A Message from Dr. Childs
Our health care system is broken. Millions of Americans lack health insurance and those of us who pay overpriced premiums realize that the greatest beneficiary of these programs is the insurers and not the patients or healthcare providers.
Over the past 20 years of practicing medicine, I've tried my best to maintain a high standard of providing healthcare. I have strived to treat my patients as if they were my own family members. Unfortunately, maintaining this very personalized approach in the current medical environment, where doctors are forced to see more patients, offer shorter appointments, and attend to endless mounds of paperwork, is just not possible and is no longer acceptable to me.
I believe that time, while not the most sophisticated diagnostic tool, is the most important resource I have in caring for my patients. As an internal medicine doctor, time is my most valuable resource. Illness is much more complex than a series of lab or x-ray findings. It is rather a disturbance that is interwoven into the fabric of a person's life.
By carefully listening to patients and patterns, clues emerge that allow for better diagnostic and subsequent treatment strategies. By implementing a patient-centered medical home, I finally have the time and freedom to provide old-fashioned, personalized care using advanced technology. I now offer unhurried office visits, see patients when needed, and be accessible to efficiently handle emergencies.
I have limited the size of my practice so that I can provide the best care possible. Patients are assessed with a yearly fee in keeping with the American College of Physicians guidelines, to provide and support patients with different health care needs, that goes beyond the face-to-face encounter of a visit.
Once again, I can be an advocate for my medical family and focus on providing the best preventative and acute care that I have been trained to offer. I have been able to resurrect a true physician-patient relationship and a comprehensive educational approach to health and wellness.
