Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
As a leading geriatric house call practice in the Philadelphia region, Dr. Pluta and her team of medical associates are now expanding into lower Bucks County and Northeast Philadelphia.
“I am excited to have my colleague Dr. Bridget Walker join the practice,” says Dr. Christine Pluta, medical director of Schuylkill Medical Associates. “She is an excellent physician and brings many years of house call experience to the practice,” says Dr. Pluta. “We can now provide comprehensive primary medical care to our homebound patients in Northeast Philadelphia and the lower Bucks County region.”
Homebound patients will benefit from Schuylkill Medical Associates if it is a hardship for them to get to their primary doctor due to medical issues. SMA physicians provide chronic disease management, pain management, preventative care, end of life care, and ongoing communication with families and nursing.
“We use mobile lab and radiology services that come to the home and can also provide podiatry and optometry services in the home. And if needed, SMA provides a certified wound care specialist to provide wound care within the home,” says Dr. Pluta.
