Cheering you on to health and wellness

You are complex, one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable. You need someone to watch over every precious part of you – like they do at a Virtua Medical Home. Mario Maffei, MD, Virtua family practice physician, explains: “A medical home is not a place – but a way to practice medicine that provides patients with a one-stop clinical resource that considers their whole health picture, inside and out. A Virtua Medical Home clinical team includes a physician, nurses and technicians who understand your unique health profile. They help you set health goals and assist you in reaching them.”

To find a medical home and a Virtua family physician who practices this new approach to health care, call 1-855-VIRTUA-8.


Your eyes tell tales.

They reveal your overall health. Symptoms of diabetes and coronary artery disease are often seen here first.


Check your BP, blood and sugar.
Checking blood pressure, blood counts and blood sugar at frequent intervals helps prevent illness.


Get your best shot.
Adults need follow-up tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis every 10 years, along with immunizations for hepatitis and pneumonia. Also ask if you need a shingles vaccine.


A gentle reminder at age 50.
Most adults need their first colonoscopy to screen for colon cancer at this age. Colon cancer caught early is curable. Have a family history? You may need one sooner. Talk to your care provider.


We meet your family.
Their history of high cholesterol, heart disease, arthritis, cancer, and even panic attacks may make you more susceptible. Once we know, we’ll work to prevent them.
