Warminster, Pennsylvania -- Roughly 8.5 percent of the population in Pennsylvania was without health insurance in 2014, according to the Census Bureau. To address the coverage gap, there are doctors attempting to make a positive difference to those without insurance. Dr. Peter Schwartz is one such doctor. He volunteers with the Bucks County Health Improvement Partnership (BCHIP) to help provide health services to the uninsured.
In recognition of his services, BCHIP awarded Dr. Schwartz the "Volunteer of the Year" award. Dr. Schwartz, Associate Medical Director at Ann's Choice Retirement Community, has volunteered with BCHIP for over ten years. His duties include; acting as a consultant, reviewing patient diagnostics and meeting with patients.
"It's a nice recognition of my services rendered," said Dr. Schwartz. "I'm happy and proud to be part of an organization that takes care of people in need. It is a great honor, and I want to recognize the hard work of all the others who help the clinic."
Dr. Schwartz received his bachelor's degree in Biology from Wesleyan University in Middleton, Connecticut, and his medical degree from Tufts University School of medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. He completed his internship and residency at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dr. Schwartz is Board Certified in Internal Medicine. He has been a valued medical professional at Ann's Choice in February 2005.
