My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My approach to wellness is as simple as the five fingers on your hand.
  1. Treat every patient as if they were family or close friends.
  2. Give every patient as much time and information as they need.
  3. Detect disease, and ensure wellness, as cost effectively and as early as possible.
  4. Respect the patient’s decision no matter what your own opinion might be.
  5. Communication between doctor and patient should happen as early and as often as needed.

Doctor Songy is most helpful and available at short notice. He helped me to get quick appointments with specialists and that is very much appreciated.

As we age and things happen unexpectanty

from Shanelle in LA February 20, 2015 for Robert E. Songy, MD

I was feeling very poorly. This feeling occurred at a time when I had not re-entered the MDVIP program. I had tried talking with several other doctors who care for me, but I did not feel any better. I called Dr. Songy to get the name of another primary care physician. I felt he would select someone who takes premium interest in his/her patients, as he does. But, he told me to come in… See more

from SAM in LA February 27, 2014 for Robert E. Songy, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Robert Songy since 1982. I had a scare at 52 years old with severe chest pains. I am not the type to rush to a doctor and didn't have a primary care physician. A friend recommended Dr. Songy. He told me to come right in to his office that day and shockingly he said I had a massive heart attack and placed me East Jefferson Hospital immediately. I had a 4… See more

from James in LA February 18, 2014 for Robert E. Songy, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Songy since 2005. I was not always a big fan of visiting with my doctor until I met Dr. Songy. While he is an outstanding doctor, he is one fine human being. I really enjoy my visits with him. He has way of making you feel very comfortable no matter what the circumstances. Seeing him in his office is like visiting with an old friend. He is the primary reason I… See more
