Marc J. Crupie, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As your family physician I am reminded daily to appreciate the short nature of our existence. I make a conscious choice to persevere in the face of adversity and draw strength from the unparalleled privilege I have enjoyed entering into the lives of others and affect those lives so profoundly. Yet, to me the greatest reward of medical practice has been my relationship with my patients. I consider my patients extended family and I hope they feel the same. I have tried desperately never to lose sight of the fact that I must remain doggedly engaged, persistently constructive and consummately professional in my life and in the care of my patients. Although the challenges I have faced through the 30 years of practicing medicine are many and substantial, fostering the health and well-being of my fellow men and women is a worthwhile cause. A cause I have given the better part of my life to without regret. We make our lives by what we give, not by what we get.
