Irwin S. Korngut, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The current healthcare landscape has erected barriers between physicians and their patients which impede and complicate care while creating angst and frustration in everyone.  My goal as a physician has been and always will be to do everything in my power to maintain a strong doctor - patient relationship.  Medicine is a partnership and I am dedicated to being your advocate and to provide personalized care to each and every one of my patients.  I am committed to empowering my patients to stay healthy, but in the event that one should develop an illness I will devote my time and resources to help that individual get the finest, most appropriate care available.  This is my responsibility as a physician and my obligation to my patients.
