Frequently Asked Questions
In a personalized care practice the doctor makes a commitment to limit the number of patients in their practice. Patients have much more time to spend with their doctor, which greatly enhances the level of care and attention to the patient’s needs.
Extended, unrushed visits enable the physician to spend meaningful time with the patient, build a relationship and provide more comprehensive, proactive care than in a traditional medical practice.
Patient advocacy: what happens to you outside my office is very important to me. I can serve as your patient advocate with other healthcare providers and specialists, helping you coordinate your medical care, medications and tests.
To become part of a personalized care practice the patient pays an annual fee.
I have always been passionate about the practice of medicine. I love being able to connect with my patients on many levels, to interpret their needs and provide comprehensive medical care.
In recent years I have seen dramatic changes in healthcare. Mounting administrative tasks take time once devoted to patient care. Converting my practice to a personalized care model has allowed me to continue to offer longer appointments and enhanced healthcare services.
My smaller practice size means you will receive more of my individual time and personal availability. If you wake up feeling ill in the morning, for example, you will be scheduled promptly for a visit and there will be little or no waiting time once you arrive. Should you have a concern after hours, you will be able to reach me easily and directly via my personal cell phone…whether you are at home or you’re traveling. At any time, I will be available when you need me.
My personalized care practice, with ample time to focus on preventive measures and wellness, is proven to be one of the most effective models for maintaining health.
If you do become ill – and we all recognize that health is unpredictable – you will have peace of mind knowing that the doctor who knows you best will be available when needed. A call to my office, or to my cell phone after hours, can frequently prevent a trip to the emergency room or to an urgent care clinic.
