AHN logo copyWouldn’t it be nice to shop for a doctor? Chat with them, ask questions, and get a feel for how they would relate to you as a patient? Thanks to an innovative community event from Highmark Inc., now you can.

Prospective patients will be able to talk with primary care physicians, obstetricians and gynecologists, pediatricians, and numerous Allegheny Health Network (AHN) and nearby community specialists in a casual setting.  And if you find the right match, you can even schedule an appointment on the spot. Plus there will be healthy hors d’oeuvres and light beverages.AHN photo

“It’s important to have a physician who knows and understands your medical history,” said Ron Andro, president and CEO of West Penn Hospital. “This event will provide guests the opportunity to meet, mingle and make appointments with physicians.”

“It’s great to get to know your doctor before you’re only wearing a paper gown,” said Stephanie Ausefski, a Highmark marketing strategist. “This is a chance to talk on a personal level to see if the doctor is a good fit.’’

Highmark’s My Care Navigators will also be available to answer any questions you may have about your health insurance.

“Meet Dr. Right” will take place at West Penn Hospital on October 20, 2015 from 5:00-7:30 p.m.For more information or to register for this free event, call 1.855.856.0319 or visit  There will be free validated parking in the Millvale Avenue Parking Garage.
