Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Astrachan "Having been a patient on multiple occasions I know how I wish to be treated. It is my goal to treat patients the way I wish to be treated. I want a physician who will listen to me, educate me, treat me with skill and compassion and not keep me waiting or rush me. That is how I strive to treat my patients. Every doctor patient interaction may not be perfect but I hope that by keeping the patient first and foremost I can get close."
