Philosophy:

Aileen Francisco, MD, became a physician to help people. “My father always stressed that it’s important to find a profession where you’re in service to the community, so I looked at several options and chose family medicine.”
She takes a complete approach to patient care. “So many things come into play when you’re treating a patient. It’s not just about their medications or their illness, but what’s happening in their lives that affects the treatment process. I try to involve the patient and their families, and also help empower them to take control of their health.”
In addition to spending time with her husband and two children, Dr. Francisco looks forward to going to work each day. “I enjoy time with my patients, getting to know them and providing individualized care — that’s important to me.”
