Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

SHAMOKIN DAM, Pa. – Christopher Lee, M.D., has joined the Geisinger 65 Forward Health Center team in central Pennsylvania as the third clinician at Geisinger 65 Forward Shamokin Dam. Geisinger 65 Forward is a health care program designed exclusively for people age 65 and over where patients get longer appointments, more on-site health services and social, educational and wellness activities. 

Dr. Lee earned his medical degree at the Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia after completing his undergraduate studies in biology at Kings College in Wilkes-Barre and master’s degree studies in population biology from Clarion University of Pennsylvania. He completed his family medicine residency at Williamsport Family Medicine. Prior to joining Geisinger, Dr. Lee was a family medicine physician in Lewisburg and primary care physician for local state and federal agencies.

“As a primary care doctor, I enjoy being able to provide personalized one-on-one care for my patients to help them live their healthiest lives,” said Dr. Lee. “Having access to a dietitian, a wellness coordinator, an exercise coordinator and pharmacist all right here at 65 Forward really helps to make care easy and maximize our patient’s health.”

Dr. Lee, who is board certified in family medicine, is accepting new patients for Geisinger 65 Forward Shamokin Dam. He joins Dr. J. Gary Kemberling and Dr. Blake Garmon at the location.  For more information about the program, call 570-844-7970 or to learn more.
