Community Wellness Partners Welcomes New Physicians to Medical Team
NEW HARTFORD, NY – Community Wellness Partners is proud to announce the addition of two new physicians to its medical team. Brian Chase, M.D. and John Pylman, M.D. will oversee the ongoing care of Community Wellness Partners residents.
Dr. Chase completed his undergraduate work at the State University of New York at Binghamton and later earned his medical degree from the State University of New York Upstate Medical University. He attended the Family Medicine Residency Program at St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center in Syracuse, NY. Dr. Chase is also a Utica Medical Club Member and past president.
“Transitional medicine, as it has come to be referred, is an attempt to transition patients and families – from an often-overwhelming acute care experience – to home or a higher level of care,” Dr. Chase explained. “That often means taking a more existential view of one’s medical care and life goals. This time in one’s life has often been overlooked in the medical community. I believe we have entered an era where transitional medicine will take center stage in the care of our aging population.”
Dr. Pylman completed his undergraduate coursework at Duke University, and later received an M.S. in physiology and biophysics from Georgetown University. He attained his medical degree from George Washington University and attended the Family Medicine Residency Program at St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center in Syracuse, NY. Dr. Pylman is a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Medicine.
“In the nursing home environment, we see patients for whom acute treatment and early intervention is an absolute necessity,” Dr. Pylman explained. “By delivering an inpatient level of acuity to the long-term and rehabilitation settings, we're often able to address chronic medical comorbidities, as well as minimize complications and unnecessary hospitalizations.”
