Primary Care – Our primary care physicians are here to provide a constant support system for our patients to lean on. Few things are more important than your health, which we treat by conducting annual physicals, providing care for your non-emergent medical needs, and assessing symptoms for specialist referrals.
Women Care – Whether it's your routine checkup, disease diagnosis and prevention, or providing knowledge and support throughout your pregnancy, we believe in empowering women with the information they need to have full confidence in their own health.
Pediatrics – Pediatricians provide care for children and young adults up to the age of 21. Our trusted physicians focus on ensuring your loved ones' health by treating everything from minor injuries to complex health conditions. We encourage patients to visit our office for annual physicals, sick visits, and preventative healthcare.
Orthopedics – Your bone and joint health can significantly impact your quality of life. Our orthopedic experts evaluate breaks, strains and sprains, and help develop a treatment plan that puts you on the road to recovery.
Podiatry– Podiatrists are physicians who primarily specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries of a patient's feet, though other lower limbs may also be impacted. Our doctors are also highly skilled at recognizing the signs of medical conditions that may first be presented on a patient's foot, such as diabetes or vascular disease.
Nutrition Counseling – Counseling sessions with our expert dietitians provide a way for patients to examine how their lifestyle and diet are reflected in the way they feel. We hold ourselves to the highest standard of patient care by taking the time to understand patient concerns and observing your privacy.
X-Ray – X-ray technology is used to detect fractures or breaks in bones and to locate foreign objects in the body. The images provided by our technicians can inform physicians' decisions about the right way to care for your injury.
Ultrasound – An ultrasound is an effective type of imaging that allows technicians to examine the structures and organs inside of your body. Ultrasound technology bounces sound waves off of body tissue and translates these waves into images.
Blood Testing – Catholic Health laboratory services test and process blood locally, allowing for fast, same-day results. Our locations offer an extensive catalog of blood tests, helpful in diagnosing disease, measuring risk factors, and evaluating a patient's overall health. On the day of your visit, be prepared with a prescription, identification, and insurance information. Make sure to follow any specific instruction from your doctor as well.
Heart Smart for Life is a FREE program focused on lowering stress, improving blood pressure, and eating right to improve cardiovascular health in the community. Participants are asked to attend six classes over the course of three months. To sign up today, call (716) 923-6104 or (716) 923-6138.

Our part: Showing genuine compassion and care for each and every one of our patients, so you always have a place to turn with your non-emergent healthcare needs.
Catholic Health’s board-certified physicians place the utmost importance on getting to know you – your family history, risk factors, overall wellness, and any other related conditions. Together, we will make decisions about what’s best for you and your health.
The relationship between a patient and their primary care doctor is one of the most significant links in healthcare. We’re able to translate your symptoms so they can be understood by other caregivers, and coordinate a care plan based on our familiarity with your health history. We work to remain your touchpoint between how you’re feeling – in your own words – and recommending resources in the larger medical community.
