Patient-Centered Approach to Care. The patient knows themself better than any physician ever can. The role of the physician is to advise and educate patients as to treatment options. The patient always has the final decision as to what path to take and the aggressiveness of care. There is no black and white in medicine!
Quality of Patient Care Communication with Patients & Family Members. Patient & Caregiver Satisfaction. Treating Patients in the same way as family members would be treated. Coordination & Communication with other medical providers, Including Home Health Nursing, Hospitalists, & Specialists. Attention to detail – understanding that most medical errors arise from overlooked details
Use of Specialists
Primary Care Physician’s work towards managing medical problems, not transferring them to others. The initial management and work-up of medical problems is the domain of the Primary Care Physician. Specialists have a role when specific tests or procedures are needed, or if the complexity of the problem becomes too difficult to manage. The primary care physician still needs to play a central role in overseeing the specialist. It is always the patient who has the final say as to whether or not they want to consult a specialist – we will not deny care.
Use of Physician Extenders
Team-Approach to utilization of Nurse Practitioner (ARNP). Two eyes are always better than one! The physician always be sees ALL patients on a regular basis. However, so will the ARNP. The ARNP acts as a supplement, not a replacement.
