This year has seen major changes to the healthcare environment. These changes have been developing over time, but their effect is now apparent. In medicine. We have the ability to personalize medical care. There is much talk about prevention and patient centered care. However, when you look at the reality, medicine has been reduced to the seven minute medical visit for primary care. Recommendations are being based on populations, not on individuals. Primary care doctors are seeing upward of 150 patient visits a week. A doctor CAN NOT give a patient individualized care and decent medicine.
I have dedicated my practice of internal medicine to providing the highest level of individualized care. Each person is unique. Their health is based on genetics, nutrition, stress, exercise and meaning in their lives.By addressing these issues we truly are a patient centered practice. We provide the best of traditional and holistic medicine unencumbered by the dictates of insurance companies.Decent care is not as expensive as people think.
