Rheumatologist Joins the Region’s Most Comprehensive Physician Network



East Stroudsburg, PA (August 10, 2016) – Pocono Medical Center welcomes Arif Shahzad, M.D., to the Pocono Medical Center Physician Associates as its new Rheumatologist.

Board-eligible in rheumatology and ECFMG certified, Dr. Shahzad has a particular interest in treating early onset rheumatoid arthritis. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, arthritis affects 52.5 million US adults, which translates to more than 1 of 5 adults. “My long term goal is for patients to have good quality and function in life to enjoy doing the things they love,” said Dr. Shahzad, “And I look forward to achieving that at Pocono Medical Center with my patients.”

Pocono Medical Center continually assesses the needs of its community, and as a result recognized that there was a need in Monroe County for a rheumatologist to manage and treat those affected by arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and pain disorders affecting joints.

Before joining Pocono Medical Center, Dr. Shahzad earned his medical doctor degree from Saba University School of Medicine, Netherlands Antilles, followed by his position at St. Francis Medical Center in Monroe, Louisiana, as Hospitalist and a rheumatology fellowship at Ochsner Hospital, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Pocono Medical Center (PMC) is a non-profit, nationally recognized hospital that has served the region for over 100 years. PMC has three comprehensive healthcare centers located in Bartonsville, Tobyhanna, and Brodheadsville, and over 19 primary and specialty care physician practices. PMC has one of the busiest and most-experienced emergency departments in the state with a fully-accredited Level III Trauma Center, Joint Commission Certified Primary Stroke Center and Hip and Knee Program. Backed by the region’s most robust team of over 230 physicians and providers, PMC offers a full continuum of care from clinical and acute care services to specialized services such as the state-of-the art cancer center and comprehensive cardiovascular care. PMC and the Pocono Health System Visiting Nurse and Hospice both received a 4-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, ranking PMC in the top 20% in the nation. PMC also serves as a designated, regional leader in safety as one of only 33 hospitals in Pennsylvania to receive an “A” rating from the Leapfrog Group and as recipient of the Healthgrades 2016 Patient Safety Award.
