Laurel Health – Building Healthy Families

New family physician joins Laurel Health Centers

 

by Melissa Bravo - August 24, 2017

Monica Wilkins, MD is the newest board certified family medicine physician to join the Laurel Health network and is now accepting new patients at the Blossburg office in Tioga County.

“I am from Big Bear, California. I joined the Navy right after high school as a Cryptologic Technician. With Family Medicine I get to use my math and science skills to help individuals as well as the family unit and the community. I interviewed at several places but when I came to Laurel Health for Blossburg it just felt like home,” said Wilkins, who most recently worked for the United States Air Force as an active duty staff family physician at the Holloman AFB in New Mexico. She also had the opportunity to practice medicine in Africa for six months while deployed.

A 2010 graduate of Ross University School of Medicine in Mirimar, FL, Wilkins obtained her undergraduate degree in biology from the University of California, Irvine. Shortly after graduation from Ross University, she worked for a year as a veterinary technician in Corona, California. In 2013 she volunteered for two weeks in Honduras and in 2014 in Guatemala while working with Ohio State University as a resident international health provider. While in Residency she volunteered for numerous sports medicine events, which helped her land a job as the medical director for the ultra-marathon Ice Age Trail 50 in LaGrange Wisconsin. She continues to have a passion for Sports Medicine and looks forward to getting involved with the schools and athletes in Tioga County.

Dr. Wilkins is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Join us today on the Home Page Network to hear from Dr. Wilkins as she talks to us about keeping children healthy and active now that school has started and winter is coming. “The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Association of Family Practice recommends at least 60 minutes of activity a day. In order to encourage children to stay active it is important to make it family oriented and fun.”

Dr. Monica Wilkins is now accepting new patients at the Blossburg Laurel Health Center. For more information or to schedule an appointment with Laurel Health Care, visit LaurelHC.org or call 570-638-2174.
