Philosophy Of Care

I believe that good patient care comes from good patient communication. Healthcare is a partnership between you and your doctor and should never be perceived otherwise. Effective medicine and patient outcomes stem from a strong alliance between patient and healthcare provider who have common goals to achieve a healthy well-being.

I go yearly to my annual visits and every time I feel like I'm a number and 15-20 minutes of the doctors time. she never reviews the charts before she sees me because everything seems to be a surprise. I did blood work prior and she didn't know. I have medical history I have shared every time and it doesn't stay documented. I tell her how I'm feeling and she doesn't seem to pay attention. I even asked a question about my blood results from a couple days ago and I have not received a response. At this point I am going to try to find another physician who went to school because they genuinely care about getting to know their patients.

I'm very happy with Dr Deguzman's care. I usually see her every 6 months and renewal of my prescriptions. She listens and is thorough with my health care needs. She really cares. I love that. I feel that everyone I have come in contact with at this facility is very nice and helpful and my wait is never a long one. I appreciate this. Thank you Dr Deguzman and staff!
