Learn about Dr. Pousada

Care Philosophy

I believe everyone has the right to receive excellent health care. We care for adults from age 16 to 100 . I have over 35 years of experience in internal medicine and geriatrics. I believe strongly in forging a personal partnership with each patient.  We help patients truly understand their health by speaking to them clearly and in detail about their medical treatment and options.

Our office staff is completely bilingual in Spanish, and many languages are spoken by our staff, including French, Italian, Greek, and Urdu. Clear communication with our patients is one of our top priorities. 

In addition, I believe everyone has the capacity to age successfully and joyously. This process begins in early life and requires a continued supportive and interactive relationship between the patient and doctor. In addition to promoting preventative medicine, we specialize in the coordination of care for the frail and elderly. Excellence is the standard of care to which we adhere.
