PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY

As an internist, I strive to treat my patients with a focus on overall health and well-being. With Yaffe Ruden & Associates, I have the honor and privilege of building strong relationships with my patients, and establishing myself as their approachable health advocate.

I take pride in offering a personalized approach to care. I like to spend time with my patients, and provide an unrushed and unhurried environment that allows for open and extended conversations about their health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, in recent years, many of my patients have been experiencing long wait times and have felt the need to book appointments up to a year in advance. Continuing to practice medicine and serve patients in the way that I wish to is unsustainable in this increasingly complex healthcare environment. 

To ensure that I can continue providing an elevated level of care into the future, I have collaborated with Castle Connolly Private Health Partners, LLC, (CCPHP) to create a new membership program, Kakoulas CCPHP, LLC. Members will have access to a wide range of membership amenities, such as 24/7 accessibility to me via cell phone, text or e-mail, extended office visits, same- or next-day appointments, virtual telemedicine visits, when appropriate, opportunity to participate in the SENS Solution Health Coaching program, care coordination when you are in the hospital, and enhanced connection to more than 48,000 of Castle Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors®
