Highmark sponsors "Meet Dr. Right" event at Wexford Health + Wellness Pavilion Nov. 2

PITTSBURGH (Oct. 19, 2017) — Your doctor just retired. Your company will soon be offering a new insurance plan. Or maybe you just moved to the area. All reasons why you might be looking for a new doctor.

But finding a new doctor doesn't have to be stressful. Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield is teaming up with Allegheny Health Network (AHN) to offer a free "Meet Dr. Right" event on Thursday, Nov. 2 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Wexford Health + Wellness Pavilion, located at 12311 Perry Highway in Wexford. Parking is free.

Meet Dr. Right events provide attendees with the opportunity to meet, mingle, and make appointments with doctors and other health care professionals from AHN and local community practices.

PCPs, OB-GYNs, surgeons and other medical specialists from AHN and the nearby community are scheduled to attend — and are all accepting new patients.

"Your doctor should serve as your partner in health and be a trusted medical confidant, someone who knows you and understands your unique medical history," said Charles DeShazer, M.D., chief medical officer for Highmark. "That's why we provide these free Meet Dr. Right events — to help individuals meet and get to know the right doctor, someone who can help better coordinate your care."

Attendees can also take advantage of free health screenings and meet with health-related vendors offering services locally. Free refreshments will also be served.

Individuals interested in attending the free event should visit www.meet-dr-right.com or call 1-855-856-0319 to register in advance. A list of participating physicians and information about each doctor is also available on www.meet-dr-right.com.
