I feel it is important to help others and as a health care provider it is a privilege to do so.In your opinion, what should be the role of a primary care provider for a patient, taking into account both physical health and behavioral health needs?My roll as a primary care provider is to provide preventive care and teach healthy lifestyle choices. Identify and treat common medical conditions, both physical and behavioral. It is important to meet people where they are and to help them with meeting their needs.

Reviews on Vitals are submitted by users only. Recognizing the valuable insights these reviews offer into a doctor's reputation, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Importantly, providers cannot delete or alter reviews independently. Reviews can only be deleted or changed following an internal assessment by our customer service team.
