Professional Statement

  • I consider myself a "people doctor" a physician who sees each patient as a multi-faceted whole person, not just a single symptom case. I listen, I ask questions, I hear what my patient's say as well as what their bodies tell me. This may take more time, but it is necessary time...to assure each patient receives the complete care she or he requires. The challenge of a difficult diagnosis inspires me. To look at everything,anything,to be ever watchful for those rare conditions,which can go undiagnosed and cause such prolonged suffering for so many. To always remember that patient's aren't just patient's they are people first. Dr. Alexandra Fingesten
