My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as your private doctor is to partner with you to create a personalized healthcare plan to effectively treat your current health problems and prevent new ones. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, you will be treated as members of my family. My patients will benefit from my osteopathic education, expertise and years of experience in clinical medicine. 

My primary care practice will continue to serve the Middle Paxton Township, as it has for over 37 years. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, my goal is to provide you with highly personalized healthcare while focusing on prevention and wellness. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time. I will also continue in my role as the Chief Medical Officer, treating our students in the Central Dauphin School District. I will remain on active staff with Pinnacle Heath Systems (Community Osteopathic Hospital, Harrisburg Hospital and West Shore Hospital).

Dr. Brescia has been my doctor for over 20 years and I as all my extended family that were and are patients of his were always treated like VIP'S. I really have no interest in MDVIP but joined because I can't imagine finding or going to another doctor. He and his staff can't be improved on in my opinion.

from Sue in PA March 6, 2018 for Francis X. Brescia Jr., DO, FACOFP

Recently, I unexpectedly experienced blood clots in my leg. Dr. Brescia, who has been my doctor since he opened his office many years ago, immediately prescribed the appropriate treatments. Dr. Brescia's kind and knowledgeable care resulted in my good health today. He and his staff are always respectful, caring and good listeners. I am most grateful.
