“The relationships that develop over time are extremely rewarding and enjoyable. I enjoy helping people navigate through what can be a sometimes scary and uncertain time in their life. “
Some of the services you will
receive as a member of my practice:
My goal is to provide support, at any age or stage of health, in understanding personal values, life goals, and preferences regarding current and future medical care.
When you call my office during office hours there will be no recording to navigate, only live people to take your call, with a real concern for your health and well-being.
After hours for urgent issues.
My personal cell phone number will be provided to you. This allows easy and direct phone communications for urgent medical problems that occur outside of my regular office hours.For emergencies, however, always call 911 first.
Little or no office waiting room time, and longer appointments.
Office visits will start promptly and appointments will generally be scheduled for approximately 30 minutes, but appointments for a comprehensive annual health assessment will be scheduled for approximately 60 minutes. My goal is to afford you the time to thoroughly address all of your questions and concerns, regardless of the reason for your visit.
Extended office hours.
Office visits are best scheduled when the full complement of staff is available. However, should you require occasional visits outside of our usual office hours, we will certainly do our best to reasonably accommodate you.
Strong focus on preventive medicine and long-term health and wellness.
As part of my commitment to your long-term health and wellness, my philosophy is to educate you about the importance of fitness, weight management, and healthy living. In addition to the clinical services that I already offer through my practice, I will assist you to identify and evaluate wellness providers and offerings. This will support your efforts to take an active role in managing and maintaining your good health.
Personalized hospital care.
Should you need to be hospitalized, I will make sure to communicate with you and to serve as an advocate on your behalf, even when you are admitted to a facility at which I do not have privileges or where I am not your attending physician.
Adult dependent children of members are welcome.
If a parent opts to join my personalized care practice, I will be happy to care for his/her adult dependent children between the ages of 18 and 26, for a nominal fee.
Long distance care.
If you are on vacation or living some of the year in a second residence, a virtual consultation will be offered. If in my judgment you need to be seen by a local physician, you’ll be encouraged by me to seek medical attention. I will communicate with you directly as well as with your treating physician as needed, to support the coordination of your care and health issues that may arise. Telemedicine visits are subject to applicable state and federal laws and offered on a case-by-case basis.
