As Primary Care Providers (PCPs), our goal is to create a doctor-patient relationship that is based on trust and focuses on you as an individual. Our hope is that through our skills our patients will feel confident and secure in us as physicians. We aim to create a professional environment that is not only thorough and efficient, but compassionate and comfortable as well.
As PCPs we are your main health care provider and we do not take this responsibility lightly. The physicians at Oswego Progressive Medicine tailor their therapies to meet the individual needs of each patient, factoring in physical, social, emotional and spiritual aspects before prescribing a course of treatment. Our physicians are highly motivated and have had extensive training in:
Providing preventive care and teach healthy lifestyle choices.
Our physicians value prevention as one of the greatest tools in health. Prevention costs less than expensive medical interventions, and in the long run brings more benefits. Preventive care focuses on lifestyle choices such as physical activity, nutrition, stress management, and spirituality in addition to yearly screening tests..
Identifying and treat common medical conditions.
It is our goal to understanding subtle aspects of your well being that might not typically be addressed in a medical interview. This might involve inquiries into day-to-day experiences that often reveal important clues in the diagnosis and treatment of our patients.
Assessing the urgency of your medical problems and directing you to the best place for that care.
There are conditions that may be beyond the scope of our practice and/or knowledge. It is important to our physicians to accurately assess each and every patient’s individual circumstances and make sure that they receive the best care possible.
Making referrals to medical specialists when necessary.
Because they view natural remedies as complementary as well as primary, our physicians cooperate with other medical professionals, referring patients to alternative medical doctors, allopathic medical doctors, surgeons and other specialists whenever appropriate.
