WHO ARE WE?
We enjoy caring for the whole person from all age groups. Nothing provides as much variety in a same day as one would enjoy in family medicine. Every person deserves a skilled primary care physician to diagnose, advise and manage most health problems. At our practice, we value the importance of unhindered access, unrushed appointments as well as the continuity of care. Talking to patients and their families and forming relationships is truly rewarding and is the essence of family medicine. It is an important specialty for our community and our nation. Sometimes I wonder what will happen if all the family physicians disappeared! It is both a calling and an extension of who I am as a person.
I take this opportunity to salute my mentors: Dr. Joe Sacco, who taught me how to listen and learn from my patients; Dr. Edward Berretta, who has always raised the bar of excellence in family medicine; and Dr. Tim Hanlon, who has taught me that practicing the art and science of medicine is a privilege. Most of all, we thank our patients, who have shared their life stories and made us part of their life journeys.
