Approach To Care

Dr. Laurel Cushing is a board-certified infectious disease physician with over 15 years of clinical experience. Dr. Cushing has been a customer herself and knows how scary and confusing it is when you’re not the one in the white coat. She strives to listen to her customers’ concerns in order to devise an appropriate diagnostic and treatment plan. She is committed to educating her customers and communicating with their referring providers. Most of all, she tries to remember how scared she felt when she suddenly needed care and how fortunate she was to have been served by a caring and compassionate team. That’s the kind of care Dr. Cushing wants to give her customers.
