Leslie W. Rose III, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As an Internist, I work for my patient to advance my patient's interests.

My approach is to gain a thorough knowledge of my patient and my patient's health and use my training and experience to promote wellness in all respects. I act to restore and enhance my patient's physical and mental function to its maximum extent while paying careful attention to comfort and the patient's desires and circumstances, working together toward the best possible results.

Despite the trials and tribulations of modern healthcare, I will always be my patient's advocate and explore and explain all the medical options available in a partnership designed to help them meet their needs and reach their goals.
