Conemaugh Physician Group Welcomes Rheumatology Physician

February 28, 2017

Conemaugh Physician Group will add a new specialty to its offerings for patients with the opening of Conemaugh Physician Group – Rheumatology Nason. Marianne Shaw, MD will provide outpatient rheumatology care from the practice located at 1792 Plank Road, Duncansville, PA 16635.

Dr. Shaw earned her bachelors degree in Molecular Biology from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA; followed by her medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. She completed an Internal Medicine residency at University Hospitals of Cleveland Case Western Reserve University, and a Rheumatology fellowship at Cleveland Clinic Foundation, both located in Cleveland, OH. She is a member of the American College of Rheumatology and American Medical Association.

“During a rotation as a medical student, I fell in love with Rheumatology,” says Dr. Shaw. “I enjoy getting to know patients and their families.” Rheumatology offers great satisfaction in being able to provide care, she says. “There are so many treatment options available now in Rheumatology, and it is very rewarding to see the improvement in patients' health and quality of life."  Born at Nason Hospital, Dr. Shaw is excited to serve her community while living close to family.

“Dr. Shaw will be an asset to the community and Conemaugh Physician Group,” says Ann Marie Bomba, Director of Specialty Practice Operations of Conemaugh Physician Group. “There is a patient population needing rheumatology care and we hope to continue to grow this practice and enhance services provided to these patients.”

When not practicing medicine, Dr. Shaw enjoys time with her husband, 16-year old daughter, 13-year old son, dog, and cat.

Two Physician Assistants, Jeremy Gorsuch and Tamara Smith, will also see patients at this location. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Conemaugh Physician Group – Rheumatology Nason at (814) 317-5188.
