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."

Please don't go to this doctor, he makes you do a bunch of text that you really don't need just for him to get money. And he doesn't know how to explain whats going on with you
