At Gulf West Medical Associates in Port Richey, Florida, patients can be sure of one-on-one attention and five-star care. Owner and head clinician Rajesh B. Dave, MD, is an experienced, board-certified internal medicine physician who passionately feels that patients should know they'll see their doctor — not a substitute —when they visit.

In recent years, health care has undergone significant changes. The spread of large groups and corporate ownership has had a substantial impact on the doctor-patient relationship in many cases. This change is particularly noticeable in primary care settings as doctors move around more.

It's also becoming more common to see a nurse practitioner or physician assistant instead of a doctor. Even when patients do see the same doctor regularly, it's unlikely they'll see their doctor when they're in the hospital, as most physicians don't offer this service. That means when patients are seriously unwell, and in the greatest need, they don't receive treatment from the doctor who knows them best. Instead, they see a hospital doctor who they've probably never met before.

For those who yearn for old-fashioned care, patients have a choice. At Gulf West Medical Associates, patients can expect to see Dr. Dave at each visit. His patients trust him with their annual physical and preventive health care to management of conditions like arthritis or diabetes. The practice has an on-site phlebotomist, so you can have blood taken in the office for testing.

Many on Dr. Dave's staff have worked with him for years—in some cases, twenty or more. They all take pride in providing compassionate care at a time when the medical field is becoming more corporate.

If you'd like to experience the benefits of an old-fashioned physician-patient relationship, call Gulf West Medical Associates today or book an appointment online.
