McAlisterville physician’s practice to relocate Sept. 2

LEWISTOWN – David Aldinger, a medical doctor practicing with Family Health Associates in McAlisterville, will begin seeing patients in Mifflintown starting in September, Geisinger officials said Wednesday.

Geisinger-Mifflintown is located on CJEMS Lane, just off state Route 35. While Aldinger will see patients three days a week as he does now, the Mifflintown facility is open five days a week. This means Aldinger’s patients will have access to other doctors and staff even when Aldinger is not in the office.

“We thought it was a good opportunity to help support him and his patients on days he’s not working,” said Kay Hamilton, chief administrative officer of Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital.

Patients who currently see Aldinger in McAlisterville will be able to continue seeing him in Mifflintown. Notification letters were mailed to Aldinger’s patients on Thursday.

Aldinger did not return phone calls seeking comment as of press time on Thursday.
