"The biopsychosocial model of medicine is an empathic framework and compassionate paradigm for practicing medicine. It was developed nearly 50 years ago by one of my mentors in residency, Dr. George L. Engel, and maintains a timeless relevance. It provides a humane understanding of people from multiple perspectives: as a biological, psychological and social being. The model is congruent with the fact that residents of The Villages® bring a multitude of life experiences to the community and are empowered to be active participants in their health care. It serves as an anchor of understanding for assisting my patients in working toward, achieving and maintaining their optimal level of health."

After my surgery the care was incredible. It was coordinated by my physicians. I didn't have to do anything. They informed me that a nurse would be coming to my house for the next two weeks, every other day, as well as a physical therapist.
