Debra Curtis, MDPhysician
“My philosophy for patient care is rooted in creating real, intentional connections with my patients. I take the time to listen and to get to know patients personally as well as medically so that I can be their proactive advocate. It is important for me to have a thorough and problem-oriented approach to patients while taking into consideration a person’s unique situation. I provide comprehensive preventive care and partner with patients to manage their chronic health conditions. I value my patient relationships, which extend beyond the walls of the office, allowing me to provide quality and compassionate care.”
