New Pulmonary Medicine Practice Opens in Schuylkill County

Lehigh Valley Physician Group (LVPG)–Schuylkill has introduced a new, much needed medical practice to Schuylkill County.

LVPG Pulmonary Medicine–Pottsville is now accepting patients at their 106 Claude A. Lord Boulevard facility. Patients can call 888-402-LVHN (5846) for scheduling. The practice is comprised of fellowship-trained physicians Anthony Flaim, DO, and Brian Miller, DO, both board-certified in internal and pulmonary medicine.
