Philosophy of Care

Medical care should be delivered with the highest level of respect for the individual patient. Time and attention are necessary to truly listen to a patient to understand their history, personal experiences, and goals. There is no substitute for a careful physical exam. A treatment plan represents a collaboration between physician and patient. Patients must take an active role in their healing.

Your First Visit

You will be seen on time. Allow 60-90 minutes for your first visit, where Dr. Diamond will obtain a comprehensive history and perform a careful physical exam, as well as order or review diagnostic tests, if warranted. A discussion of the relevant issues and diagnoses will allow time for your questions. A plan will be composed, which will usually include a program of exercises, and may also include a treatment in the office. Next steps will be clear before you leave.
