I wanted to be the first to submit a testimonial because I have experienced personalized medicine first hand, and it actually saved my life. Three months into a new job, I discovered a lump in my breast. Due to the nature of that job I didn’t have an opportunity to have any time off to have doctor’s appointments. I did however, have the blessing of having a personal doctor. My personal doctor received a phone call from me and immediately went into action. That day I was given an order for a mammogram and ultrasound if needed. After my ultrasound, my personal physician immediately ordered the biopsy that was needed and the results were given to me in real time, two days later. My extensive plan of care was determined and I was on the fast track to beat stage II breast cancer. One year later, I started having strange symptoms. I texted my personal physician, who saw me after my work hours. Upon physical examination, she made an after hour phone call to a specialist on his cell phone, and I was treated the very next day. That one day event was a side step for me from metastatic breast cancer. Having a personal physician not only saved me from unpaid time off of work and long periods of time worrying, but having a personal physician SAVED MY LIFE! Thank you, Dr. Reed!
