Announcement for
Dr. Stephen Fuentes' Patients

Dr. Stephen Fuentes has resigned from Flora Medical Clinic as of September 9, 2022 because of a family medical emergency.  It is not easy for us to lose such a kind and caring doctor, but we wish him all the best for his family.  


We want to assure you that Flora Medical will continue to be your medical home and we have a plan to do that.  Our Flora Medical team is expanding with the addition of Felice Howard, MD,  who will join us on December 1.   


  • If you have an urgent need, please call us and Dr. Kolte and her team will be available to see you.  

  • If you already have an appointment scheduled with Dr. Fuentes, our staff will be reaching out to discuss your provider and scheduling options as we get closer to your appointment. We will try to match your day and time whenever possible, especially for those scheduled after October 10th.  


Thank you for your understanding as we work through this transition. We are here for you.  If you feel that seeing  Dr. Kolte’s team or Dr. Howard will not be the right fit for you, please reach out to transfer your medical records to a practice of your choice. You can contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers. 



Dr. Bharati Kolte and the Flora Medical Team
