Geisinger Convenient Care Mount Carmel will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The location will offer X-ray and laboratory services. Convenient Care clinics are the best place to go for minor health issues that can be resolved in a single visit. These include cold and flu symptoms, allergies, earaches, tick removal, sprains and minor cuts.
The location will also be home to a new primary care office. Matthew Kraynak, D.O., and Debra Kaleta, PA-C, are joining Geisinger and will become members of Geisinger’s primary care network. Primary care physicians are the gateway to health care. Focused on preventive care and chronic disease management, primary care is home base for managing your health. Dr. Kraynak has been practicing medicine in the Mount Carmel and Kulpmont area for decades.
“The addition of Dr. Kraynak and the addition of a Convenient Care walk-in clinic to the Mount Carmel area is a significant benefit for community members looking for health care services closer to home,” said Suzy Kobylinski, M.D., chair of Geisinger community medicine. “The addition of these services to our expanding network helps make health care easier for our neighbors in the community.”
