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'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!
