A long time grumbling point for patients has always been getting a doctor’s appointment scheduled, according to Mark Kissinger, executive director of Genesis Medical Associates, Inc., the largest still independent primary care physician practice serving the Greater North Hills.
“We have taken the necessary steps through technology to make same day appointments easy,” said Kissinger.
Genesis patients, he noted, can simply go on the new Genesis app and schedule their appointments. No muss, no fuss. They also have the option of just walking in at our new Wexford office located at the Allegheny Health Network Medical Pavilion on Perry Highway. Now, only in its second month of operation, we been delighted with the initial patient response. All Genesis physician offices also have same day appointment hours.”
“Any time you can make things easier for the patient, especially something as simple as scheduling an appointment, you take a lot of stress out of the equation,” said Kissinger.
With 11 offices stretching north from the city of Pittsburgh to Cranberry Township, Genesis Medical Associates, Inc. has also been recognized as a Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO) as a result of its joint venture with Keystone Clinical Partners.
“That ACO contract with Medicare,” he said, “along with the recognition of Genesis as a Patient Centered Medical Home demonstrates the high quality of care with all our physician offices.”
