Frequently Asked Questions

What doctor will I see?

Every patient in our practice has his or her own doctor. If your doctor is a resident, you may also see the supervising faculty member during some of your appointments.

How are resident physicians supervised?

Our resident physicians are supervised by faculty members. Every visit you have with a resident is reviewed by a faculty member. At times, this may mean that the faculty member will see you along with your own doctor. If not, the details of your care will be discussed with the faculty member at the time of your visit in a separate room. This ensures that you get the very best care.


Will I always see my own doctor?

When you have an appointment scheduled with your own doctor, that is who you will see. If you need to schedule an appointment urgently and your doctor is not available, we may ask if you would like to see another doctor or a nurse practitioner. This often makes it possible for you to be seen sooner.


What is evidence-based medicine?

“Evidence-based medicine” means medical care that is up-to-date with the most current recommendations. Medical research is constantly discovering new ways to identify, prevent and treat illness. We pride  ourselves on being aware of current research so we can provide our patients with the most effective medical care.

For more information, please discuss with your doctor or nurse at your next appointment.
