Want to discuss more effective strategies to help you manage your chronic illness?

The healthcare system has changed a lot over the years. Many people remember a time when doctors sat with you and really got to know the issues you diseasewere dealing with. They didn’t just write a prescription and send you on your way; they actually listened to your needs. Nowadays, people find that most doctors rush them in and out of the office, spending no more than 10-15 minutes with them; however, if you are dealing with a chronic health problem you need more individualized care and attention. This is where our Southfield, MI, physician, Dr. Antoine Geffrard, comes in!
