Laura Oppenheim, MD

I grew up in Moorestown, New Jersey. I graduated with honors from Vassar College, and then spent a year teaching middle school in New York City and traveling around the world before attending Jefferson Medical College.  After Jefferson, I went to the University of Pennsylvania where I completed a residency in Family Medicine and additional training in Geriatrics during fellowship. The daughter of a family physician and a health care attorney, I understand medicine from multiple angles. I love primary care and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I really enjoy running, spending time outdoors, and taking my dog to the park.

COVID-19 Update

If you are sick or were exposed to someone with COVID-19, please contact our office. We are seeing sick patients in the office during special hours in the late afternoon, and we are still doing telehealth visits as well. We can perform both rapid COVID-19 testing and send-out COVID-19 testing at our office depending on what you need, as well as regular flu and strep testing too. Please schedule an appointment so you can discuss with a medical provider what is best for you.

Due to limited resources during the current COVID-19 surge, we will not be performing COVID-19 testing on patients who are asymptomatic and without any known exposure.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19, you should isolate at home until your appointment. The optimal window for testing is 5-7 days after an exposure, but please call us right away so we can make all of the proper arrangements for you.

If you live in the same household with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, you are at a high risk of becoming infected. You should quarantine at home until you can be sure that you are not infected. Please schedule a telehealth visit for specific instructions for your individual situation.
