Dr. John Yindra to Step Down from MMA Committee for Physician Quality

Recognizing John Yindra, M.D. for Service to MMA’s Committee for Physician Quality

After co-chairing the Maine Medical Association’s Committee for Physician Quality (CPQ) for the past several years, Dr. Yindra has decided to wind down from professional activities with an eye toward fully retiring. 

He co-chaired the CPQ with Erik Steele, DO. The CPQ provides oversight to MMA’s External Peer Review and Office Based Quality Improvement Programs.

He began his work with the CPQ when he returned from a brief retirement to DFD Russell Medical Center as a staff physician at its Monmouth location four days a week.  Previously, he served in medical director and physician roles at DFD Russell for more than 25 years.  He also served as Chief Medical Officer at Community Health Options, an ACA COOP plan based in Lewiston. He also has served as Medical Director of the Central and Western Maine Physician Hospital Organization and was Associate Director of Maine Health Physician Hospital Organization. In this role, Dr. Yindra was instrumental in efforts to spread the Patient Centered Medical Home model to the organization’s primary care physicians. He also worked in geriatrics at Maine Medical Center.

Dr. Yindra is concluding a long and successful career during which he has earned the respect and admiration of both colleagues and patients. 

Dr. Yindra earned his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College. He is board certified in family medicine with added certification in geriatric medicine.
