In order to keep all patients safe within our primary care clinics and limit risk of potential exposure to COVID-19, we now have three testing sites to serve FPC patients who meet the criteria for screening.
FPC patients who meet the criteria for COVID-19 testing will be directed to one of these sites which are located in Williamsport, Selinsgrove and Enola.
Before being referred to a test site, you may be asked to schedule a Telemedicine visit, which is a video connection between you and your FPC Provider, in order to better determine the best plan of action based on your symptoms.
Due to the limited amount of testing kits available, we regret that we can only provide this service to established patients of Family Practice Center, PC at this time.
Thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented circumstances.
The FPC Sleep Center at our Lewisburg location at 131 JPM Road will not be performing overnight sleep studies from now until April 6, 2020. Further details to follow if circumstances require continued deferment of overnight sleep studies after that time.
The FPC Sleep Center will remain open for daytime appointments and phone calls. We can be reached at (570)768-4441.
