Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Persin "My philosophy revolves around the physician-patient relationship. This relationship must be a partnership. The physician and patient must listen, trust and respect each other. As physicians, we must get to know our patients to appropriately care and guide them in their health care journey. Medicine is not all about guidelines and algorithms. We treat the whole patient, and therefore, we need to tailor our decisions based upon each person's needs and circumstances."

Bethlehem, PA |
Dr Persin was the worst dr I've ever visited in my life. I went to him terrified and he dismissed me and laughed (literally laughed). I wouldn't wish even Dr Persin to visit a Dr who treated me how he treated me. Luckily I was able to find another Dr who took me seriously and got to the root of my medical issues and am finally feeling better. Dr Persin made my life much worse for many months and probably never even thought twice about me.

Staff seems confused and not very helpful. Dr. Persin is great.
