Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield
PITTSBURGH (Aug. 19, 2016) Are you new to the area, had a change to your insurance or are just looking for a new doctor or health care facility?
If so, Sharon Regional Health System and Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield are teaming up for a free "Meet Dr. Right" event on Thursday, August 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Sharon Regional Diagnostic and Imaging Center on 2435 Garden Way in Hermitage.
Meet Dr. Right events are sponsored by Highmark and provide attendees with the opportunity to meet, mingle and make appointments with physicians from Sharon Regional Medical Group and additional members of the medical staff of Sharon Regional Health System.
"For individuals who might be new to the community or don't already have a physician or specialist that they see regularly, this format offers a very unique opportunity to meet outside of the clinical office setting and see who might be a good fit for their needs and the needs of their family members," stated Robert Morgenstern, M.D., chief medical officer for Sharon Regional Health System.
At the event, local residents can meet and talk with family practitioners, OB-GYNs, pediatricians, ophthalmologists and other medical specialists from 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. "We provide these free Meet Dr. Right events to help make that process easier."
Attendees can also take advantage of free blood pressure screenings, and refreshments will be available.
"We encourage local residents to come out to this event to learn more about local doctors and health care services in their community," said Dr. Buyse. "It's a great way to spend an evening."
Individuals interested in attending the free event should visit the Meet Dr. Right website or call 1-855-856-0319 to register in advance.
