Our Services

Geriatric Care

Comprehensive geriatric medical care can help address the physical, psychological, and social impairment that usually accompanies complex medical conditions in older patients.

This is accomplished through a personalized treatment plan that is updated as the patient’s condition changes and coordination among all caregivers and family members to ensure continuity of care.

Throughout the duration of care there is ongoing monitoring of the patient’s condition, referral to palliative care if so indicated, and referral to appropriate agencies upon discharge from healthcare institutions.

When I call them for a Peer to Peer review they treat me very respectfully and listen very intently to what I have to say about the residents case.

Utilization Review, Brighton Rehabilitation & Wellness Center

Personal Care Medical Associates (PCMA) are the finest group of dedicated physicians and medical practitioners in Western Pennsylvania. Dr. Thimons and his group are very compassionate and caring individuals and they are true advocates for our nursing home residents. PCMA goes above and beyond in all aspects of care. I am proud to be associated with such a fine group of professionals in healthcare and to have Dr. Thimons and Dr. Mantine as our Medical Directors at Brighton Rehabilitation and Wellness Center.

The PCMA Doctors and Nurse Practitioners are so attentive to their patients. They are all very quick to address patient and family needs. If I need to talk to them about a patient, they are always available.
