New St. Luke’s Buxmont Gastroenterology location opens in Harleysville; esophageal expert joins practice


As St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) expands its presence in Bucks and Montgomery counties, it is also enhancing its capabilities.

St. Luke’s University Health Network opened a new office for gastroenterology patients at 142 Clemens Road in Harleysville on May 1.

New to the practice is Dr. Christopher Hibbard, who is certified in gastroenterology by the American Board of Internal Medicine and specializes in esophageal studies. He joins other providers at St. Luke’s Gastroenterology, including: Dr. Jerome M. Burke, Dr. Michael J. Cassidy, Dr. Inki Hong, Dr. Keith R. Kearney, Dr. Ira Kelberman, Dr. William J. O’Toole, and Herman D. Sharrer, CRNP.

Hibbard is the former director of esophageal disease at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, and he brings a wealth of expertise in disorders of the esophagus, including motility issues, GERD, and Barrett’s esophagus treatment.

“The technologies and training I’m bringing to the network will allow patients in the Sellersville and Harleysville areas to have access to these tests and treatments here,” said Hibbard, who serves as an instructor in medicine at Albert Einstein Medical Center and as an assistant professor of medicine at Thomas Jefferson University.

Previously, these studies were only available at the St. Luke’s Bethlehem Campus.

St. Luke’s Gastroenterology also has locations at St. Luke’s Hospital – Quakertown Campus and at St. Luke’s Gastroenterology – Buxmont 1107 Bethlehem Pike in Sellersville.

Hibbard is accepting new patients. For an appointment with him or other providers at St. Luke’s Gastroenterology or network wide, call 484-526-6545.
