Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. McGettigan "As a physician, I believe in caring for the patient as a person, not as a disease or condition. I believe in creating a supportive environment and working with the patient to navigate through the complexities of their condition and the medical field in general. I believe that patients' opinions and wishes are an important part of any medical management discussion, and work with them to find a plan with which they are comfortable."
