“Many years ago, my idea of what it meant to be a doctor was formed by my experience of my own family doctor, a guy with a good handshake, and a kind and a thoughtful countenance. I consider being able to practice medicine, and extraordinary privilege, but maintaining an independent private practice has become an extraordinary challenge. Joining a group of physicians who share the sense of privilege and the joy of ‘finding things out,’ who are supported with the tools, technologies, and talent to make the private practice of medicine sustainable, is why I joined Privia Medical Group.”
I have used services of this practice ever since relocating to this area. I have always been fully satisfied with the medical care offered.
“As we enter a new era of healthcare, improved outcomes for all is the goal. Corporate ownership of healthcare is happening whether we like it or not. The days of a small business cottage industry are over. Keeping what is already good intact in this process is important; in other words, ‘Let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater.’ I feel that system organization from Privia offers us the best opportunity from the options we have. Providers of health care need to have a say in this process. Privia seems to emphasize that. With their support, I hope to spend the rest of my career providing better quality care than I could have dreamed of providing without their support.”
“The practice of caring for patients is a delicate process that needs to focus on comprehensive care. There needs to be a partnership which is built on trust, respect, and open communication. In order for this to be successful, patients need to be heard and empowered in their own care while at the same time working toward a mutual goal of optimal health for the patient and family.”
“I truly enjoy and am honored to partner with my patients to meet their health care needs. I am here to actively listen and to provide guidance and support to my patients’ personal journey to optimal health.”
