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.

very good friendly people and always quick with answers

I love Dr Papuga. She is professional, kind, caring, knowledgeable and empathetic. She listens carefully and tells me the truth, not what I want to hear, nor does she treat my symptoms as trivial as some in the past have. She will always look for the answers or refer me to a specialist if she doesn't know. She is the most compassionate Dr I have ever found.

I was happy that the doctor saw me so quickly and that she did a urine check to rule out any infection.

the only bad experience I had was the nurse that brought me in was a bit rude and in a hurry - he said ok what refills do you want. I drop my coffee and he got mad. After that he was in a hurry to get me in.

Dr Papuga is nice and caring but I hope she reads my records carefully next time so we can address all issues easily.
No Rating Given
only negative issue is when I need a prescription refill, it takes to long and communication between front desk and doctor/nurses seems to be an issue.

I recently changed medical groups from ... to Edward mainly to be in network with my nephrologist Dr..... Dr. Papuga was wonderful patiently working through all my concerns and assuring me that referrals would be submitted. ... and her colleagues who handle referrals go above and beyond as well. Such a pleasant experience in person and over the phone.
