POTTSVILLE, Pa. – Effective Jan. 3, Joseph Puzzi, M.D., and his otolaryngology practice will join Geisinger. The practice — renamed Geisinger Ear, Nose and Throat Pottsville — will remain at 100 Schuylkill Plaza, Suite 205, and will continue to accept most major insurance plans.

“Dr. Puzzi and his team have an excellent reputation in the community,” said Dr. Kenneth Altman, department chair of otolaryngology at Geisinger. “As we continue to look for ways to expand our services, this enables us to provide care to those in the Pottsville area and beyond.”
