Howard Chaitoff, PA-C
"Meet people where they are at.” We all reside at different places on our journey. Each of us has different needs, struggles, goals, and triumphs. I will listen. More importantly, I will hear you and seek to understand how I can help."
I expect the people who take care of me to be compassionate, intelligent, resourceful, dependable, available, and empathetic. I would expect no less from myself in caring for my own patients.
