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.

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.
