Irving Mizus, MD, FCCP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy is to always put my patients first, provide physical and emotional comfort and strive for the best care possible through listening and educating.
I treat my patients in the manner I desire to be treated, and I will continue to guide them through the complexity of today's healthcare system. I believe each patient is a complex individual with his/her own unique biopsychosocial components. I care about how my patients feel, how they want to be treated, how they live and how life has effected them. I am able to take the necessary amount of time with my patients to address all of their concerns and answer all their questions inside and outside of the office.
