About Our New Website
If you’re like two-thirds of Americans, you use the Internet regularly to find health information. That’s why Lehigh Valley Health Network launched the new lvhn.org. It’s far different than your standard health care website. It's a resource for everyone in our community designed to help you through your life, no matter where you are in your journey. Use it to:
Find the right doctor.
The green “Find a Doctor” button allows you to view many doctor profiles so you can compare and peruse. These profiles help you evaluate expertise and find a doctor with whom you can build a trusting relationship. You can find a doctor who meets your personal needs (location, specialty, gender, office hours and languages spoken).
Check your symptoms.
If you’re not feeling well, use the Symptom Checker tool to find what’s ailing you, and learn if it really can “wait until morning.”
Take charge of your health.
Get tips for how to prepare for your appointment and your conversation with your doctor. Learn about the health classes, support groups and programs available for you. Find out how rehabilitation services, nutrition services and tobacco treatment can help you. And visit our wellness section for articles, recipes, health quizzes and assessment tools you can use. (It’s also where you’ll find the latest Healthy You magazine.)
