March 02, 2011

Physician members of the Pennsylvania Medical Society will answer questions and discuss medical concerns with local residents anonymously and free of charge on Wednesday, March 9, as part of the Medical Society’s public service program "Docs on Call." The program will air on WGAL from 5 until 6:30 pm that evening.

The state society’s “Docs on Call” programs draw on member physicians across Pennsylvania who donate their services to answer health-related questions and offer information on free- and low-cost health clinics to those without medical insurance or without access to personal physicians. While the doctors will provide guidance to callers, the phone sessions are not meant to replace office visits. Physicians answering the phones will not diagnose conditions or prescribe specific treatments.

Participating from Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center are Alison L. Chetlen, D.O., radiology and Devyani Chowdhury, M.D., Pediatric Cardiology.
