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.

I thought there would be more time spent with the provider. she did suggest a few things that I things that I wanted to have done in the past. so with hope my second visit will be more satisfactory.

Dr. Afridi hit on something that I had not thought of (allergies). I realized there were things at home (humidifier - possible mold) that might be affecting me, so her insights moved me to through it out. My allergies have improved, so that must have been part of it.

I was establishing care with new PCP, Dr Afridi. She was very attentive to my questions, had a good knowledge of integrative approaches to health care needs. I was very impressed that she asked about many aspects of my life and health. I felt as though she had a good picture of my life, and ways to maintain and improve health. Was prompt with my lab results and recommendations. It was a positive experience all around.

If I didn't call to put myself on a wait list for a physical I would have had to wait until January. I tried to make an appt at the end of October. This did not make me happy. But alas I did get a call and got in. If there's a big wait time then you should get an email reminder to make your physical appointment at a set time.

wait time was way too long

I've had nothing but good experiences. The lab techs are great even though results are not always what I wish. The clerks and receptionists are always pleasant. The provider and nurse are always great.

My entire visit from the entrance and registration to the doctor's office to the lab were all excellent. The staff and volunteers are all extremely helpful and very nice. The hospital is beautiful and the waiting area is a lot nicer than other hospitals. I am very pleased with my total experience with Dr. Afridi and the hospital staff.
