Joseph F. Nutz, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal is to develop a physician-patient partnership that will maximize the patient’s potential well-being. This will be achieved by first listening to all concerns, formulating a plan of care, and then following it to completion. We can use all technology available to us in the way of medical sensors, telemedicine and health information management systems. We will also use local fitness and health consultants for individual and group goals. If the need arises we will connect with top specialists in the country to get you the best care.
