Dr. Giedwoyn's Care Philosophy

I practice the full scope of primary care in the office. I provide a "medical home"—one location where you can receive care for most health issues and one physician who is helping you coordinate the care you may receive from other providers or specialists. I prefer to rely more on healthy lifestyle and less on pharmaceuticals. My interests are strong in nutrition and in "food as medicine". I can refer you to a wide array of traditional medical specialists and alternative providers and I feel comfortable collaborating with them to provide you with great healthcare. Both as an employed physician and as a patient, I have experienced mainstream medicine to resemble an assembly line form of care. Patients who are motivated to understand why they have a medical problem, rather than just wanting a pill to solve the problem, often need longer appointments than typical 10-20 minute visits. So I practice "slow medicine." Longer visits allow more holistic healing and future health success.
