The day that I knew there had to be a better
alternative to the frenzied and overwhelmed traditional medical
practice was the comment that I received from the last doctor I
visited to try and get to the root of what turned out to be a fairly
simple medical problem that I was having. After spending over an
hour in the waiting room, I finally got in to see the doctor. As
I handed him a list of the symptoms I had experienced in the last
few months (I was tired of explaining it over and over again each
time I got in to see a doctor), his comment was, “I don’t
have time to read this, I can only spend four minutes with you
and then I am on to my next patient.”
After choosing Dr. Scelfo as my primary physician, I can say without
hesitation that it has literally changed my life and my health.
For my family and I, this is medicine the way it should be. When
I hear friends complain about getting an appointment with their
doctor or not being able to reach him/her with questions, I let
them know about Dr. Scelfo. We are able to get an appointment the
same day we call and we have access to him by phone whenever we
need him. With two kids and a full time job, it is such a benefit
to have that kind of immediate access and information when you
need it. More than just being at ease knowing that your doctor
is just a phone call away, the level of care that our family has
received is beyond compare to anything we have ever experienced.
We see him when we need to, we speak directly to him when there
are any questions or issues and he knows our medical history better
than any doctor we have ever been associated with. The kids love
him too, which says a lot when they know he is either giving them
a shot or he’s
taking their blood! When our son busted his head playing basketball,
we by-passed the four hour wait in the emergency room and called
Dr. Scelfo. Forty minutes from the time he had his mishap, he was
back home eating ice-cream with three stitches in his head.
Every friend that I have referred has had the same experience.
They marvel at the convenience and are amazed at the level of care
and attention, and say they could never go back to a traditional
practice. I would agree whole heartedly—our health is too
important. There are no words strong enough to endorse what Dr.
Scelfo is doing with his approach to medicine. Having personal
access to a top-notch physician and the appropriate amount of time
with him when we go in for a visit, gives our family the best medical
care that is available. I have seen it make a difference in our
lives and the lives of my family and friends. This is truly the
way medicine should be.
