What I Offer
I will perform regular medical evaluations in the comfort of your residence or, in rare cases, my private home-office. There is no waiting room and you will not be subject to exposure from other patients. There will never be more than one patient in my office at a time.
I will provide patients and their families ways to contact me easily and rapidly.
I commit to responding in a timely fashion to any questions or needs.
I provide urgent appointments, no longer than 72 hours and often much faster.
I can perform minor procedures and help coordinate further testing if needed.
I know most local hospital-based physicians and specialists personally and will communicate with them closely if my patient needs referral or hospitalization.
I will always advocate strongly for my patients interest and in adherence with their wishes.
I have an exceptionally talented nurse-assistant who helps manage my office.
What's Not Included
I, like the majority of primary care physicians, do not admit patients to the hospital, nor will I be their doctor if they are admitted to a Skilled Nursing or Acute Rehab facility. I do communicate closely with the physicians who care for my patients during those times as well as with discharge planning staff. I will follow closely and resume care upon discharge.
I am not a substitue for an Emergency Room, nor do I commit to being available after hours. True emergencies should be addressed in the ER immediately. Non- emergent issues that can wait until business hours will be addressed as soon as I am able, always within 24 hours. My goal is to prevent unnecessary ER visits as much as possible.
