Atul K. Sachdev, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As my patient you are entrusting me with your most valuable asset:  your health.  My philosophy is to partner with my patients by listening and providing the care and education that they need with regard to their health.  I believe that my greatest strength has always been my ability to relate to a variety of different patients and to successfully achieve treatment, recovery and prevention goals based on my knowledge and experience, while taking into consideration the specific goals of the patient.  The role I have in your healthcare is a responsibility that I take seriously.  In the end my patients must be certain that I always have their best interest at heart, for it is only then that I will have met my own goal.
