Robert Coney, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My contribution to patient wellness comes from first, having enough time for meaningful talk with each individual, and second, having on hand helpful resources to use when they are needed. Whether we are talking about, healthy adults, people living with chronic illness, or an acutely ill person, my goal is to help them reach and sustain the best health level possible. Happiness is a journey, and working to improve health is an important aspect of that journey.
