Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sontz ""I think the most satisfying aspect of my medical practice is my interaction with patients.I operate off of the 'Golden Rule' and try to empathize with people," states Dr. Sontz."More often than not, there is a lot more going on in patients' lives than their heartissues. Getting to know patients and figuring out their deleterious stresses along with adverse patterns in diet and exercise are important to getting them better. It is very rewarding to be able to help someone get healthier.""
