Philosophy Of Care

I believe family medicine is where the whole family can come to be seen, whether for preventative care or health related issues. My philosophy is that medicine is a partnership between physician and patient, and as your partner, I am dedicated to listening to your needs, so we can together keep you healthy.

Dr. Papuga went above and beyond during my latest visit. I had a lot of concerns about my Pap smear and felt very nervous for it and she listened to my concerns, made me feel heard, explained the entire procedure to me, and when she was doing the procedure - she told me everything that would happen before it did and was gentle and kind and compassionate during. She showed enormous empathy and made the environment feel so safe. I am so incredibly grateful.
