YORK-A new medical practice has opened in York County.

CountyMed DPC, Yorktown’s first direct primary care office, opened its doors on June 1 with a ribbon cutting event. CountyMed aims to be today’s version of a family-friendly, neighborhood, small-town doctor.

The new practice offers concierge medicine and provides services in primary care and urgent care needs as well as telemedicine appointments. Monthly memberships are available.

CountyMed is owned and operated by Dr. Phi Lam, a board-certified physician with more than 15 years of medical experience in primary and urgent care.

“My goal for opening CountyMed DPC is to regain focus on the patient-doctor relationship,” said Lam. “Providing better care for fewer patients is the way medicine works best. The role of a primary care physician was always meant to encompass as much knowledge about each individual patient.”

CountyMed’s focus will be on prevention and early detection, and Lam will work with patients to develop individual wellness plans using the newest innovations in medical care.

Eventually, Lam would like to expand CountyMed’s services to include the medical spa fields of Botox, derm fillers, IV infusion therapy, and hormone replacement therapy if interest and popularity grows in these areas.

“I am honored to serve the local community, and I look forward to truly making a difference in the lives of my patients,” said Lam.

CountyMed is available for same day and next day appointments. The new business is located at 4600 George Washington Memorial Highway.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
