Turn back the hands of time.April 4, 2015
Back in the days the doctor patient relationship used to be personal one and now with the demands of health insurance companies and the federal government it has turned into an impersonal one. Also we live in a fast paced world and this can be applied to most aspects of your life except for when it comes to your healthcare needs. Over the past 5 years of practice I have developed a clinical workflow which enables me to develop a productive and qualitative doctor patient relationship.When shopping for a doctor you must ask the office what the doctor/patient ratio is and that your seeking patient centered care, where you have face to face time with your doctor. This is key to developing a personalized doctor patient relationship. Prior to developing any symptoms and/or illness make an appointment to establish a relationship. During the first visit it's very important to make the doctor aware of your expectations and define the relationship so that there isn't any disappointments in your care down the road.
The Importance of Health Assessments.April 4, 2015We strongly believe in seeing a doctor prior to developing any illness so that a care plan is developed to prevent you from becoming ill in the first place. Despite your age, and health condition everyone can benefit from a health assessment. During the health assessment we gather information from the patient to promote wellness and devlop a comprehensive health strategy to increase the patient's overall health condition.
