What Makes Us Different
When you or someone in your family has a medical problem the only things that really matter are whether your doctor listens to you, knows what she’s doing, works to get the most appropriate treatment for you and addresses your concerns and questions. Dr. Curosh does this.
This is why Dr. Curosh believes that although buzzwords, technologies and treatments may change, medicine ought be practiced the old-fashioned way. You talk to your doctor, and together you come up with a plan that’s best for you. Not what is best for your insurance company or some administrator. Best for you, given your own personal circumstances. Because of this, here is how Dr. Curosh has chosen to set up and run her medical practice for over 20 years.
Unlike many of the large and hospital-owned medical groups that become big business in the U.S. today, Dr. Curosh operates an independent solo practice. This means that when you come to her office you will see her, not some other doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. Dr. Curosh believes that if you care enough about your medical condition that you’ve gone out of your way to see a medical specialist, then you ought to be able to see the expert you’re paying. On weekends and during vacations, Dr. Curosh shares call with several other endocrinology physicians who she knows and trusts. This means that any doctor who takes your call will be either Dr. Curosh or another experienced endocrinologist.
Because she focuses so intensely on diagnosing and managing endocrinology problems, all of Dr. Curosh’s patients must have a primary care physician who can provide or coordinate the care needed for any non-endocrine problems that may arise over time. Many insurance plans will also require that you have a primary care doctor who can refer you to medical specialists such as Dr. Curosh, or for special medical tests.
Over her career Dr. Curosh has taken care of many of the same patients for over 20 years, and multiple generations within the same family. She is committed to all of her patients, but has learned over the years that she can do the most good for those who care about their health and want to get well. In most cases this means that you are expected to learn about your medical condition, take it seriously, keep your appointments, adhere to the treatment plan agreed upon and let her know if you’re having problems.
