What sets our clinician apart from others are that we have the shortest waiting time to office appointments in all categories (new patients and established patients) compared to other primary care offices in the area. You will work with a board certified physician; enjoy secure paperless communiations with your pharmacy, lab-testing, medical subspecialist referrals and sugical specialist referrals. And after your evaluation, we take the time to educate you about your diagnoses and also hand you printed materials educating you about your diagnosis. If you have facilitated your access to our Patient Portal, you will also be able to see the same copy of the printed materials from your Patient Portal. 

Not only that, prior to leaving our office, we will seek your understanding of your diagnosis as well as the potential complication(s)—from the education we provided and then discuss the treatment options available to you. We also seek your understanding of what it means when you choose not to engage or pursue your treatment recommendation. Follow-up is a critical part of managing all life-changing or life-threatening health conditions. In any case, we pledge unconditional respect and support for all rational and well-informed decisions. Even when we must engage the expertise of medical subspecialist or surgical specialist, you should count on us to continue to serve you, not just as the team who referred you but also as your trusted partner for coordinating all of the necessary evaluations and all the treatment programs that follow.

With your busy life, it can be difficult to stay on top of your healthcare or the healthcare of a loved one--even though our health is the most important thing of all. Our Patient Portal provides fast and secure access to your health information. It allows you to communicate with your provider by sending and receiving secure messages. Using your secure password, you can log into the Online Patient Portal 24 hours a day, 7-days a week from the comfort and privacy of your home, office, or mobile device. From your mobile device, you can stay in touch with your provider and access your health information readily for an out-of-town emergency. You can request prescriptions and prescriptions refills and retrieve test results. How about viewing existing office appointments and requesting new office appointments? It's all possible from our Patient Portal.  So don't forget to ask our front desk staff at your first visit to learn more about our Patient Portal.
