Earl C. Lysaker, Jr, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The scope of my practice is two-fold. If you have a medical problem, we will address it promptly and efficiently - any time day or night, 365 days a year. Secondly, we will create a roadmap to your wellness. We will prevent what is preventable and manage with compassion and skill your existing medical conditions. I definitely don't have all the answers, but if I don't, I will find someone who does. Your continued good health is a team effort, and I am honored to be on your team.
