Peter F. Blomgren, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Medical students are taught that if they listen to their patients, they will tell you what is wrong with them.  The longer I have been a physician, the more I believe this is true.  This means understanding not just what a person says, but also what they are trying to say.  It no longer surprises me if I ask a patient what their diagnosis is, when they tell me and it turns out to be correct.

The most satisfying part of being a primary care physician is that patients usually come to me first.  As a result, I see them with the widest variety of different situations, symptoms and concerns.  I know many patients as well as I know close friends.  I am in a position to listen to many different types of people from a vast array of backgrounds.  It is an extraordinary privilege to not just be able to provide medical care but also to have them share with me their personal experiences.  I can think of no other profession that has the advantage of this perspective.  It is so excellently interesting and stimulating.

MDVIP has allowed me to continue to practice in a manner where taking time with patients and striving for excellence is rewarded.  I want patients to feel satisfied with their care and how they are treated by me and my entire staff.  I want them to feel that we have given them the best we have to help them work through an illness or avoid one by prevention.  This model supports my relationship with my patients.  I can think of nothing more rewarding.
