The medical practice is modeled after a growing trend of solo private practitioners that are attempting to recapture traditional values of the doctor-patient relationship in our current medical system.
Dr. Podolny's medical practice is designed to enhance the doctor-patient relationship by providing personalized, hands on, accessible health care. He works one on one to provide an appropriate, patient centered, health plan. His extensive studies in both alternative and traditional medical studies allows Dr. Podolny to present a full spectrum of treatment options to the patient, who may then choose which fits best for them.
Established patients have expanded access to Dr. Podolny through his private line and email. Many issues, if appropriate, may be handled over the phone or via the internet.
