I specialize in Family Medicine & Geriatrics. While the latter focuses on care of the elderly, the former encompasses the life cycle from cradle-to-grave and womb-to-tomb, regardless of sex or age.
But I practice family medicine with a twist - I don't settle for good enough. How often do you hear that from your physician - "it's good enough". But good enough for what?
Sure, a "C" or "D" grade is passing, but wouldn't you rather have an "A" or "B" grade? Unfortunately, it's not likely your teacher will help you unless you fail and receive an "F". But you didn't fail, you just barely passed, so assuming that you want to learn and receive a better grade, you have to hire a private tutor.
Likewise, most physicians are on a treadmill or in rat race to see more & more patients so you get "it's good enough" care. After all, that's what matters to the insurance companies. They're happy with normal but have no interest in optimal. But what if you value your health more and don't want to settle for good enough? You hire me to be your private health tutor. Simple as that. When good enough isn't . . .
However, I cannot provide you with any care without first laying hands on you as per state & federal regulations, not to mention our current standard of care. While a good portion of your care can and will be rendered via modern technology, eg phone & email, there has been recent concern about the practice of medicine without first directly physically examining a patient. This issue made the news locally on November 15, 2010 in the Las Vegas Review Journal and then nationally on November 19, 2010 in USA Today. I don't want to lose my license, so come out to Las Vegas for a day. Besides, our local economy could use some of your hard earned dollars.
