Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Saftchick "As a general internist, and primary care physician- I place emphasis on a comprehensive approach to the patient as an individual and view illness in terms of its relation to the entire body- as opposed to specialists who view an illness in terms of only the organ system they treat. If there is something going on in your body that I am not sure about- I know the right people who can take care of the problem, and will refer accordingly."

Dr. Saftchick does provide telephone consults, however, very often the request is for a referral to a specialist or a request for a prescription refill when the patient has not been seen in over 6 months or some other prolonged time period. The doctor is mindful of financial and time constraints placed on patients these days, however, he will not compromise on his standards and allow these constraints to affect the quality of care that he delivers.
