Pediatric care - We have a large pediatric population. Our clinical staff is trained to attend to the needs of children and our physicians excel at addressing issues of wellness and also illness in children of all ages. We follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Academy of Pediatrics while treating our pediatric patients.
Adolescent care - As Family Physicians and/ or Nurse Practitioners, we have the privilege of caring for adolescents as they grow into adulthood. One of the advantages of seeking care with a family physician is that young children can easily transition into adolescence and young adulthood with the same provider that they have known for many years. This makes it easier for them to become comfortable with the providers throughout their lifetime.
Adult care - We provide comprehensive care to adults including acute care, care for chronic illnesses as well as health maintenance services. We encourage our patients to be active participants in their care and decision making.
Geriatric care - As family-oriented clinicians, we provide care to all ages. It is comforting for our elderly patients to know they have seen their provider for many years.
Gynecologic care - We provide gynecologic care to women of all ages. In addition to routine gynecologic exams (including Pap smears and breast examinations) we treat acute gynecologic problems and provide ongoing womens health care. We are skilled in dealing with issues of sexuality, contraception and menopause.
Dermatologic care - We are able to treat many common skin problems including acne and rashes. We perform cryotherapy procedures on many types of keratoses and warts. We also perform biopsies of questionable skin lesions and surgical removal of certain cysts and moles.
Emergency care - We do provide some emergency services within the office including treatment of some lacerations and orthopedic injuries. We do ask that you call the office before coming in for an emergency as we need to assess whether an office visit is appropriate for your problem or if an emergency room visit is a better option.
Office Surgery - We do many minor office surgery procedures such as skin biopsy, removal of moles, excision of cysts, drainage of abscesses and repair of lacerations.
Orthopedic services - We can evaluate musculoskeletal problems, order x-rays when appropriate and initiate treatment for many orthopedic problems While we do not apply casts or do surgery, we can apply splints and treat other routine orthopedic problems.
Hospital Care - We admit children to the hospitalist service at Connecticut Childrens Medical Center and adults to specialist or hospitalist services at St. Francis Hospital & Medical Center or if desired, to the hospitalist services at Hartford Hospital or UConn Health Center. Hospitalists specialize in caring for hospitalized patients and are at the hospital when patients need them. We communicate closely with the hospitalist during your hospital stay and help you make a smooth transition back to the community when you are better.
