Local Residents Can "Meet Dr. Right" at the Peters Township Health + Wellness Pavilion

Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield

WILMINGTON, Del. (May 3, 2016) — Looking for a local doctor or health care facility that meets your needs and busy schedule can be a daunting task.

That's why Allegheny Health Network (AHN) and Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield are teaming up for a free "Meet Dr. Right" event on Wednesday, May 11 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Peters Township Health + Wellness Pavilion on Gallery Drive in McMurray.

Meet Dr. Right events are sponsored by Highmark and provide attendees with the opportunity to meet, mingle and make appointments with physicians from AHN and other community practices.

At the Peters Township Health + Wellness Pavilion event, local residents can talk with primary care doctors, OB-GYNs, pediatricians and medical specialists from AHN and the nearby community that are accepting new patients.

"We know families today are busy, and finding the right doctor for parents and children can be time consuming," said Marylou Buyse, M.D., M.S., senior medical director for Highmark. "Meet Dr. Right events can help make that process easier. Plus, this a great opportunity to take a tour of the Peters Township Health + Wellness Pavilion to see what services — including extended and weekend hours — it has to offer."

Attendees can also take advantage of free blood pressure and cholesterol screenings and meet with vendors offering vision, dental and home care services. Information on health insurance through Medicaid and CHIP will also be available.

"We encourage local residents to come out this event, even if they aren't Allegheny Health Network patients," said Dr. Buyse. "Learing more about local doctors and health care services in your community is a great way to spend an evening."

Individuals interested in attending the free event should visit the Meed Dr. Right web site or call 1-855-856-0319 to register in advance.
