G. Patrick Guiteras, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Nothing fancy here.  First, show up.  Second, listen.  Third, be helpful.  Fourth, know what you're doing (if not, get help).  Doctors should be available to patients and should have time to hear what patients say.  The MDVIP Practice provides that opportunity.  It is a privilege to be a Physician.  I try to fulfill these four obligations with every patient.
