Think prevention and early detection

We now answer our phone as “Doctor’s office” rather than “Doctor Staw’s office,” and there’s a reason.

As of Monday, January 16, a new physician in town is sharing office with me. His name is William Sanchez, specializing in family practice. Dr. Sanchez was born in the Dominican Republic, where he also attended medical school. He did his medical training at Columbia Presbyterian in New York City and at the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ.

While Dr. Sanchez and I will each maintain our separate practices, both of us expect to be working closely together; we firmly believe in the value of early detection and preventive medicine. Office cost sharing will allow both of us to give our patients the type of service which is only available in a “solo practice.”

Our office is now in the midst of implementation of our newly acquired EMR (electronic medical records) system. It takes a little while to get used to it, but I know it will be worth it at the end. More about it in the next blog(s).

Don’t forget to request your renewals by email at You can also contact me for non-urgent matters at

Stay warm.
