Philosophy Of Care

It is important for me to address the whole patient. To see everybody as more than parts that need fixing. I approach each patient with a treatment plan that is uniquely tailored to each individual. I incorporate integrative and holistic medicine where appropriate and with a patient who is open to it. It is not just about feeling healthy and well, but also about the experience of getting there.

Dr. Afridi is a superb doctor, offering options for my optimal health that are not ordinarily known by most doctors, but are very effective. She is an excellent, caring, and attentive professional.

I am very pleased with Dr. office staff and the manner in which she runs her practice.
No Rating Given
I have no issues with Dr Afridi, however the other medical tech person who took me into the office (took my BP) was less than comforting. She didn't show a caring attitude towards me when asking questions and it felt very impersonal.

Dr. Afridi's an outstanding doctor. She listens very attentively to my issue, and discusses all issues, and treatment plans in depth. I consider her one of the best physicians Edward-Elmhusrt Health has on their staff. I feel very fortunate to have her as a health care provider.

I am looking for a primary care physician and this was my first visit with her. I liked Dr Afridi's approach. The initial interview was thoughtful and comprehensive. I said all I needed to say and she then came back with a plan forward. So we will play this out one step at a time.

Confused. I had come in to possibly establish a new doctor/patient relationship, & an annual physical, unfortunately the appointment felt incomplete.
