Hi, everyone! I was wondering if you guys could give me a few recommendations for a primary care doctor. I've still been seeing my doctor in Jersey (even though I've lived in the valley for years), and now that my doctor is leaving the practice, I decided that it's about time to find a doctor in the valley. If you go to a PCP in either Bethlehem or Allentown, can you give me some names to look into? I'd like a female doctor who practices at an office that DOESN'T have hour-long waits (I know that's asking a lot, but it really bothers me when a dr's office wastes my time like that). I know there's a group of St Luke's physicians in Bethlehem... Any suggestions are appreciated!!! Thanks! :)

Judith (Richmond) Pryblick, D.O. - 610.437.7181 - I know her for years and she's a great doctor.  She and her husband, Gary Pryblick, D.O. are in that new building between Cali Burrito and the Veteran's Hospital on Hamilton Blvd.  Also, if you don't mind a male physician, Dr. Jose Garcia and Dr. Victor Powers are great, also Dr. Joseph Bognet and Dr. David Stein are all excellent doctors.  Good luck!!

Greetings...I go to Dr. Carol Myers D.O. - she is wonderful.  Patient, kind, she really listens to you when you talk to her.  She was wonderful when I visited her to talk about bariatric surgery. She is located at 4311 Easton Ave. Bethlehem, PA 18020  (610) 866-4450.  I know that at times she can be difficult to get in to see (very busy practice), and she has a physicians assistant (Donna Meneeley) that also helps out - she is wonderful too.  Very thorough.  She also practices with a couple of other people affiliated through St. Luke's... and I have never had to wait longer than 5-10 minutes to be seen when I go for my appointment.  Hope this is helpful - Tongue

I go to Wendy Rush-Spinosa. She's associated with Lehigh VAlley hospital though. Her one nurse (the phone nurse primarily), had the lap band done a little over 18 months ago. She was my inspiration. I have been going to Wendy since I was in 7th grade. I LOVE her. Her number is 610-437-0739. She's on Hamilton Blvd, near Cedar Crest. She's across from the Wachovia before you get to Cedar Crest.
