LEXINGTON, KY. – 11/1/2023 – Dermatology Associates of Kentucky (DAK) and Lexington Clinic are pleased to announce a partnership to become a leading dermatology group practice in Central Kentucky.
“We’re very excited to welcome Dermatology Associates of Kentucky (DAK) as a part of Lexington Clinic. In addition to expanding our care to patients in the communities we serve, we’ll also increase our collective capabilities with some of the foremost thought leaders in dermatology,” said Dr. Stephen J. Behnke, CEO of Lexington Clinic.
The newly combined DAK and Lexington Clinic Dermatology group now includes 10 board-certified dermatologists and 10 providers who practice in five locations across the Bluegrass, mainly Lexington, Frankfort, Mount Sterling, and Somerset.
“We are excited to join Lexington Clinic as both the organizations are aligned in their commitment and focus on providing high quality patient care. Our physicians and providers will also be able to share knowledge and actively learn from one another, which will improve clinical outcomes,” said Ryan Fischer, M.D. at DAK.
This partnership should have little to no impact on current DAK patients, as they will not see any difference in how the multi-site practice operates. “The providers will stay in their same locations as will the nursing staff for each physician/provider. The phone numbers and the website will also stay the same to ensure uninterrupted patient access to quality care,” said Dr. Fischer.
