Welcome to Peaceful Balance Health and Wellness

Healthcare Without the Hassle

As a Direct Primary Care (DPC) provider, Peaceful Balance Health and Wellness focuses on you and your health without the unnecessary intrusion of insurance companies. I believe that the best primary care medicine is both personal and affordable, and that’s what PBHW offers. Primary care is all we do, so you are the primary focus of every appointment you attend. The DPC experience fosters the development of a patient/provider relationship based on trust and respect; the type of relationship every patient deserves.

  • Peaceful Balance is a patient centered environment – which means you are at the center of everything we do and every decision we make.
  • PBHW IS a participating provider in the traditional Medicare program. We do not bill insurance for the care provided in our office, with the exception of traditional Medicare.
  • Peaceful Balance Health & Wellness is a part of the American Advanced Practice Network (American APN). This gives us access to the most cutting edge technology available for delivering patient care in the office or virtually through telemedicine. American APN is a nationwide network of Nurse-owned practices that support nurse entrepreneurs like Dr. Bock.

Dr. Bock was inducted as a fellow of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners in 2014. Less than 1% of the 248,000 NP’s in the US qualify for a fellowship in AANP.

Dr. Bock started working as a nurse practitioner in primary care in Carlisle, Pennsylvania when she joined Brookwood Family Medicine in 1994. She began her own private practice in 1999 in New Cumberland in partnership with another nurse practitioner. That practice grew and changed, seeing patients of all ages until 2014 when Bock Family Healthcare closed its doors. Patients continued to contact Dr. Bock about when she was going to open another practice and in 2018, she decided to open Peaceful Balance Health and Wellness Services.

Dr. Bock began her career in healthcare as a teenager when she joined Silver Spring Ambulance and Rescue Association. She served in many roles at SSARA, including serving as chief for several years. She is a life member there and continues to be involved in pre-hospital medicine by providing continuing education to EMTs, paramedics, firefighters, and other 1st Responders in Central Pennsylvania. She is also a life member at Silver Spring Community Fire Company and supports work there through contributing to their fundraising events and acting as an instructor for CPR and First Aid.

From 2013-2017 Dr. Bock served as the President of the Pennsylvania Coalition of Nurse Practitioners, leading the organization that represents the over 14,000 Nurse Practitioners in Pennsylvania. She volunteers with the World Surgical Foundation and has been to Honduras 5 times to provide much-needed healthcare. She formerly worked as the Nurse Practitioner for the PA General Assembly and as a faculty member in Nurse Practitioner programs across Pennsylvania, including Millersville University, Misericordia University, York College of Pennsylvania, Robert Morris University, and Penn State University.
