Senator	Judy	Schwank	
210	George	Street	
Reading,	PA	19605	
	
Dear	Senator	Schwank,	
	
I	am	writing	to	you	regarding	recent	challenges	we	have	faced	with	obtaining	Pennsylvania	medical	
licenses	for	new	practioners	that	have	been	recruited	to	our	organization.			
	
The	significant	delay	in	processing	state	licenses	has	caused	disruption	in	hiring	primary	care	physicians	
and	providers	for	the	Berks	County	Community.		The	2015	Joint	State	Government	Commission	Report	
from	the	General	Assembly	of	the	Commonwealth	of	Pennsylvania	outlines	the	clear	need	for	primary	
care	in	our	area.	
	
Dr.	Noelle	Juliano	completed	her	Internal	Medicine	residency	at	Reading	Hospital	June	2018.	Her	
application	was	submitted	June	2018.		Her	initial	start	date	for	our	health	system	was	the	end	of	July	
2018.		This	was	delayed	one	month	into	August	and	is	now	delayed	indefinitely.		The	last	update	she	
received	was	that	her	application	would	likely	be	reviewed	further	in	September.		Erin	Roth,	nurse	
practitioner,	passed	her	board	exam	June	29,	2018.		Her	complete	application	was	submitted	to	the	board	
mid	July	2018.		She	has	additionally	received	an	update	that	her	application	maybe	reviewed	mid	
September.		As	a	result	of	this	delay,	we	are	at	a	deficit	of	two	primary	care	providers	who	were	
scheduled	to	start,	had	patients	scheduled,	and	are	now	forced	to	wait	for	this	to	be	resolved.	
	
Any	assistance	that	you	can	offer	to	help	with	this	process	would	be	greatly	appreciated	by	the	patients	
and	their	families	in	Berks	County.	
	
Sincerely,		
	
Jessica	Schwartz,	D.O.	
Chief,	Section	of	Ambulatory	Internal	Medicine	
Department	of	Medicine	
Reading	Hospital	-	Tower	Health	System
