Care Philosophy

We live in an era now where we have medication commercials for prescription medications on the television, on the Internet, on the radio. And while they may be good informative tools for the patients to think about certain things, I think at the end of each one of those commercials there's always a disclaimer that, Please discuss these with your physician. Where the physician can come in is give focus to some of this information and can guide the patient into saying, Well, that information is based on this. This information is based on fact. This information is just speculation. This information is purely commercial. This information has this - these are the people who have supplied this information. A good internist will always know which problems you have to worry about, or which problems you do not have to worry about. And I think for the average patient at large, I think that's what they're looking for. They're just looking for clarity. I've heard all of these things. What do I worry about?

One of the best doctors I've ever seen. Smart, compassionate , informed, well-read and prepared. The best of the best. I have left the area, so he's outside my new plan. But for an internist, you cannot do better. And every encounter, he teaches new things in a very easy way about your health. He's in an academic practice, so there are fellows and students are nowhere near him. It's worth it. And he's not fast. That's part of his being prepared & educated about you. Any delay? Worth waiting.
