Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Saran "- Provide state of the art medical care for our patients in a friendly, compassionate and professional setting. - Communication is the key to a great physician and patient relationship. I strive to explain their medical condition and discuss their treatment option in plain language. Questions are answered. Pateints will leave the office feeling that all their concerns and questions were addressed. - I review all the current medications with my patients, making sure that they don't have any adverse affects with each other. One of the main points in geriatric medicine is to reduce the number of tablets an elderly patient is taking. - I seek to provide the most complete care to my patients in a caring and respectful way."
