Internal Medicine

Anthony Pho, NP

Why I went into medicine?
As an ER nurse I worked with many patients in acute distress.  While this was gratifying, I often wished I had the opportunity to help manage chronic health problems earlier.  As a nurse practitioner, I enjoy working in internal medicine because I have more time to get to know and work with patients to promote their health.

My philosophy approach to medicine?
I enjoy the diversity of my patients that come from all walks of life.  I take time to listen to patients and I love to answer questions.  I want patients to understand their care and how to maximize their lives.  I like finding solutions for my patients that are simple, practical and cost-effective.
