WE NEVER STOP LEARNING
Medicine never stands still, and neither do we. We’re always updating our approach to medicine by keeping up with the latest research. We’re always careful to remain patient-centric in everything we do, never losing sight of your time, your situation, your values, and your health.
We’re on a mission to give our patients the kind of care our practitioner would like to receive themselves. To accomplish this, we focus on three things:
- Gathering complete medical histories, performing thorough physical exams, thinking through challenging diagnostic dilemmas, and searching the medical literature to find answers when answers aren’t immediately obvious.
- Explaining our thinking clearly enough for patients to understand it precisely.
- Tailoring our medical advice to each patient’s lifestyle and values.
IT'S NOT A DOCTOR'S OFFICE.
IT'S A SOURCE OF GOOD HEALTH.
Our easily-accessible office is designed with the patient in mind. No crowded waiting room. No impersonal glaring lights. No long waits. We've created a space dedicated to fostering a new kind of patient experience: on that lasts a lifetime.
CARE WITH ACCOUNTABILITY
Frustrated by your inability to reach your doctor on the phone or to get timely appointments scheduled when you need them? Feel rushed during your appointments? Feel that your doctor lacks the time to think through all your medical issues carefully and explain his or her reasoning clearly enough for you to understand it?
If you’re looking for white-glove customer service delivered by the top medical minds, A Heartbeat Away Clinic is for you!
