PAMED Physician Volunteers Make ‘Docs on Call’ Events in Erie and Lancaster a Success

Last Updated: May 23, 2019

Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) physicians continued the annual tradition of sharing health guidance with their communities through “Docs on Call” public service TV programs.

Viewers were able to call and speak with physicians anonymously. PAMED physicians answered hundreds of calls and discussed medical concerns with callers. They also shared their expertise in interviews on several current health care topics.

Questions from viewers focused on topics such as pain management and diabetes care.

PAMED thanks the physicians below for participating in Docs on Call this year!
