Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Keefer ""Trying to prevent health problems is important, but so is having to cope with health issues when they arise," Dr. Keefer says. "Understanding the various specialized approaches one may encounter in medicine is often challenging. One of our roles is to help educate patients about those areas, equip them to make the best decision they can for themselves and see them through the process.""

She does not prescribe medicine unless it is absolutely necessary. She also is very helpful in giving advice to deal with the insurance companies, which is rare to find in a physician these days. I've seen her for over 15 years and hope I can continue to see her for 50 more.
