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.

Excellent experience. Dr. Afridi's is the best doctor I have ever seen. She is professional, efficient, helpful, personable and extremely skilled.
