Philosophy of Care

I like patients who are involved in their medical care decision-making. I prefer to give them all the options so they don’t think something is forced upon them. That way, they’re more connected to their success.

I’m also a big believer in the team approach we have in our practice, covering each other and seeing each other’s patients when necessary. As a staff, we have an excellent team of physicians and nurses, all with a common goal: helping our patients and taking care of them through all the stages of life.

After moving here and transferring my medical care from [...] to Providence and Dr. Gupta, I could not be more satisfied. Dr. Gupta has been a perfect fit for me and certainly one of the most caring physicians I have ever had.

Emailed the doctor about condition, never got an answer or an email back. Called in and left a message with the doctor's nurse, never got a call back, said she didn't get the message. The receptionist said she left a message for the nurse. Ended up seeing a different doctor not familiar with my father.

This client is 99 1/2 and senile. She cannot answer by herself. Geriatric needs like hers are not well understood by her doctor, who is not a specialist. In fact a geriatric specialist was not available anywhere in your system. The primary problem is getting "home care". She's been referred twice. The 2nd time we didn't hear from them and I had to call. Found out she was referred for PT but not nursing, which she needs. At 99 1/2 new problems are almost daily. Client now has an ulcer developing from being bed-ridden. Still waiting. This physician, I'm told, will not take verbal contact and written messages take time. Meanwhile, we wait. Not happy with this care due to patient's age. For a younger patient, this doctor would be fabulous so the above question would depend on age and health of the client.

Although I was do for a physical on this day, due to a fall, I was 10 minutes late for my appointment. After connecting with my doctors nurse, I was still able to have a routine visit. My needs were met and further appointments, tests, set up or completed. Thank you. Also, due to Dr. [...] busy schedule, I have been seeing Dr. Gupta for numerous appts. Although I have a "great" history with Dr. [...], I chose to add Dr. Gupta as my primary doctor.

Every time I have a medical issue, a referral is made for another Md. I chose this Dr. because she was a board certified internist. I had to wait for 3 months to get a appointment for new Patient. I don't feel like it is my family doctor, just a referral service. Very little hands on, just sits in front of computer and ask questions.

Dr. Gupta became argumental with me, raised his voice to me. Lacks communication skills. When I asked questions about my health she shrugged her shoulders I don't know. Because of this experience I choose to never return to her office.

Dr seem to have forgotten that I was still in the room. After my exam, she left to let me get dressed and she stated that she was going to go get my orders, and then she never came back. It was only when the MA came in to clean the room, that she found me still waiting. Seemed really odd to me. She is usually very detailed.

I Like Dr. Gupta, My Only Issue Is That This Is The First Time Ever That I Have Had A Female Doctor And I Am Just A Bit Hesitant With What I Share With Her. […] After Months And Months Of Trying To Find A Primary Care Physician And Trying To Get A Male Dr. In The Same Facility I Was Told Dr. Gupta Was Taking New Patients. Nothing Against Her I Just Would Have Liked To Have Had A Male Physician. I Suppose That One Day I Will Find It Easier To Speak More Freely With Her, […]
