About Us

Mission Statement

This practice is dedicated to providing high quality, compassionate and cost-effective health care to the patients we serve. The ultimate purpose of all work in a medical practice is to help people. Service to the sick, the injured and infirmed must be provided when it is needed, thus a medical practice has to have operating policies in place to aid in obtaining this objective.

Many of the rules and policies of a medical practice are intended to build the confidence the patients feel in the physician and the supporting personnel. A strong physician-patient relationship is necessary if the patient is to receive the full benefit of the physician’s services.

Patients must feel they can talk freely to the physician, that the staff is knowledgeable and conscientious, and the medical practice is well managed. The physician’s employees play an important role in building the confidence by being tactful, cheerful, friendly, neat and industrious.
