July 24, 2023
MARLTON, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Consensus Health, a leading physician-owned and -governed medical group comprised of more than 150 New Jersey-based independent primary care providers and specialty doctors across more than 60 locations, announced today the expansion of its network.
The new additions include:
- Consensus Health Primary Care Laurel Avenue (Formerly sole practitioner) – Dr. Robert DeMartin, Specializing in Internal Medicine
1330 Laurel Avenue, Suite 201
Sea Girt, NJ 08750
- Consensus Health Primary Care Med-Care (Formerly Med-Care) – Specializing in Family Medicine
245 Park Avenue

- Consensus Health Primary Care Morris Medical Associates (Formerly Morris Medical Associates) – Specializing in Internal Medicine
3799 U.S. 46 E., Suite 209

- Consensus Health Primary Care Stelton (Formerly sole practitioner) – Dr. Yeow Tong, Specializing in Internal Medicine

Piscataway, NJ 08854
- Consensus Health Primary Care Voorhees (Formerly sole practitioner) – Dr. Stephen Raphael, Specializing in Internal Medicine
303 County Route 561
Voorhees, NJ 08043
In the case of these five additions, physicians chose to join Consensus Health based on the many benefits they receive from being part of a larger medical group model. These advantages include, but are not limited to, participating in value-based programs to demonstrate the benefits of improving population health outcomes; gaining access to various administrative support services; utilizing various technology platforms and enhanced turn-key practice processes; and, gaining a greater voice when dealing with contracting across many areas of the business. Furthermore, and perhaps most importantly, being part of Consensus Health Medical Group affords member physicians clinical autonomy. This is of major importance to independent physicians as the key reason they practice autonomously is to ensure they retain their abilities to focus on the patient and make the best decisions with regard to their care plans.
“We welcome these independent practitioners to our growing network. We recognize that the role of the independent physician within today’s rapidly changing healthcare arena has severely diminished. Consensus Health is preserving their independence by empowering physicians to determine and dictate the care they deliver,” said Michael Lovett, Consensus Health president and chief operating officer.
“At Consensus Health, clinical autonomy is ingrained in our operating model since the medical group is physician-owned and -governed. Physicians in our network are provided the tools they need and are empowered to make the best choices on behalf of their patients. In this way, all stakeholders — physicians, patients, payors and the overall medical group — stand to benefit. We look forward to serving more patients with the additional talents of our new member physicians,” Lovett concluded.
