Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lerner "Unfortunately, many physicians are either rushed, or don't listen to their patients. I try to treat my patients like family and request my staff to do the same. It is important to me to find out what each patient's needs are and to answer any questions they may have in an unrushed manner, and in a comfortable environment."
