Renaissance Family Practice (RFP) formed in 1995 as a union of six private primary care offices. The original 25 physicians were committed to delivering the highest quality of health care and to educating future generations of physicians through UPMC St. Margaret’s Family Medicine Residency Program. The premise for the forming RFP was to provide high quality care for individuals, families and the community at large. Our mission remains the same today for our group of now 31 physicians.  In 2008, RFP joined the UPMC primary care network and has maintained our identity as a well-respected neighborhood practice that cares for multiple generations within families. For years Renaissance Family Practice has been viewed as one of the highest quality primary care practices by its patients, UPMC, the medical community and insurance providers alike. Every year, several of our physicians are named “Best Doctors” by Pittsburgh Magazine affirming our commitment to our patients and to high quality patient centered health care.
