Family Medical Practice
Patient Portal / Access My Medical Record
to my family medical practice! July 1, 2006 marked my tenth anniversary
as a primary care physician, serving Monmouth County in Freehold, NJ and
the beginning of my third year in private practice. My mission at the
inception of my practice was simple and remains the same: provide consistently
high-quality service to my patients at each and every interaction we have.
As a Board Certified Family Practice Physician, my staff
and I are happy to serve the health care needs of babies, children and
adults from their younger to elder years. We pride ourselves on being
thorough, friendly and efficient. We offer a wide range of services dealing
with all disease states and are recognized in the medical field for making
use of available technology.
My office is structured to provide same-day appointments
for acute care, and, as a further convenience, evening hours are offered
every week. Our respect for your time is supported by our excellent history
of seeing patients on schedule.
We offer a host of diagnostic procedures including, but
not limited to, Electrocardiography, Pulmonary Function Testing, Audiometry,
Tympanography, Urinalysis, and, recently, we have added Advanced Cardiac
Diagnostics to include Holter and Event Monitoring, where indicated.
We are proud to be on the cutting edge of administrative
technology. With the implementation of Electronic Medical Records, where
all patient records reside on our computer system, a patient's complete
file is available to me at any time, either in the office or remotely.
With the receipt of all lab work and blood test results directly into
our computer system from the individual laboratories, results are received
quickly and clearly and distributed to patients on the date received.
Finally, we are very proud of our use of electronic prescribing.
With the implementation of electronic prescribing, a patient
can pick up a prescription at a pharmacy of their choosing within just
a few minutes of leaving my office. Patients no longer need to inconvenience
themselves by delivering their prescriptions to their pharmacy. This new
system also provides me with the opportunity to select a medication with
less likelihood of drug interactions with the medications a patient is
already taking. Finally, electronic prescribing affords me the chance
to select a preferred medication from a patient's formulary, therefore
saving my patients from higher co-pays for medications.
I hope that these services offered meet the needs of you
and your family and that you will entrust me with your healthcare. I am
confident that you will be made to feel comfortable from the time you
arrive at my office and that feeling will only progress as you continue
with your visit. It is very important to me that every patient receives
the individual attention to which he or she is entitled.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my existing
patients. With your help and recommendations, my practice continues to
grow at a substantial pace. Thank you for placing your trust and confidence
