Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gahr Sr "My first priority is always the patient. I do everything myself--take your blood pressure, etc. You will not be shunted off to an assistant. I am a board certified internist--many internists/pcps are not. I can be easily reached on weekends. Unlike most doctors who have patients fill out health checklist forms in advance I personally take your medical history. After we are done in the examining room we talk in my consultation room. Most docs just scurry from exam room to the next patient."
