Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Towbin "Family physicians deliver a range of acute, chronic and preventive medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians also manage chronic illness, often coordinating care provided by other subspecialists. Our practice offers a broad spectrum of medical specialties and outpatient diagnostic services. Our electronic medical record allows you doctors to coordinate and collaborate on your complete medical care."

Doctor Towbin is one of the best Family Doctors I have ever had. He makes me feel comfortable but most of all he listens. By his questions I know I have his complete attention and understands my concerns. He addresses them simply, clearly and professionally. His office staff is pleasant to deal with and efficient, During my visit the Doctor determined I needed to see a Specialist.. As I was leaving the office I was given a referral and saw the Specialist the next day!

I find Dr. Towbin to be a great doctor - it took me over a year to locate a new doctor in the Port St Lucie area after my last two doctors retired. He is extremely friendly and is interested in the medical problems I have - he has assisted me with my diabetes and getting my high blood pressure down and under control. He is always interested in what I am feeling and have to say about my daily health problems - he keeps me up-beat about my medical problems and helps me manage my health. Thanks.

It is my pleasure to recommend Dr. Scott Towbin to anyone who is looking to find an articulate, knowledgeable and compassionate primary healthcare physician. Dr. Towbin has impressed me because he not only "knows His stuff," but because he takes the time to listen and discuss my concerns and questions. He then explains in detail what his recommendations may be. My wife and I consider ourselves very fortunate to be in his care.

Dr Towbin is very thorough in his approach to treatment of my conditions. He seems to completely review the possible diagnosis and get the proper (factual) testing done to make treatment decisions. He recently called me on a Sunday to communicate test results, which was greatly appreciated.

Dr. Towbin has been my Primary Care Dr. for many years. This latest one was after a 2year cancer episode. He was up to date on all procedures, took much time and care and concern for my situation. It was a good visit as he helped ease a medical problem with Medication, set up follow up care. He is very eager to listen to questions & most positive to outcomes . Thank you , Dr. Towbin.

I was beyond impressed with my experience with Dr. Towbin and his staff! Scheduling my appointment was easy, convenient and the scheduler was very personable. I was pleased that the office mails out New Patient Paperwork, so that it may fill it out prior to the appointment. From the moment I walked into the office until checking out, it was obvious that Dr. Towbin and his staff understand the importance of providing professional healthcare, delivered with integrity, compassion and respect.

Dr. Towbin has been my doctor for over four years, he is caring and takes the time to really listen to me as the patient. He is quick to find information on the net on things we discussed that I was concerned about, then actually has it printed out for me before I go to the checkout desk to take home and read. Dr. Towbin was the doctor that took care of my love Jim, as he was going into dementia, setting things up that was such a help to us. Jim is gone, I will forever be grateful to Dr. Towbin.

Dr. Towbin took the time to sit down and go over every single concern I had, and explain what could possibly cause my symptoms. He did a complete lab draw up on me (which was done in office - no Quest!) and told me they would follow up, whether the results were good or bad. The wait time was minimal, and the attention and care I received were of the utmost quality. I have already recommended this office to a friend.

He takes time to sit and talk with you and explains everything I felt he wanted to make sure I was comfortable and all my questions were answered before leaving

The Doctor is great, but the nurse Monica never answered my calls, regarding medication concerns, also I just got a bill from November last year they sent my labs to be process at a lab that is not covered my insurance, so now I had to call my past insurance, for them to resubmit the claim and I may be stuck with this bill.
Always great , my favorite doctor

My partner (age 87) and I (age 73) have been patients of Dr. Towbin since last summer. We are especially impressed with the fact that he listens...and pays attention....to our questions and concerns. He answers our questions in detail without overwhelming us with too much information. He was recommended to us by my sister, who has been one of his patients for a couple of years. We are all three very pleased with his medical skills and his willingness to work with us as patients.
