On Saturday, Oct. 26, Lawrence R. John, MD, was sworn in as the 170th president of the Pennsylvania Medical Society. Dr. John is a family medicine physician from Pittsburgh. He practices with Drs. John, Chantz, Biedrzycki & Associates - UPMC and was named one of “Pittsburgh’s Best Doctors” by Pittsburgh Magazine in both 2017 and 2018.
