Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Epstein "I love the excitement and ever-changing world of medicine. I'm fascinated by the constant evolution of it - from new drugs and procedures to research - there is always so much to learn and apply to patient care and there will always be more. I'm pleased to see current shift to value-based medical care, because I started this practice to help and heal patients, and value-based care shifts the focus towards being more pro-active and less re-active in managing health, and that's good for everyone."
