Christopher W. Ley, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe in treating my patients with the quality care and compassion they deserve.
After practicing general internal medicine for 24 years, my beliefs, my ethics and my reasons for choosing medicine as a profession remain constant. I am able to take sufficient time to develop and maintain the personal and professional relationships which are critical to providing quality care. I enjoy being able to spend time listening to, studying and discussing each patient's unique issues in order to provide proactive care and assess the multitude of medical issues in a thorough and prompt manner. I find great satisfaction and reward in helping guide my patients through the increasingly impersonal and worrisome world of healthcare. I look forward to coming to work each day to do what I love - spending time with my patients and providing them with the personalized care and compassion they deserve.
