Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pena-Ariet "All team members are considered caregivers. Under this principle, everyone in the workforce, from housekeeping staff to the CEO, is part of patients' care experience. Regardless of one's role, each person is expected to put the patient first. 

Care is based on continuous healing relationships. This principle reinforces a focus on the continuum of care for patients rather than episodes of care.

Care is customized and reflects patient needs, values and choices. The principle of customizing care recognizes that each patient is different and may have different needs and preferences. 

All caregivers cooperate with one another through a common focus on the best interests and personal goals of the patient. The principle of working together to make sure all patients receive the same care regardless of which provider they are seeing in the office on the day of their appointment."
