Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pappas "Welcome to the Magnolia Medical Clinic! I would like to take this opportunity to share my philosophy with you before we embark on this relationship. Yes, the contract between a patient and the physician is a relationship. There has to be mutual respect, understanding, patience, and an emphasis of working together toward a common goal--the optimal health of you, the patient. As a Family Physician, I am focused on wellness, the avoidance of disease, or the medical management of disease once it has manifested. Providing optimal care to you takes time, communication, education, and the appropriate use of studies and specialists. It is my goal to be your medical advisor, and do my best to answer your questions. It is only through your complete understanding that we can maximize your health. It is my goal to help you live a healthier more fulfilling life. I want to not just add years to your life, but life to your years! Many of the common health problems can be improved, and sometimes even eliminated with the "all natural" combination of exercise, good nutrition, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoidance of the health-robbing effects of cigarettes or excessive alcohol. Each time we meet our time will be too short but we will focus on the most important topic (or two) and take care of that issue to the depth required to move you toward a healthier future. I ask that you return on a regular basis so that we can address ALL of your issues, and once we have a solid treatment plan in place, we can extend the time between follow up appointments that is appropriate for your medical issues and our schedule. So, please, help us help you, by keeping your appointment focused. Our team tries very hard to stay on time, so that we can be respectful to everyone. We all live busy lives, and we want minimize your wait here in the clinic. Thank you in advance for your understanding! Thank you again for choosing the Magnolia Medical Clinic. We have been here for almost 60 years, and look forward to taking care of you and your family. Please let us know how we can better meet your needs. We are here for a healthier you! "
