Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kushner "In my practice, our goal is to help patients stay well. We work hard to make sure that patients understand their conditions and the importance of taking their medications as directed. We also encourage them to get screenings and tests that will help us catch problems early. It?s equally important for patients to know and understand any risk factors including those from family history. In medicine, knowledge is power."
