorial Hospital, at which time we extended our office hours to 5:00 on Friday afternoons.
