Morgantown hugs the Pennsylvania border along the picturesque Monongahela River. Farther southeast, toward the Allegheny Mountains, Cheat River draws outdoor enthusiasts with its springtime whitewater rafting. Those interested in a more peaceful communion with nature can hike along Caperton Trail, which passes a vintage train depot and heads into historical downtown Morgantown.Home of West Virginia University, downtown Morgantown blends the dynamism of a university town with rustic, small-town charm. Along Main Street, antique shops, art galleries, and boutiques now occupy late 19th-century Victorian buildings. Decadent chocolates take center stage on April 14 for Chocolate Lovers' Day, when the downtown area teems with dessert samples and the Monongahela is drained and filled with liquefied chocolate.

Founded by David Blass, MD, FACS in 1977, Laurel Ridge Surgical Associates has grown to include four more surgeons and a full roster of medical and cosmetic surgical procedures. The doctors consult closely with primary physicians and patients, and pore over x-rays, lab-work results, and middle-school diaries to determine the most effective course of treatment. Whether performing vascular, abdominal, or breast surgery, the surgeons pride themselves on using minimally invasive techniques, such as removing a gallbladder with just three tiny incisions.
Associates in Dentistry's smile curators scour for stains and galvanize gums with a combination of hands-on and technology-aided treatments. Relax in a reclining exam chair for a full dental cleaning as a trained hygienist whisks away plaque and tartar. A digital x-ray feeds data into a computer to carefully chart out jaw structure in a process that produces up to 90% less radiation than standard x-ray machines.
Twenty years ago, the founders of Med Health Services were fraught with frustration. Avoidable health emergencies such as strokes and heart attacks were killing too many people nationwide. They pondered how to shift medicine's emphasis from treatment of acute symptoms to disease prevention and early detection. Their answer was an OSHA-certified outpatient facility that partners with physicians to perform diagnostic medical tests.
Today, at more than 50 area locations, Med Health Services’ team of pathologists, radiologists, and cardiologists addresses problems plaguing the American health-care system. Many patients undergo expensive tests at hospitals when they're already very sick, and many doctors don't have the right equipment to perform these tests in their offices. By taking some of these tests out of the hospital, Med Health Services helps doctors and patients catch serious problems in their early stages. Appointments are easy to schedule, and results turn around quickly, like a somersaulting carousel.
Assessments range from ultrasounds and x-rays to blood and nerve-conduction tests. Board-certified physicians and registered technologists perform the tests and analyze the results to ensure accuracy and peace of mind. To make the tests as accessible as possible, Med Health Services works with a wide range of health plans and Medicare providers.
