Welcome

         The Brookside Family Health Center is a comprehensive family medical practice caring for patients of all ages.  Having opened in 2008, this state-of-the-art facility is staffed by a small team determined to avoid the rushed schedule that plagues most medical offices.  


        The goal is to provide our patients with the kind of care that we ourselves would like to receive. This is quite unique in today’s healthcare environment.  Our unhurried, personalized approach encourages a remarkable cooperative relationship to develop between the physician and the patient.  This special relationship has been the cornerstone of the practice of medicine for centuries, but unfortunately is being lost in many group practice settings in recent years.   

 

         We keep our schedule light because being “too busy” is a mistake that we refuse to make.  We schedule enough time to fully evaluate and care for our patients so that they don’t feel rushed, and mistakes can be avoided.  This “light schedule” ensures that we do not run overtime, so patients are seen on-time.  We see sick patients the same day as we feel that delaying care simply allows conditions to worsen.  


          Dr Giroux is a solo-physician who knows his patients extremely well, and prides himself on his sense of responsibility, compassion, and thoroughness.  He is personally accessible, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and he even does house calls when necessary.  It’s all part of having a personal physician who very much enjoys his calling and truly cares about his patients.


NOTE: The office is up and running fully for in-person visits.

                  We can still do a “Telemedicine” visit for folks that have symptoms of Covid-19.     

To schedule either type of visit, just call the office as usual.  

    For a “telemedicine” visit, Dr Giroux will see you by videochat over the internet using a secure, HIPAA compliant service.  You will need a device with a webcam and microphone, such as a laptop or a cellphone with a good Wifi connection. No special app is required, just your web browser.  


    Dr Giroux will meet you on the videochat service at the scheduled time.

    The two steps take just a couple minutes.
