Havre de Grace oral surgeon Dr. Leonard Spector explains why his patients get the best of both worlds in his practice—high tech office and personal care.
As a solo care provider I can give personal, directed care that I am convinced you cannot provide in a group or corporate setting. In a group or corporate environment, you might have to compromise on the different options you are giving to the patient or even the types of materials types available in the office depending on the philosophy of that practice
Even when it comes down to the staffing, in a group practice or corporate setting you may not have direct input into who is going to be working with you on a daily basis. Because I believe strongly in the team approach, I have been able to hire very competent, seasoned, compassionate team members to work with me daily in my solo oral surgery practice.
Because I am the only doctor, I can set my amount of time that I will spend with a patient. It is important to me that I get to know the patient and the patient gets to know me. So, at an initial consultation, I do not feel rushed or pressured to allow only a certain amount of time with a patient. I can take my time and provide personalized care.
Another advantage of practicing by myself is that I can apply my philosophy regarding patient care. For example, I can choose which specialists I want to work with, and I believe this results in a high degree of patient satisfaction. I have also opted to develop a state of the art facility, so the patients get the best of both worlds—a modern, high-tech facility and one doctor who is willing to spend time with patients.
