  • Based on a survey of our patients, we found a consistent theme of what frustrates them about conventional medicine practices and why they felt First Health was different. Since identifying these 4 key areas, we have made a consistent effort to offer our absolute best to:Listen attentively to Patients concernsMake the patient the driving force as the center of careMinimize wait timesExplain all the options for treatment, and give the patient choices (medications, alternative medicine, nutritional medicine/supplementation, psychological medicine)
  • Design notes: list of providersWe want this to look much more inviting—these chairs are way too cold.Had thoughts about putting the actual providers in the chairs. Could be an actual live picture with a sample patient in the red chair or could be a group of providers sitting around the table.
