ABOUT THE PRACTICE
Our mission is simple - to make you feel and stay healthy!
How is Vermont Integrative MD different than your typical primary care practice?
Initial visits with Dr. Bazel are 1 hour to 1.5 hours depending on the time needed to discuss your health history and current problems.
Follow-up visits are 30 minutes, or longer if needed.
This gives your doctor time to discuss lifestyle interventions in detail and come up with an individualized treatment plan that works for you.
The focus is a collaboration between you and your physician. Your doctor will work with you to come up with a plan that best fits your needs and your health care goals.
Furthermore, there will be no long waits to see your doctor. If you are sick, Dr. Bazel will schedule you for a visit within 1 to 2 days in the office.
Every appointment will be with Dr. Bazel, guaranteeing that you will have continuity with your doctor each and every visit.
Phone and email access is available for urgent needs after hours during the week and on weekends. Dr. Bazel also sees patients at assisted living facilities or can drive to your work place or home for an additional fee if needed.
