Patient Centered Medical Home
We are NOT your average healthcare facility. We are a step above the rest. We're a facility that puts patients' needs above our profit margin. In other words, we provide medical care that is tailored to our patients, their needs, and their lifestyles. When diagnosing and treating, we take into consideration their feelings and what is best for their overall health, not just what's best for our practice.
We are a patient-centered medical home. This means we value our clients' values. If they're against a procedure or test due to religious views or other reasons, we listen with understanding and open minds. We give our personal recommendations, but the bottom line is that a patient should be in charge of his or her own healthcare. If you can't control your own health and body, what is there left in life for you to feel like you're in control of? Not only do we take into consideration your values versus the care you need when making any decisions about your health, we also try to find options that you might be more comfortable with. Your preferences and values shouldn't hinder you getting the care you need if there are other options available that may be more suited to your individual need and desires.
One way we ensure your opinion is respected amongst our staff is that each one of us will approach your situation in a non-judgmental manner. We understand that there aren't any two individuals out there that are exactly the same. Everybody has a unique personality and preferences and has been through a unique journey. Therefore, we can't fully understand the logic as to why he or she feels strong about a healthcare decision, but we're willing to listen and find alternative routes. We're also willing to work with you if it's a fear of a procedure. We'll explain the safety of it as well as the risks and hold your hand figuratively or literally.
We will provide you with the necessary information you need in order to make educated decisions about your health. We'll explain the pros and cons, so you can make an informed choice as to whether a diagnostic test or treatment will benefit you and if you can set aside any hesitations.
We want to make sure you know your health and opinion matters to us. We'll involve you in all clinical decisions, so you feel comfortable and less like a dollar sign and more like someone we value as more than a patient.
