James F. Rich, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an internal medicine physician, I care for adults ages 15 - ? My specialized interests are adult medicine, primary prevention, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. My goal is to deliver the finest care possible to my patients and answer their questions in a timely, thorough manner. I encourage all of my patients to take a proactive approach to their healthcare.

As your partner and advocate, together we will manage and anticipate your unique healthcare needs. As an MDVIP-affiliated doctor, my smaller practice size allows me time to build a personal relationship with each patient, so you can achieve optimal health. We will closely collaborate on a personalized health plan to keep you on the path to wellness.

My practice is located in Camp Hill, PA and serves the surrounding areas including Harrisburg, Lemoyne, New Cumberland, Progress, Enola, Middletown, Hershey, Ephrata and Elizabethtown. You will feel welcomed by the relaxed, individualized attention you will receive from everyone in our office.
