Richard O. Brower Jr., MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Simply put, my mission is to heal the sick, comfort the suffering, and conserve the life of the community. I can understand each patient better because of a thorough preventive examination. This understanding enables me to care for each patient as a unique individual, to prevent minor abnormalities from becoming major problems, and to best manage any illnesses when they arise. I expect to treat my patients wherever they are – in the office, the hospital, at home or in a retirement community. The ability to know my patients well and to see them everywhere assures greater continuity of care and overall better treatment.
