As a longstanding family practice in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh, Heyl Family Practice, a Genesis Medical Associates office, has made a name for itself over the last 75 years. Located just north of downtown Pittsburgh, the practice's original office remains nestled in a West View neighborhood right behind West View Park Plaza. Drs. Louis Heyl, Donald Shoenthal, Scott Heyl, Matthew Macken and Brian Nolen lead their team of advanced practice providers in offering an unmatched level of care to the community. The practice's second location is housed on the UPMC Passavant McCandless Campus in the medical building, making it easily accessible and convenient for patients that receive care from other hospital providers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a PCP?

There are two primary reasons to establish with a primary care provider (aka. a PCP). The most obvious one is to be sure you can get care when you're feeling sick. This could be due to cold and flu season, ear infections, allergies, or a variety of other non-emergent reasons. While an emergency room should always be visited in a true emergency, visiting a primary care doctor (vs. an ER or urgent care) is often a cheaper resource for patients (due to what insurance may or may not cover). Additionally, your PCP houses your medical history and the providers are familiar with your needs.

Even if you are a healthy individual, you should visit with your primary care doctor at least once a year for an annual physical or wellness exam. These exams give your doctor an opportunity to check things such as your weight and blood pressure, as well as discuss how you have been doing and feeling overall. If your doctor spots any red flags during this appointment, they can provide feedback and advice on how to address them before they develop into serious, chronic health issues (including heart disease, diabetes, etc.).
