New Office at St. Mary Medical Center!

Ktarte Articles, Locations

Saint Marys Campus map.

Meadowbrook Neurology Group is proud to announce our new partnership with St. Mary Medical Center – a very well-respected hospital with one of the most comprehensive and sophisticated neurosciences centers in the region.  We will be providing an array of neurological services, including EMG (Electromyogram) tests at this new location.

More Convenience for Many Patients

In addition to providing follow-up neurological services for the hospital’s patients, most of our physicians will now be available to see current patients at this new office by appointment.  Our electronic medical records can be accessed from all of our offices, so our patients will continue to have consistent, hassle-free, well-documented care at any location they choose.

St. Mary is conveniently located, especially for our patients who live or work in the lower Bucks County area.  Situated at 1201 Newtown-Langhorne Road, the hospital is easy to reach from major freeways, and parking is free for patients.  Here are printable directions from our other offices and major freeways.

We carefully selected our new office to ensure easy access for patients with limited mobility.  It is close to the elevator on the 2nd floor of the original Medical Office Building, recently named the Franciscan Medical Building.  St. Mary has another, newly constructed Medical Office Building called the St. Clare Medical Office Building, but the Franciscan Medical Office Building is the first building encountered when approaching from the main parking lot.

Our Physicians at the New Office

Dr. Shpigel will practice in-hospital as the Neuro-Hospitalist at St. Mary throughout the week, and will be on-call for the St. Mary stroke team.  Other physicians will be in-office on a rotating schedule, and on-call nights and weekends for the stroke team. Dr. Natter will be practicing in the new office 2 days per week, and Dr. Khoury and Dr. Kubersky will see patients in the new office 1 day per week.  Physician Assistants Claire Austin MSPA-C, MSCS and Vicki Boruta, PA-C will be in-office at St. Mary on Thursdays and Fridays.

To schedule an appointment with any of these neurologists at St. Mary, simply call the main line, 215-938-7730, and request the office at St. Mary for your visit.

Our Warminster Office Closes Soon

With the opening of our new office at St. Mary will come the closing of our old office at 225 Newtown Road in Warminster, at the end of this month.  While we wish we could continue to offer services at the Warminster Campus location, our Byberry office at 3501 Masons Mill Road, Suite 502 is just a quick 5-minute drive away.  We hope that the addition of our new St. Mary office will help offset the additional influx to our Byberry office due to this necessary office closure.

If you have an appointment scheduled at the Warminster office for anytime after June 30, 2013, please expect a phone call from us to reschedule at a different office.
