Dr Joshi and I have been working together for quite a while now and it is a very interesting experience.
Laughter: I have always enjoyed listening to Evelyn laugh and have a great time with patients who she is helping in the frame selection process. I can always hear her through my closed exam room door. Now however there is competition. Dr Joshi is apparently as upbeat and positive as Evelyn, which is quite a life achievement. All day long I hear her laughter as she goes through her examinations with patients or chats with someone at the front desk. What could be better! I see Dr Frank Kessler, in Brewster as my primary care physician because he is always happy, always upbeat and always has a joke to share. Your visit to a doctor should not be stressful or intimidating. It should be positive!
Experience: Though Dr Joshi has 15 years of experience, to me she looks too young for that to be possible. On the other hand, now it looks like she has put about 30 years into the average 15. Why do I say that? Well when I try to teach her some unique computer technology, our holistic office offers, after I demo it, she does it faster then I can follow. Now I think I am pretty smart, but after a while this was a bit intimidating until I discovered that she must read over a 1,000 words a minute! She won’t tell me how fast she
reads but I am still reading at the top of the screen while she is ready to turn the page at the bottom. So never, ever underestimate how much this cheerful lady knows in just 15 years as she can read in a day what most of us cannot do in a month.
Time Well Spent: I have always liked to spend more time with my patients than really makes sense under the miserly fees we get from insurance companies. Nevertheless I have done so for 40 years because that is what being a holistic doctor is all about. It is why I became a doctor. Anything else would ruin my experience and make, what is a joy, into a tedious job that I would not like to be part of. One of the greatest gifts I have been given in finding Dr Joshi, who is gradually taking over the care of my patients, is her desire to do what I am doing, practice holistically. Dr Joshi spends time with patients and gets to know them. She also brings new, creative experience to the field even as she learns what we have done and are still doing. Dr Joshi, like me, is also very interested in technology and how that can make for better care for you and your family. Anticipate being amazed by new technology in your near future visits!
Though I will be moving to sunny Florida, all of our current great staff will be staying on board with Dr Joshi. I am pleased to be leaving all my patients in great hands, Dr Joshi’s !
