Why Choose Wayland Personal Physicians?

We believe that a strong, personal, doctor-patient relationship is the core of excellence in medical care. This relationship and connection allows a deeper level of mutual familiarity, understanding, and trust to develop between doctor and patient, enabling us to work more closely together for your health and wellness. Closeness with your physician also provides confidence and peace of mind that you will receive comprehensive and individualized care.


Spending quality time together, without feeling rushed or hurried, allows us to get to know each other, focus on what is important to you, identify meaningful goals, and work together to reach them. Valuing and honoring your time, we ensure your visits will start and end on time and that we will be fully focused on you during our time together.

Personalized and Coordinated Care

We personalize your care to align with your needs, goals, and values, and coordinate your care to help you navigate the oftentimes confusing, difficult, and disjointed healthcare system. We play a central role in connecting you with excellent specialists, getting you appointments with those specialists when you need them, and ensuring open and ongoing communication among the members of your healthcare team.

Direct Communication

Communication when and how you need it, including by cell phone, email, text, or video conference outside of office hours, enables us to respond to your questions and concerns quickly and directly, in a way that fits your life and its demands.

Individualized Wellness Plans

Working together to develop an individualized plan to help you get and stay well physically and emotionally is the cornerstone of excellence in primary care. We focus on improving lifestyle factors such as nutrition, fitness, and sleep, understanding your family’s health history, and attaining wellness to help you live a healthy, well-balanced life.
