Approach To Care
Through open honesty and genuine interest in each individual, Jeremiah Malecek creates an atmosphere without judgment, where a person can feel comfortable to open up to him and discuss those more personal and sensitive topics of their health and wellbeing. There are no topics that are off limits. A person’s story is the key to helping an individual on their personal healthcare journey. Jeremiah takes pride in listening carefully and building a connection that is strong, trusting, and confidential.
In addition to Jeremiah’s special interest in LGBT health, he is completely inclusive and welcomes all cultures, ethnicities, sexualities and ages. Family medicine provides the ability to assist individuals of all ages and backgrounds to provide care to the person as a whole. He enjoys helping individuals achieve their personal health goals through informed and shared decision making. His experience in a holistic physical therapy center prior to PA schooling has furthered his passion for a holistic approach to his care.
