Routine Wellness Visits
Scheduling routine wellness visits are important for your health. During these visits we can discuss any concerns you have about your health, as well as check for any developing issues or conditions that need to be addressed. Even if you feel fine, going to the doctor regularly can help us catch conditions that haven’t presented any symptoms yet.
Emergency Medical Care
If you have a life-threatening emergency, you should call 911 or go the nearest emergency room. However, if you have a sudden, non-life-threatening illness or injury that needs to be addressed, give us a call right away at 814-443-3637 and we will get you in!
Custodial/Nursing Home Care
If you struggle with your daily routine tasks due to a mental or physical incapacity, we can assist you with activities such as dressing, bathing, and completing household chores. You can have peace of mind of knowing that someone is there to take care of you and keep you safe.
At our practice, we can perform minor surgeries, such as removing skin growths, treating leg pains, addressing burns and performing biopsies.
Osteopathy is the practice of, in addition to modern medical practice, using hands-on, manual treatments to diagnose and alleviate symptoms and conditions and to repair restrictions in the body structure. Osteopathy addresses the muscles, joints and spine and can be used to treat fibromyalgia, headaches, arthritis and more, as well as discomfort due to pregnancy. Osteopathic manipulation treatments can improve one’s circulation, sleep, nervous system, and other bodily functions.
