Who We Are

Our Philosophy

Since our founding in 1948, we have established a reputation for providing outstanding healthcare. Our highest priorities include:

  • Exceptional responsiveness and availability, including attending our patients in the hospital and at home, and returning your calls!
  • Maintaining credentials and continuing medical education to assure that our patients receive the most up-to-date care and advice.
  • Seeking out and embracing new technologies that enhance patient care while avoiding those of dubious value.
  • Developing and nurturing an expert and attentive staff.

Our vision of comprehensive care extends beyond our walls. We have developed a carefully chosen network of consulting sub-specialists. Our role as patient advocate includes oversight and coordination of consultants as well as representation of our patients' interests with hospitals and insurers.
