UPMC Cardiology Provider Offers Services in Muncy, Lewisburg
UPMC welcomes Darcie Desiderio, DNP, to team of skilled cardiology providers in the Susquehanna region. She will see patients at UPMC Muncy and UPMC Specialty Care in Lewisburg.
Desiderio, a nurse practitioner, received her doctor of nursing practice degree from Case Western Reserve University, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, Cleveland, Ohio, and her master of advanced practice nursing from New York University, Rory Meyers College of Nursing, New York. She is certified in critical care, emergency, and heart failure with over 20 years of experience in health care.
“There’s a lot on our minds right now and we may be putting our health on the back burner, but it’s important to never put your heart health on hold as our lives depend on it,” said Desiderio. “Pay close attention to risk factors and focus on living a healthy lifestyle as these are the best means to stave off heart disease. Knowing your key health features such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels allows you to proactively engage in your health, partner with your provider to tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs, and restore your quality of life — which is the most rewarding outcome for a provider."
Desiderio is currently seeing patients at UPMC Muncy, 215 E. Water St., Muncy, and will also see patients at the new UPMC Specialty Care, located at 2330 Saint Mary St. West, when it opens in November. To schedule an appointment, call 570-321-2800.

It is one of three new UPMC facilities in Lewisburg. Drs.
