My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Practicing good medicine includes a partnership between doctor and patient - a partnership based on mutual trust and respect that is earned, not given. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I have more time to develop close relationships with my patients, carefully review records and perform comprehensive exams. Being your private doctor, we can work as a team and formulate a wellness plan that will help you achieve your health goals. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. There are no short cuts to being healthy and no simple formulas or “one-size-fits-all” approaches when it comes to the well-being of my patients. My primary care practice provides care that can help make a happy, healthy future your reality.  

With 40 years of practicing in the community, I have relationships with many specialists to help you with your unique needs. I may be your internal medicine doctor, but I also have interests in cardiovascular health, diabetes, hypertension and preventive medicine. I see myself as specializing in you, my patients.

About the Practice/Practice News

Telemedicine Option: I am also using telemedicine visits to stay connected with my patients when they are unable to see me in the office. It is easy to do, and we have maintained our momentum with preventive health goals and chronic care during difficult times.

from Bruce in NY March 1, 2018 for Alan J. Nelson, MD, FAAFP
