Dr. Tiffany Helman, a family medicine physician is joining the practice of Dr. Alexander Paterson in Jennerstown, Somerset County.
Dr. Helman is a graduate of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia and a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in Richmond, Virginia, where she received a certificate in physiology and her Doctor of Medicine. She completed her residency at Excela Health’s Latrobe Family Medicine Residency Program.
“I am very excited to have this opportunity to join the Conemaugh Physician Group and work with Dr. Paterson,” says Dr. Helman. “I really like his patient population; they are hard working, honest and nice people who truly appreciate the care provided by Dr. Paterson. It is a rewarding feeling to have that impact on a community.”
Dr. Paterson and Dr. Helman graduated from the same residency program which is one of the things that attracted her to the position. “I did not know Dr. Paterson personally but he is well known throughout the residency program and people speak very highly of him,” says Dr. Helman.
Dr. Helman chose to specialize in family medicine because she likes the variety and the ability to work with patients of all ages. “I like being able to provide general overall care to everyone from babies to the elderly. You get to see a lot of different issues and perform a variety of procedures,” says Dr. Helman. “I particularly love the patient education aspect of family practice, the ability to help people understand medical issues and improve their health and wellness.”
Dr. Helman says adolescent medicine is also a big interest for her and something she is looking forward to providing to the Jennerstown region. “I believe I can really click with this population and have a positive impact,” adds Dr. Helman.
Dr. Helman met her husband at the University of Virginia. He is a Greensburg native and that is where the couple and their children will reside.
