We believe that as internists it is an honor and privilege to be able to develop meaningful and supportive relationships with our patients. The opportunity to ease pain and serve as a guide on the road to wellness are a few of the reasons why we entered the field of medicine. Throughout our careers, the physicians we most admired are those who unfailingly took the time to treat their patients with great kindness, respect and attention.
As the medical landscape continues to evolve around traditional office practices, it is increasingly difficult to provide the high quality of care that patients deserve. Complying with regulations and documentation requirements, adhering to insurance restrictions and treating ever larger numbers of patients in shorter timeframes is the new reality. This can mean long waits for appointments, rushed visits and internists who do not have time to coordinate their patients’ care with specialists or return phone calls. These barriers to care are simply not acceptable to us.
That is why we have been drawn to practice personalized medicine. Our experienced team helps you navigate the present medical system. We have time for what matters most: prompt appointments with respect for your busy schedule, extended office visits with ample opportunity to address all your concerns, and time to create individualized wellness plans. Most importantly, we are available by phone 24/7 to serve as your medical advocate whenever needed, whether it’s during regular office hours or in the middle of the night. It’s medicine the way it is meant to be practiced—with compassion, empathy and kindness.
We could not be more excited to offer this type of highly personalized care to our patients.
