Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shemesh "My Approach to Treating Patients Being trained in both internal medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation, I try to incorporate all available information to formulate a working diagnosis. By obtaining a careful history from the patient, performing a thorough examination and correlating this with available data including lab tests, radiographic imaging and other information we can establish an effective treatment plan. Most importantly, I like to get to know my patients by taking the time to listen carefully and explain their condition and treatment options thoroughly, so we can achieve the best possible outcome for their condition."
