|We have established
ourselves so that YOU would be able to look to us as your primary source
of health care. We are here for YOU, whether you want us to treat an illness
or to help you maintain good health. Our training allows us to address the
vast majority of medical problems that you may have, and we have good access

We do not require a complete physical on your first visit, but we think
it is important for all of our patients to have a complete physical early
in our association so that we may get to know everyone better medically
and personally. This helps us take better care of you. DFMOC doctors believe
that each patient's life experiences, families health and beliefs affect
their health and how certain treatment will work for them. Knowing a patient
and their family helps us to understand and discuss a person's disease.
Just as everyone has a different personality, every disease has a personality,
and knowing you and your family helps us treat you better!
Modern medicine now has cures and solutions for many serious illnesses,
but what you do to prevent disease is extremely important. We stress good
health habits to our patients: a nutritious diet, regular exercise, adequate
rest, moderation of alcohol use, avoidance of tobacco, seatbelt use, and
opportunities to relax and to enjoy life.
