MINOTOLA, NJ (October 24, 2013) — Mavola L. Tench, M.D., board certified by the American Board of Family Practice, has moved from Inspira Medical Group’s office in Glassboro to the physician group’s new family practice in Minotola to serve the needs of the community.
Inspira Medical Group acquired the Minotola family practice this past September after Chimanlal J. Patel, M.D. announced his plans to retire. The practice has been an important part of the community, providing quality primary care to area residents for nearly 40 years. Tench is now seeing patients at the office four days a week and is accepting new patients in order to make sure the primary care needs of area families are met.
Tench attended medical school at Temple University’s School of Medicine, earning her degree in 1993. Three years later, she became board-certified in family medicine immediately after graduating from the residency program at Inspira Medical Center Woodbury (formerly Underwood-Memorial Hospital).
With more than 17 years of experience as a family physician in southern New Jersey, Tench believes in a family-centered approach to medicine. Her philosophy is to provide comprehensive medical care by partnering with the patient to find the correct diagnoses and to develop and maintain a plan of care to both treat and prevent disease. In addition to providing primary care for adults, she also provides care for children of all ages and routine gynecology.
Inspira Medical Group Family Medicine Minotola is located at 901 Central Avenue in Minotola. For more information, please call the office at (856) 697-0111.
