Van Q. Pham, DO, became a primary care physician for the patient relationships and the intellectual challenges. He finds great satisfaction in helping patients overcome disease as well as building life-long friendships.
I chose primary care because I like being in the clinic where I have direct interaction with my patients, being able to talk and listen to their concerns. I like having strong, long-lasting bonds with my patients.
Dr. Pham's care philosophy focuses on educating patients on their overall health disease-processes and associated evidence-based treatments. He truly believes that he can help reduce the number of unnecessary tests and treatments by improving a patient's overall well-being and lifestyle.
When he was 14 years old, Dr. Pham immigrated to the United States with his family. He speaks Vietnamese fluently and loves to explore different parts of the world by traveling with his wife. When he is not working or traveling, Dr. Pham enjoys online gaming, tinkering with home electronics, snowboarding and is a beginner golfer.
