Best family doctor sought

The Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians needs the public's help to track down the PAFP's 2013 Family Physician of the Year – the best doctor in the commonwealth. Maybe she lets her patients call or text her any time with questions and concerns; perhaps he still makes house calls after decades of practice or takes care of multiple generations of a family. That's the kind of physician who would make a perfect candidate for the 2013 Family Physician of the Year.
