Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
Dr. Medeiros' history as a practicing physician has spanned a wide breadth, including acute care at an academic medical center, urgent care in a community clinic, prison medicine, and most recently, full service primary care in a corporate group practice. She loves variety and challenges, and is determined to serve patients rather than "the system." Dr. M is well known for 'turning off the clock' when she enters an exam room, a method that does not mix well with the 'burn and churn' pace of traditional primary care. Looking patients in the eye and connecting with the full story surrounding an injury or illness are the hallmarks of how she approaches diagnosis and management. She considers education the most powerful therapeutic tool and teaches patients at every opportunity. All of this is possible in the new Direct Primary Care model. "With DPC, patients can afford concierge care. Now they just need to decide whether they deserve it."
