Dr. Long values the doctor-patient relationship and understands that superior health can only be obtained through a collaborative effort between the doctor and patient. He feels that a patient is best served when the patient is best informed and this cannot happen in the current, traditional medicine model. His true love is improving patient health through patient education and motivation to make positive changes to effect positive health outcomes. He understands that fragmented care is the cause of some of the worst outcomes in the current system and believes that as an Internist, he should be the hub of health care for the patient, participating in all aspects of patient care.
