In 1989, Francis Mezzadri, MD, cofounded the practice that grew into Quaker Medical Associates, with a vision to create a practice that would provide the highest quality primary care to WNY families. Over the years, other talented physicians joined the practice and added to its reputation of quality and excellence. Since Dr. Mezzadri retired from the practice in early 2018, Quaker Medical’s physician owners continue to value evidence based medical care of you, their patient, over profits, and have chosen to remain an independent physicians’ practice rather than be acquired by a larger health care organization.
