PHILADELPHIA HEALTH ASSOCIATES-ADULT MEDICINE
Welcome to Your Medical Home
WE ARE OPENED UP FOR IN-PERSON VISITS
We take Precautionary Measures Seriously!
Now that our local area is re-opening more, we are starting to have selective patients come in to the office for care. We do not take walk-ins and we encourage all patients who are ill to call the office first. We are taking steps to keep patients and staff safe, including requiring social distancing, mask wearing of facial covering and sanitizing regularly. If you have respiratory symptoms, please contact the office first before coming in.
Currently, we are seeing patients for physicals, pre-surgical clearance, health risk assessments for our elderly population, and post-hospital discharge. We only allow the patient in the exam room unless the patient requires assistance of the caregiver who comes along.
Most of the other appointments are by telehealth, unless it is determined that there must be an in-person evaluation. Please utilized our patient portal system and telemedicine visits.
TELEVISITS ARE NOW AVAILABLE
Delivering the Care You Need Remotely
TELEHEALTH VISITS: In light of COVID-19 pandemic, major insurance companies, including Medicare, have made a special exception for "Telehealth visits" for at least the next couple of months to promote safety and well-being of their patients and healthcare workers.

HEALTH RISK ASSESSMENT FOR OUR ELDER PATIENTS
The Care You Deserve
At least once a year we perform health risk assessment on our elderly patients in order to identify needs and health risks. We examine physical, emotional and mental well-being, looking at cognitive decline, fall risk and social needs.
Helping You Get Healthy
We provide a holistic approach to medical management. We strive to simplify regimen, when possible, taking in consideration insurance coverage, cost and other barriers to access to prescribe medication. We believe that lifestyle modification should always be part of a comprehensive care plan.
