Care Philosophy

My decision to become a physician started with a desire to provide comfort and care by using the many and growing therapies and technologies to help those who are sick and to also prevent illness . In cardiology we have the privilege of the development of advanced technologies in the treatment of the acutely ill. Maintaining health and the prevention of illness is also a great calling and focus through education and counseling and treatment. My goal for my patients is to provide a groundwork for wellness through discovery and treatment. The patients, their families, the staff and I share in some remarkable journeys that sometimes span decades. That is a solemn and precious trust that I treasure.

Boise, ID |
Correctly diagnosed my condition within just a few minutes, and performed a procedure the same afternoon that corrected my problem. Extremely personable, and always takes all of time necessary to listen to, and address all my concerns.

ER patient, Dr. Writer indicated William see him this week and to call his office and talk with his Nurse fo insure an appointment. After a promise to call me back failed, talked with Janie who indicated Danny would be put on the line, after being on hold for 15 minutes I was sent to new patient information Desk and was informed the next available opening with Dr. Writer was May 11. Danny indicate William was not a priority or Dr Writer would have returned her call. wow..

From day one, Dr. Writer made me feel that I had found a supportive, knowledgable, and caring physician. He has answered all my medical inquiries, explained the pros and cons of every medication and procedure, and given me a path/plan to address my medical situation. Most of all, he helped me focus on realistic and positive outcomes and how to get there. His calming positive support and understanding are in themselves reasons he has earned my trust and appreciation.
