Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Padilla "I believe it is important, of course, to treat patients as individuals.  It is also crucial to do better than "the guidelines" which are all-too-often designed to provide "the best care for the price" rather than "the best price for the care."  A guideline (blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes control, etc) should be considered the very least one can do, rather than as a goal, which once achieved, means no further efforts are needed. (Consider the analogy to getting a 65 on a math test.)  I have been fortunate to practice in Greenwich, CT, with a sophisticated, highly-educated and motivated patient population; they have made it rather easy for my practice to surpass national, and even up-corrected (for socioeconomics) outcomes.

My goal is not only outstanding outcomes, but also to help my patients fully understand all the "whys and wherefores," behind what we (my patients and I) do."

I was told this doctor was a genius. He certainly believes he walks on water. He trashed my other doctors, was arrogant beyond all belief and only vaguely interested in addressing the medical reason for my visit. He was much more interested in getting into all kinds of other medical issues I...Read More
