Lakeside practice spends time with each patient
Being a physician-run practice allows Lakeside Family Physicians to focus on patient outcomes instead of overhead, says Dr. Tom Jenike, who was one of the first doctors at the Huntersville location in 1998. Today, there are five physicians here and 30 within the Lakeside group, which serves pediatric to geriatric patients.
Jenike says the practice is dedicated to improving patient health through coordinated care. To help keep costs down for patients, he says Lakeside doctors offer a variety of treatment and testing in-house, whether it’s for a skin condition or sports injury.
Doctors also get to know the patients and families over the years. “It’s not just me writing a prescription and telling them what to do; it’s a joint effort with me and the patient to get them healthy,” he says. “My job is to inspire people to be healthier and happier, and you can’t do that well in five minutes.”
That’s why member Manny Shalon of Cornelius has returned to Jenike for a decade. “He gives you sufficient time to ask any questions and is thorough,” Shalon says.
Member Alane Bearder of Huntersville also found this approach refreshing, noting she feels her physician Dr. Loveleen Barringer always remembers her. “Dr. Barringer takes the time to really hear what’s going on, and as a result, her diagnoses are correct and treatment plans work,” Bearder wrote in one of multiple Page of Happiness nominations for the practice.
