Sugar Land practice focuses on early detection
Houston member Charles Bouse says he’s still alive because of Sugar Lakes Family Practice doctor John Pozzi. Three separate times, Pozzi detected unusual problems in Bouse’s health, each at an early stage, and sent him to a specialist.
Sugar Lakes’ philosophy focuses on preventive medicine and early diagnosis, says Dr. John Vanderzyl, who founded the practice with Pozzi.
Member Darlene Marshall of Sugar Land is grateful for this philosophy: She says her husband learned of a blocked artery in his leg during a routine checkup that a cardiologist had previously missed.
Vanderzyl says he is always looking for ways to get patients more involved in their own health care and allows patients to access online lab results.
He notes that there are seven doctors at the practice and all of them are keen to foster friendly communication with their patients. “We want to get to know our patients so [their] experience ... at our office is different from any other.”
Bouse certainly appreciates the friendly atmosphere. He says staff members always make his visits pleasant. “The wait time is very good,” Bouse says. “Once they put you in the room, it’s not long before [the doctor] comes in.”
