My belief is the physician and the entire health care team should be dedicated to the patient 365 days a year. We need to not only provide an excellent experience during office visits, but should be monitoring and improving patient’s health in-between visits in order to ensure optimal health. In this way we can maintain the highest levels of quality, safety, access, and satisfaction.
