Only twenty minutes from the Anderson Campus, Bushkill Family Practice has become a popular choice for primary care services among patients from the Lehigh Valley, Slate Belt and Poconos. The practice recently welcomed Ellen Didimamoff, MD, a board certified family practitioner, to accommodate the growing patient population.

“I want to work where I live and serve my own community,” said Dr. Didimamoff, who has resided in the Lehigh Valley since 2005. “St. Luke’s is a wonderful organization and my first choice for medical care for my own family.” Previously, Dr. Didimamoff was employed by the Hunterdon Healthcare System in New Jersey, where she spent nine years in private practice following a three-year residency with Hunterdon Medical Center.

The addition of Dr. Didimamoff has allowed Bushkill Family Practice to expand its hours, offering evening hours twice a week. Also, most days she begins seeing patients at 8 am, a popular time with patients wanting an appointment prior to work or school. Adding to the their convenience, patients can go directly from their appointments to the St. Luke’s Wind Gap Medical Center, just across the street, for laboratory work, ultrasounds, X-rays and mammograms.

While Dr. Didimamoff offers the full range of primary care services from newborns through geriatrics, she especially enjoys working with women, children, and adolescents.

“As a mother myself, I feel patients can relate well to my experiences,” she said. “In turn, I have learned so much from my patients over the years.” Dr. D., as she is often called by her patients and their families, reassures parents that she wouldn’t suggest anything for their children that she wouldn’t do for her own children.

Dr. Didimamoff has enjoyed watching patients and their families grow over the years. “In my previous practice, I saw children progress from grade school to college,” she said. “It is a very rewarding experience and a privilege to be part of their lives for so long.”

Dr. Didimamoff is eager to build her practice here in the Lehigh Valley. She looks forward to the years ahead and already feels much at home in her new working environment.
