Anita Eck, PA has been with Tri-County Family Medicine for over 20 years. She has been serving our community as a primary care provider and preceptor for physician assistant students. Anita has called Tri-County home for her entire career!
Receiving her education in Texas, Anita graduated from the University of Texas and relocated to New York state to begin her career as a physician assistant. Later, she expanded her career by becoming a clinical instructor for Rochester Institute of Technology’s physician assistant students.
Tri-County’s focus on family and sense of community is what drew Anita to practice here. “Being in a rural community has allowed me to interact with my patients, both while caring for them and interacting with them in the community. I enjoy that!”
Anita’s love of helping people influenced her to practice family medicine. Her position enables her to care for patients through all aspects of their lives, from newborn to the elderly. “I have patients that are now having children and am caring for them as well as their aging parents. Not only is this a bonus, but this family history aids me in caring for them.”
Beyond work, Anita serves in the community as a board member at the Vincent House, a local hospice home and volunteers at the Cohocton Food Pantry. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends.

Bernard Sweeney, MD
Love of family medicine and the outdoors brought him to Tri-County. And keeps him here!
Dr. Sweeney is passionate about medicine as well as the outdoors. When his wife came to Rochester to train as a Physician Assistant, he came too. He discovered Letchworth State Park, Stoneybrook, Niagara Falls, and the Finger Lakes. And he hasn’t looked back.
Dr. Sweeney is a graduate of the Georgetown University School of Medicine and has practiced for 34 years, 20 of them at Tri-County. He chose family medicine because he enjoys its diversity and personally understanding his patients’ values and outlook on life. His approach to patient care is to treat people with respect and to listen. “I need to acknowledge their difficulties and try to work with them to stay healthy. The challenge of primary care is very enjoyable because every person is unique.”
There were many reasons Dr. Sweeney chose Tri-County but one stands out. He likes working with a diverse group of providers here but interestingly they all share the same goal – to treat people as you would want to be treated.
Needless to say, after 20 years in Geneseo, Dr. Sweeney is pretty well known in the community and he enjoys it. “I’ve diagnosed a few cases of Shingles in the grocery store,” he says with a chuckle.
In his spare time, he enjoys the outdoors and gardening. Yoga is another passion along with jigsaw puzzles.
