Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stearman "I love being a Family Medicine physician! I consider it a privilege to be trusted with what is often a very personal and vulnerable subject, your health. Your diagnoses are part of you, like puzzle pieces, but they do not define the picture you create. I asked one of my patients why she chose me to be her physician and this is what she said, "I feel like you care about me as an individual and not just as another medical diagnosis. You work with me to set realistic attainable goals." I value evidence-based care and the constant opportunity to learn from my patients and my peers. It is my goal to inspire you to take responsibility for your health care choices and to partner with you to design a plan of care that starts wherever you are."
