Dr. Qaum's Care Philosophy

My practice is centered around you, the patient. I offer same-day appointments to accommodate your busy, unpredictable schedules. I fax (or mail) your primary care physician with a typed report of my findings the same day as your appointment. A copy is also furnished to you to remind you of everything that was discussed. Since an informed, educated patient is the best patient, I highly encourage questions so that you understand your care thoroughly. To this end, every patient is given my home telephone number (316-630-9114) to call if they have questions or concerns about their care (even after-hours or on weekends). A 24-hour emergency number is also provided.
