I believe each individual is unique…with their own history, health conditions, ethics and emotions. My goal is to put the healthcare system to work for you. This includes providing a comfortable and relaxed setting with quality time to evaluate your particular issues. I believe every patient needs someone to explain their medical issues and challenges in terms they understand. This includes what is known about their health, how to become proactive in their quest for good health and wellness, and to be afforded quality time to ask questions. Over the years I have always emphasized the role of patient choice and now my patients and I have the time to make these choices together.
In addition to being available during week day office hours, I also offer after-hours flexibility for urgent issues whenever possible. In my "personalized" practice you will be seen by me on the same day or the next business day…normally within 24 hours of your call.
When you call my office there will be no layer of recordings to navigate…only real people with a real concern for your health and well-being. After hours, I am readily available to my patients when they need me on my personal cell phone.
During my occasional absences from the office, a trusted colleague will be available for urgent issues.
If a parent opts to join my personalized care practice, I am happy to care for his/her dependent children up to the age of 26 without an additional annual fee.
Should a family member or friend become ill during a visit to the Torrance area, I will be happy to assist them with prompt medical care as though they were a member of my practice.
