Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Strauss "My philosophy is that it is important for you to feel cared for, to be listened to, and to have enough time to discuss your concerns without feeling rushed; it is also important for you to have your condition explained to you in common terms so that you can participate in your own healthcare decisions once you understand your condition and your options. Furthermore, you should have access to a group of excellent physicians who are proficient in various procedures you may need and who work well together--we have an excellent group of Cardiologists with varying areas of interests/expertise who can provide a full panoply of cardiac procedures and surgery in additon to routine care. We very much look forward to meeting and caring for you."
