Greater Pittsburgh’s Leading Family Medicine
Sick Visits & Acute Care
When you or a loved one fall ill, you want to be seen by a compassionate, patient-focused physician that will take the time to listen to your concerns. At emergency rooms and urgent care centers, copays are often high, waits are long, and you don’t get to speak to a doctor that has established a trusted relationship with you. We’re here to fix that.

We aim to build long-term relationships with patients of all ages, from childhood to the senior years. By getting to know you and your medical history and current lifestyle, we can identify potential causes for your illness, and come up with individualized treatment plans that will work for you.
You no longer have to search online for ‘primary care doctor near me’ when you become a patient with Bartolomucci Family Medicine. We are here to make sure you and your family get the compassionate, quality acute care you deserve. Request an in-office or telehealth appointment online, or call our office today!
