Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pole "We are committed to delivering first-class primary care services, with timely appointments, good communication, efficient patient visits, and a one-stop approach to diagnosis and treatment. Our patient care philosophy is based on the belief that the quality of medical care delivered is directly related to the amount of time physicians spend with their patients. We believe patients want to spend more time with their doctors, they want more dialogue, and they want to be able to see their doctors when they need to see them. We practice an integrated approach to patient care, coordinating with subspecialists . For patients who need subspecialty care, the department we have a variety of choice for consultation and care for specific medical problems."
