About Joseph Bettencourt, MD. INC.
Dr. Joseph Bettencourt approaches each patient as a unique individual, directing his efforts to meet their specific health care needs in an evidence-based fashion. The goal in his practice is to always do what is in the best interest of the patient, whether that involves him or not.
In contrast to the “old days,” he practices medicine with the least amount of paternalism as possible. He prides himself on being “down to earth” and communicating in a simple yet informative manner. Patients are presented with treatment options, advise and recommendations relating to their health care which invites their input– there is a conscious effort made to always involve patients in their own healthcare delivery. Dr. Bettencourt believes that approaching patient care with this perspective makes for the most rewarding patient-physician relationship.
