Philosophy of Care

My philosophy of care is to treat each patient as I would want my family to be treated.  It means listening to them and their concerns before bringing up my own.  It means not just providing a physical and some medications but a lending hand and a listening ear. I hope to form a relationship of trust by being an advocate for my patients.  Above all my philosophy is to provide respect to each and every person, and to give them the time and care they deserve.

Interests

Medical Interests

I am interested in care of the underserved and marginalized populations both nationally and internationally. I am intrigued by healthcare systems and their role in aiding or worsening the care and access for these populations. I also am interested in learning about and applying newer and novel ideas to approach care and education within underserved populations. I hope to focus some time on maternal and child health, environmental health, and community health education.

Personal Interests

I enjoy doing almost anything with family and friends regardless of whether it is my favorite thing to do or not, skydiving might be a bit much though. I like to stay active and my favorite things to do are to swim or ride my bike, but I’m game for almost anything, and I’m looking forward to getting back into skiing. I also grew up doing a lot of baking and making crafts, so I like to make things for people to celebrate special occasions or to say thank you.

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I waited in the exam room for over an hour! Doctor didn't know why my skin was breaking out with large lumps (Not Acne), but told me to see my primary care physician, take medication and that I don't need to see him anymore. I took many months to get this appointment only to be extremely disappointed!

today I really appreciated the front desk woman at the West Side Providence clinic. ([...]) I was on my way to a testing location not a part of providence. I had the wrong address. I knew the order would be in my chart. I of course didn't remember my password. I stopped by the clinic and the front desk person generously looked up my information and printed off the information that I needed. she saved me from going home and starting all over again!

When told I had a negative blood test result there was no discussion about the possible outcomes - left me worried and unsure.

She was wonderful. Eye to eye contact, knowledgeable, made me feel like I was her only patient. Been with a PRIOR dr. 7 yrs. who needs to retire. No hands on care at all. Dr. Achterman is a wonderful change.

I have gone through a few providers so it was hard to get for each dr to get to know me each time. I think with Dr Achtermen it took her awhile to see I was genuine.
