My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe that practicing medicine is an art. A physician's knowledge, prior experience, insight and technical ability all come together when evaluating and treating patients. As a physician, I believe these concepts are very important.
  • Partnership between physician and patient is critical to developing unique approaches customized to your individual needs and preferences. This requires the patient to be forthright with what is going on in his/her life and the physician to listen carefully to the details.
  • I work with you to guide your path to better health as you make choices about your health habits and behaviors.
  • Self-care is often more important than physician prescribed treatments.
  • In addition to diagnosing and treating, my job is to educate, coach and support.
I don’t just believe in wellness, I try to live it personally and professionally and stay informed of the latest developments in medicine and wellness. I’m not just a physician, I’m a health coach. Become an informed participant in your own health care. This involves more than improving your diet or beginning a long overdue exercise program. It involves partnering with your physician to understand what you – and your own unique body – need to sustain a full and rewarding life.

from Cynthia in FL March 28, 2017 for Leslie S. Emhof, MD

I recently became a patient of Dr Emhof, and a member of MDVIP. I knew of Dr Emhof through my sister who was a patient of his years ago before MDVIP. When I called his office and explained my recent health issues, the receptionist, or perhaps nurse, who answered the call, listened to my story. At the time I called I was very upset. She was so caring and kind and it turned out that they were… See more
