7 Family Medicine Specialists Join Local Practices

UPMC Altoona Family Medicine Residency Program Graduates 10


ALTOONA, Pa., July 14, 2017 - Seven newly graduated residents of the UPMC Altoona Family Medicine Residency Programs will join local practices to provide much-needed primary care to families in Blair County.

The program graduated 10 new physicians with specialty training in family medicine on June 30. Five graduates will join UPMC-affiliated practices and two will serve the program as adjunct faculty. Since the residency was founded in 1975, more than 40 percent of graduates have stayed in the region, said Program Director Don Beckstead, M.D.

Graduates choosing to make the Altoona area home are:
  • Garrett Kirkpatrick, D.O., joins UPMC Altoona Keystone Practice, at 2612 Pleasant Valley Blvd.
  • Jessica DeStefano, D.O., joins UPMC Altoona Blair Medical Associates, Family Practice at Logan Medical Building.
  • Lance Joseph, D.O., joins UPMC Altoona Mainline Medical Associates, at Station Medical Center, 1414 9th St., after completing a fellowship in palliative care medicine in addition to his residency training that was completed in 2016.
  • David Moaddel, M.D., and Khadia Phillip, M.D., will treat patients admitted to the hospital through UPMC Altoona Lexington Hospitalist practice.
  • Sarah Reinhardt, D.O., and Barbara Naimoli, D.O., will practice at Reinhardt Family Medicine.
“This community is blessed to have a family medicine physician training program at UPMC Altoona,” Beckstead said. “We recruit top-quality medical school graduates. Under the tutelage of our experienced physician faculty members and the hospital medical staff, residents gain valuable experience in the hospital, at our Altoona practice and in rural medicine at our Williamsburg practice.”
