Polar Pediatrics offers personalized care. You will see the same doctor at every visit, allowing for a trusting relationship and consistent recommendations.
We feel a huge office with multiple employees is simply unworkable. This kind of practice leaves the patient feeling rushed through the "assembly line" and the doctor feeling she is restricted from practicing what she knows to be good medicine. Imagine arriving on time for your appointment and being seen on time. You'll love our artistic waiting room, but chances are you won't spend any time there. No worries, the exam rooms are just as artistically decorated.
Dr. Karaganis created her practice based on the Ideal Medical Practice model. Most beneficial is the time afforded for building a close doctor-patient relationship.
"The Ideal Medical Practice - a practice model designed to enhance doctor-patient relationships, increase face-to-face time between doctors and patients, reduce physician workloads, instill patients with a sense of responsibility for their health and cut wasted dollars from the entire system. The model encompasses the ideal micro practice model, which focuses on optimizing the smallest functional work unit capable of delivering excellent care: the solo doctor, even without any staff. The key principles ideal medical practices pursue are high-quality, patient-centered, collaborative care; unfettered access and continuity; and extreme efficiency.” from the website of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
