Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stansell ""It was volunteering at the Washington, DC Free Clinic during my graduate school days that convinced me I needed to make an abrupt career change," says Dr. Stansell. "Almost overnight, my enthusiasm for studying small molecule signaling and cell differentiation changed to a burning desire to advance health care for my community. Medicine became a passion, not an option. Not a day in the past thirty years have I awakened without that same fervor for patient care. I am now and have always been enormously grateful for this opportunity.""

Patient Comments (2)
Palm Springs |
Simply the best. Dr. Stansell has been my physician for a decade.
in San Francisco, CA |
This "doctor" ignored my symptoms and dismissed therm as "temporary." 7 years and two major spine surgeries later, I am left with permanent nerve damage and my motor functioning is impaired. The man does not deserve to be a doctor.
