The science is self-evident – by
Dr. Pianko provides the highest level of medical care. However, there is more to medicine than science. The art of medicine entails forging personal connections with one’s patients, communicating with family members, and being available day or night for whatever the patient needs.
Only by listening to the patient and keeping the patient’s family involved when wanted or required can the whole person be cared for. In this sense, Dr. Pianko is an old-time family doctor: he makes himself available to his patients and their families, even giving out his cell phone to maximize availability.
The practice relies on a four-pronged approach to healthcare provision that incorporates both the art and the science of medical care, and this approach is in turn a pledge to provide the best care to each and every patient:
1. Listen to the patient.
2. Be available to the patient.
3. Communicate with and involve family in treatment decision making.
4. Coordinate complete care of the patient by enlisting other specialized physicians and utilizing advanced medical technology.
Through this approach, Dr. Pianko handles medical challenges immediately and effectively, thereby avoiding the potentially harmful mistakes that commonly occur when patients do not have a primary care physician who knows them well. This approach also enables Dr. Pianko to provide a high level of preventative care, thereby resolving potential medical issues before they become serious.
Dr. Pianko is available at every stage of care, from the office to the hospital, from assisted living to rehabilitation; he is there for every patient at every step. This is especially important in the care of elderly patients whose families may live far away - a doctor who advocates for the patient and communicates with family even from long distances can be the difference between excellent or simply adequate health care.
