"Our newest member of the Access team, our refugee from the big city, our “PA from PA” Sarah Ferrese has a long history of running away from her problems. And contrary to what our mothers taught us, this time, for the first time, it actually paid off! In February she transitioned from the throes of a high-paced urgent care practice in “cold, grey and lonely” Pittsburgh to the more relaxed pace interactive and warm environment of Access Healthcare in the GREATEST CITY IN THE WORLD! We’re not sure how Sarah found us or how we found her but her clinical experience, her calm disposition and her easy-going affect make her a perfect addition to our team. Previous and less successful attempts to run away have brought her to West Virginia for college, to Bali for scuba diving and to Japan where she taught English for a year."
"The name Access was derived from the expressed needs of patients towards the accessibility of their physician. We will do everything in our ability to promptly meet the healthcare needs of our patients, whether it is by telephone, e-mail, traditional office visits, after-hours care, or house calls. In keeping with our efforts to return to a more simplistic and traditional practice model, we will be limiting the size of our family of patients. By reducing our exposure we hope to increase our availability, eliminate long waits in the office and unnecessary visits to the emergency room. Most importantly, Access Heathcare works only for you, the patient; we do not contract with any outside parties that influence the outcome of your healthcare. We endeavor to keep the cost of medical care affordable and, more importantly, known to our patients upfront. As a by-product of this improvement in access, we hope to reunite the physician and patient in a more simplified setting, allowing us the opportunity to deliver a higher quality of care. To facilitate this mission, we have several affordable service levels from which to choose."
