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 (and her staff) were really terrific! She came in and to my surprise, sat down. She explained what would be taking place and as a new patient, wanted to learn more about me and my history. This was probably the best experience I've ever had with a medical practitioner. She was kind, thoughtful, attentive, and seemed genuinely concerned and interested in my overall well being. We discussed many things and when I went through my list of questions, she was not dismissive of any but rather explained what she could and took action to figure out a plan to resolve the rest. She was very reassuring and did not make me feel silly for asking. She actively listened to me. She also did not make me feel rushed or that she had to get to another appt right away. I left feeling so optimistic, happy and motivated to get myself in better physical shape through diet and exercise. It was a fantastic experience!

It was my first visit to meet with Dr Papuga. She was timely, a great listener and a great responder to my questions. She also made excellent recommendations in a caring, yet factual manner. I was not rushed and she made me feel very comfortable. Dr Papuga will definitely be my primary Dr moving forward... She was excellent!
