SCRANTON, Pa. – Steven Sluck, D.O., a family medicine physician, has joined the Geisinger 65 Forward Health Center team in Scranton. Geisinger 65 Forward is a health care program designed exclusively for people ages 65 and over with Geisinger Gold insurance where patients get longer appointments, more on-site health services and social, educational and wellness activities. 

Dr. Sluck is a board-certified physician who specializes in family medicine. He earned his medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency through the Crozer Keystone Family Medicine Residency Program in Springfield, Pa.

Dr. Sluck joins 65 Forward after nearly a decade of treating patients at Geisinger Mount Pleasant. He has been with Geisinger since 2014. Through his years as a physician in family medicine, he has been delivering primary care services for children, adults, and seniors.

“After working with patients of all ages, I am excited to start this new journey working exclusively with our senior population at 65 Forward in Scranton,” said Dr. Sluck. “What makes this program so different is the relationships I can build with those I care for — patients get longer appointment times, and I can better help them achieve their specific wellness goals, keeping them young and healthy. This is something special specifically with 65 Forward that’s different from any other program, and I’m glad to be a part of it.”

Dr. Sluck is accepting new patients. To schedule an appointment with him, schedule a tour of the facility or to learn more about Geisinger 65 Forward, call 570-644-6198 or visit geisinger.org/patient-care/65-forward.
