|Welcome to our practice. We appreciate you taking the time to consider our practice of Internal Medicine to serve your medical needs. Our objective is to provide you with the very best care possible and cost effective medical and personal attention.|
We here at Internists of Central Pa function as a Medical Home practice. What that means is we take a team based approach to providing health care services. A partnership develops between the patient, his or her primary clinician, and a health care team to work with you to meet all of your health care needs. We provide education and tools to help manage your health.
You can communicate with a Medical Home team member (which is the doctor and or his phone attendant) anytime during normal business hours. We have implemented a Web-based computer system that will allow you to electronically communicate with your healthcare team. This will allow you to receive clinical advice on your health maintenance. We will provide you with more information on how to enroll at your first appointment with us. You can contact your medical home team directly to arrange an appointment or to discuss your healthcare needs by calling 717-774-1366 Monday- Friday (except holidays) between the hours of 8:00 am 4:00pm. Outside of normal business hours, for urgent matters you may call 717-774-1366 and an on-call provider will call you back. Please continue to call 911 for all emergencies. It will be necessary for you to let the Medical Home team know if you are seen by any other provider. This will allow us to continue to coordinate your healthcare needs.
An Internist is a medical specialist with extended training in the diagnosis of disease and the treatment of nonsurgical disease. Internists gain proficiency only after years of training beyond those necessary for their medical degree. This longer training provides extensive knowledge and expertise in the details and complications of disease. Our practice specializes in internal Medicine and follows evidence based guidelines to create individual care plans. We limit our patients to older the 15 years of age, except on special referral from other physicians because of particular subspecialty problems. We view our practice as a health care partnership with important participatory roles for you as a patient, as well as for physicians, nurses, laboratory personnel, and all other office staff.
Each physician cares for his or her own patients to the maximum extent possible. We collaborate with other clinician by obtaining and sharing medical information with hospitals, urgent care centers and other providers. However, appointments for emergencies or urgent problems may sometimes have to be made with physician’s who have an open appointment on a given day. One physician is “on call’ for emergencies after hours and on the weekend.
