Drexel Medicine’s University City location at 3401 Market Street has provided primary care services to faculty, staff and the surrounding community since 2013. In the last year, they expanded those services to include obstetrics and gynecology and sports medicine. (Pictured to the right are Dr. Susanna Evans and Laura Wangensteen at the 3401 Market Street location).
Dr. Dana Farabaugh and Dr. Luisa Galdi of Drexel Obstetrics and Gynecology see patients every Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Drs. Farabaugh and Galdi provide routine gynecologic care including annual check-ups, pap tests and breast exams. Family planning, fertility evaluation and other women’s health services are available as well.
Dr. Thomas Trojian, a sports medicine specialist and team physician at Drexel University, sees patients Monday afternoons and Friday mornings in University City. From casual walkers to elite athletes, anyone suffering from an exercise-related injury can benefit from a sports medicine physician. Common injuries treated by Drexel Sports Medicine include sprains, knee pain, tendonitis and other types of muscle and joint pain. In addition to diagnosing and treating a patient’s current injury, Dr. Trojian also assists with injury prevention and risk assessment screenings.
“We noticed an increase in demand from our patients for these services, so we’re happy to offer them in a convenient location,” said Susanna Evans, MD, medical director at University City. “As time goes on, we may begin to look at bringing other specialties to this location if we determine there’s a need.”
For faculty and staff, seeing a Drexel Medicine physician is a convenient and affordable option, especially if you receive health insurance through the University. Employees with coverage through Drexel have a $0 co-pay on primary care visits and routine gynecologic care.
While in the same building as the Student Health Center, the patient area designated for faculty, staff and community members is separated by its own entrance and waiting area. This allows visitors to maintain their privacy while taking advantage of the practice’s convenient on-campus location. The recent expansion in services at the University City location has also allowed for more appointment slots, including some additional same-day appointments.
In addition to primary care, sports medicine and obstetrics and gynecology, Drexel Medicine offers a full suite of health care services. From eye care to neurosurgery, the Drexel Medicine network, comprised of more than 250 doctors, delivers exceptional, patient-focused health care to the Philadelphia region.
