I help people with any preventive care or health maintenance needs that they have — which means making sure that they’re up to date on all their immunizations, on any needed cancer screenings, for example, breast cancer screening and mammographies in women, colon cancer screening.
The reason I decided to go into primary care was that I can develop relationships with patients over time and be seeing them back, hopefully, for many years over the course of their life — helping people possibly through difficult times in their lives or just making sure that they stay well and have an improved quality of life.
