The delivery person entered Dr. Laurie Molinda's waiting room carrying a large wicker basket filled with colorful flowers, autumn plants and even a small pumpkin. The card read, "Best wishes for a long and profitable practice from three of your new patients." The seasonal arrangement was an "office warming" gift from two sisters and the seeing-eye dog that accompanies them to their appointments with Dr. Molinda.

Although she has only been in her new office in the Martik Plaza in Finleyville for a few months, Laurie Molinda, M.D. has already made a significant impression on the community. During the Sept. 19 Open House, there was a steady stream of current patients visiting along with their friends, relatives, and neighbors. The attendees also included people who had heard that there was a new doctor in the area who wanted to informally meet the physician and her office staff.

During the Sept. 19 Open House, visitors had an opportunity to casually talk with Dr. Molinda and her staff, learn about the diagnostic tests offered right in the office, tour the exam rooms and even roll up their sleeves to receive flu vaccine. Dr. Molinda's staff provided free blood pressure screenings and staff from Monongahela Valley Hospital offered pulmonary function screenings. Visitors also received individual demonstrations of the office's express check-in kiosk which enables returning patients to securely register and make their co-payments with the touch of the screen or swipe of a card.

Dr. Molinda is a board-certified internist with 25 years of experience. She is an avid believer in treating the whole person with special attention to preventative health and wellness as well as management of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). She works closely to coordinate care with other health care providers involved with her patients' care. Her commitment to quality is apparent by the consistent high scores that she receives from patients which are measured against national benchmarks.

Inpatient care for her patients is delivered at Monongahela Valley Hospital which has been ranked among the top three medium-sized hospitals in the United States for patient satisfaction based on HCAHPS scores by the Johns Hopkins Medicine Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality.

Dr. Molinda's journey to Finleyville began with her studies in Louisiana, Oxford, England and Virginia where she received her Medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia. Prior to opening her new office, she was the Medical Director of Health Works of Canonsburg General Hospital. Earlier in her career, she was affiliated with Sewickley Medical Associates and Gateway Medical Group.

Dr. Molinda has weekday hours by appointment. Her office is located in the Martik Plaza, 6108 Brownsville Road Extension in Finleyville. For appointments call 724-782-0723.
