LVHN offers virtual family medicine visits

Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is now offering LVHN Virtual Family Medicine, which allows you the option of connecting with your family physician virtually or in person. Most care will be delivered virtually, with in-person appointments when necessary.

Marcy Haas, MD, family medicine physician with LVPG Family Medicine, is accepting new virtual primary care patients. She also will have availability at Health Center at Richland Township on Wednesdays to see people who need in-person care.

Any patient located in Pennsylvania can receive care at LVHN Virtual Family Medicine. You will need to have a MyLVHN account to access the virtual platform.

LVHN Virtual Family Medicine services offered virtually include:

  • Primary care with chronic disease management
  • Routine follow-ups (if you have home equipment such as a blood pressure cuff)
  • Anxiety and depression screenings and follow-up
  • Illness visits
  • Transition of care from hospital to home
  • Annual Medicare Wellness Visits (Note: If you need your first “Welcome to Medicare” visit, it must be done in person.)

LVHN Virtual Family Medicine may require some in-person visits. Services that must be completed in person include:

  • Physicals requiring paperwork (sports or school related)
  • Pediatric well-child visits (all ages)
  • Annual wellness visits
  • Vaccines
  • Women’s health (Pap test, GYN)
  • EKG
  • Procedures

LVHN Virtual Family Medicine patients can be seen for in-person appointments by Dr. Haas or at their preferred LVPG Family Medicine location.

“Virtual primary care allows people to get the care they need where they are. They can avoid taking off work and having to travel to go to the doctor. The only requirements are being able to log on to a device, having a MyLVHN account and being in Pennsylvania when you access virtual care,” Dr. Haas says.
