Pennsylvania Dermatology Partners expands to Lewisburg
Lewisburg — Pennsylvania Dermatology Partners is excited to announce they’ll be expanding to serve the community of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.
They’ve acquired the practice of Dr. Robert Long, located at 3 Hospital Drive, #114 in Lewisburg, who has announced he’ll be retiring after practicing dermatology in the area for 40 years.
Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Richard Cordova and nurse practitioner, Brandi LaFountain will be continuing care for patients’ dermatologic needs and are looking forward to serving the community of Lewisburg. Patients can expect to receive the same excellent care from our team that they’ve received from Long in the past.
The team is currently accepting new patient appointments and has been working together with Long to ensure a smooth transition for his patients.
Cordova is a board-certified dermatologist who completed his Osteopathic Internship and Family Practice residency at St. Luke’s Hospital in Allentown, where he was awarded Intern of the Year in 1999 and Chief Resident of the Family Practice Program in 2001. After completing his residency, he entered into a Dermatology Fellowship in Hazelton, which resulted in board certification in 2007.
Cordova’s philosophy has always been that family comes first and he brings this concept into his approach to medicine as well. Treating the whole patient and not just the disease is the cornerstone of his medical practice.
He prides himself on educating the patient on the nature of their medical condition and believes a visit to the doctor should be more than just receiving a prescription. He is also very active in training medical students and residents and tries to instill a whole patient approach to these students.
Brandi LaFountain is board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and is a member of the National Academy of Dermatology Nurse Practitioners as well as the Society of Dermatology Physicians Assistants.
Brandi obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Alvernia University and worked as a registered nurse for more than 10 years before continuing her education at Widener University. There she pursued a Master’s of Science degree with a focus on family health. She is licensed in the state of Pennsylvania.
Brandi always knew she wanted to take care of others and sought a career in the medical field. She finds joy in helping others and has found her passion in helping patients achieve healthy, beautiful skin.
She believes that the key to helping patients reach their healthy skin goals is to have effective communication. This includes listening to each patient’s concerns and working toward a solution that works best for the individual.
