Peggy Sims Relocating

Peggy will be relocating to Pittsburgh in December in order to be within a closer distance to her family. This has been a difficult decision for Peggy as she truly cares about her patients and has enjoyed being part of the OAR work family for over five years. We will miss Peggy and wish her the very best in her new endeavors!

OAR has been searching for a provider to replace Peggy that will offer patients the same type of care and attention, as well as, have extensive experience in Orthopaedics. We are pleased to announce that we have hired Samuel Bean, Nurse PR actioner to start November 30th. Sam has worked for over seventeen years as a Nurse PR actioner, specializing in Orthopaedics. Prior to that, he worked as Director of the Emergency Department and also managed the Operating Room at a local Community Hospital. Sam’s medical experience in Orthopaedics, along with his sense of care and respect has earned him an excellent reputation with his current patients, along with being given the honor to be nominated for the Finger Lakes Nurse of Distinction award.

To help provide convenience for our patients, upcoming appointments that were previously scheduled with Peggy Sims have been changed to list Sam Bean as the provider. There is no change in the appointment day, time or location.
