Gaston Medical Partners

We have created a new independent medical practice to serve our neighbors throughout Gaston County, North Carolina. The physicians of Gaston Medical Partners chose to move away from a large health network in order to focus on what is most important – you, the patient.

We are proud to be an independent practice, which allows us to provide exceptional care while reducing costs and eliminating bureaucracy.

Our team of physicians include:

  • Jessica Kafer, MD
  • David Locklear, MD
  • Michael McCartney, MD
  • Gregory O’Leary, MD
  • Derek Reed, DO
  • Caroline Stephens, MD
  • Brian Wysong, MD

Our office location is 924 Cox Road, Gastonia, NC, and will open on December 2, 2019.
