The team of physicians, advanced practitioners and a certified midwife provide services that include routine obstetrics and gynecology, high risk pregnancy care, breast care, fertility care and newborn testing. 

St. Luke’s Palmerton Pediatrics is a small practice with longstanding roots in the community.  Pediatrician Mira Slizovsky, MD, monitors children’s growth and development and helps prevent illness through vaccinations and by providing general health advice.  Dr. Slizovsky also treats a wide range of illnesses and injuries and makes referrals to St. Luke’s growing team of pediatric specialists when appropriate.
