John Vukelich, M.D.

To me, medicine is a mission.  My role is earning the trust of patients by listening in a non-judgmental way, showing a sincere interest in their life, and treating them with kindness and compassion.  I encourage patients to be open and honest with me.  I want them to think of me as their advocate.  Family medicine provides unique rewards to doctors in that it gives them an opportunity to develop long-term relationships with patients, and I consider this a great privilege.
