Lila T. McConnell, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Developing a trusted partnership in wellness between doctor and patient is at the core of my MDVIP practice.  In a welcoming office environment, patient visits will be unhurried to allow sufficient time to listen and attend to your health concerns.  This enables me to more completely incorporate your viewpoint, needs and goals; whether we are working toward maintaining a healthy life-style or discussing the diagnosis and treatment of an acute or chronic medical condition.

I am dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and personal primary care service available.  I strive to assist you in navigating our country's complex medical system and I will steadily encourage you to be an active participant and partner in optimizing your health.
