DeKalb Medical Physicians Group Names New Medical Directors

Stephen Thomas, M.D., MBA, Vice President of DeKalb Medical Physicians Group (DMPG) has named three new Medical Directors. Raoul Mayer, M.D., Tina-Ann Thompson, M.D. and Solomon Tafari, M.D. will serve as the new DMPG Medical Directors.  Dr. Mayer will handle all DMPG surgical based practices, Dr. Thompson will be responsible for all outpatient primary care practices and Dr. Tafari will be accountable for the hospitalists and medical sub-specialties.

Dr. Duane Barclay held the position as DMPG’s Medical Director for many years. Dr. Barclay has decided to step down from the role and focus on his family and clinical practice at Stonecrest Primary Care. Dr. Barclay was instrumental in establishing many of the foundational accomplishments of the DMPG.  These foundation building blocks include the overall compensation model, establishment of DeKalb Medical’s Hospitalist Program, selection and building of the NextGen EMR, overseeing the physician leadership program and the beginnings of a clinical outcome based quality program.  Dr. Barclay will continue serving on the DeKalb Physician Hospital Organization (DPHO) and Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Board as well as DMPG’s Physician Board.
