Changes at Greenhouse Internists

As we enter our 27th year, we are announcing some changes at Greenhouse Internists.  Dr Chandrasekaran will be leaving Greenhouse, effective December 11, 2015.  He will be joining a new local company that is working to improve health care in the Philadelphia region.  He has been a great asset to the practice and will be missed by both staff and patients.  Dr Chandrasekaran’s patients are welcome to schedule with any of the other doctors.

Dr Maureen Armstrong joined Greenhouse in July. She recently completed her residency at Lankenau Medical Center.  She has an interest in women’s health and preventive medicine.  She has been a great addition to the practice and is already developing a loyal following.

We are excited to have Emily Desnouee as our new practice manager. She has been at Greenhouse since 2008 in a number of different capacities, most recently as our Quality Assurance Manager.  She brings a number of skills to her new position.  Dr Fabens will continue as administrator of the practice and so her hours will remain limited.

We will be looking to hire another provider, but our physician capacity will be limited until that occurs.   For that reason, we will be limiting the number of new patients at Greenhouse as we want to be able to meet the needs of our current patients.

With our current number of providers, we feel it is prudent to refocus our efforts at the Mt Airy office.  The Wyndhill office will be closing on November 18th and the Mt Airy site will be our only office.

These are challenging times for primary care, but Greenhouse remains dedicated to serving as a medical home and providing excellent outpatient care for our patients.  In the upcoming months, we hope to improve our scheduling, portal communication, and the management of chronic health conditions. We are excited about our upcoming changes and welcome your insights and comments.

Welcome Dr. Maureen Armstrong!
